Journeys School 10th Grade Personal Projects: Talking to Strangers
Editor's Note: At Journeys School, all 10th grade students complete a Personal Project as part of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program. Each student chooses a topic of personal interest, identifies a goal for their learning, researches their topic, creates a product to address their goal, and reflects on the process. Personal Projects are a great opportunity for students to work independently on a subject of personal interest and to make a product to share their learning and reflection with others. During the next few weeks, we’ll be highlighting these Personal Projects on the TSS blog. Take a look at our earlier posts on fingerstyle guitar, crocheting hats, and cross-country skiing.
I chose to do this project because of my interest in sociology, photography, and philosophy. I would walk up to a person I didn't know, introduce my project, and ask if they would like to participate. I asked them three philosophical questions and took their picture. This was an interesting experience for me because I enjoyed talking to people I had never met and learning about different views on life.
