Deep Dives: Passion Projects 2020-2021
Deep Dives projects begin on March 1 at 9:00am
Before Deep Dives Week:
We’ll have an overview session on Wednesday Feb 24 at 9:30am (Zoom link will be posted on Schoology). At that Feb 24 meeting you’ll learn who’s in your group and what teacher is facilitating. We’ll also review the expectations below.
Expectations during Deep Dives Week:
Participate in a daily check in (~30 min) with your group
- • Discuss your progress
• Plan your next steps
• Explore guiding questions together
Work on your project for 4-6 hours each day.
- • Part of this time can include working towards your presentation (see below).
• This time will also include community building time as organized with your group.
You are welcome and invited to work on your project with your friends (virtually or in person with COVID-precautions in place). The Kehillah building and parking lot will be open and available (times to follow) to work if your project is doable at school (sorry, no cooking, sharing food, or singing on campus).
- On Wednesday March 10, you’ll present your projects to your group and one other group during Beit Midrash. These presentations can be a podcast, video, slideshow, animation, spoken reflection, artistic creation etc and need to show or discuss what you did and what you learned during your Deep Dives week. Students should expect to be “on” for 3-4 minutes each. We will record these sessions. Some examples of model presentations are below.
