Extended Essay and EPQ JAWS 2014
at Jerudong International School, Brunei
Friday 14th and Saturday 15th February 2014

This Job Alike Workshop is an opportunity for you to share good practice and co-construct new knowledge on the IB Extended Essay or Extended Project Qualification for A level students with other FOBISIA teachers across the region. All participants will be actively involved in the planning of the agenda and will be provided with opportunities to contribute. All sessions will be led or facilitated by the participants.

Please let me know what topics you would like to be added to those suggested below in the Survey Monkey form, linked below. Is anyone able to facilitate any of these sessions? There will be opportunities to share ‘challenges’ you may be experiencing in your own schools. Some of the sessions will be specific to each course whilst other sessions will cover the skills needed for both courses.

Proposed session ideas include:
Extended Essay:-
• Standardization material, moderation/examiner’s reports and exemplars (from IB) of precisely what makes an excellent extended essay in each of the group areas. i.e. material for science, languages, art, English, literature, maths, humanities, etc.
• Alternative time frames -contrasting between those that deal with it in a discrete block of time, and those that run it over an extended period.
• How to share practice and foster a community of EE?
• The nature of “Holistic Judgement” criteria, and how to design for success in this area
• Writing purposeful research questions
• Value of the viva voce

Extended Project Qualification:
• Standardization material, moderation/examiner’s reports and exemplars : Understanding the rubric and how it needs to be applied when marking the project
• Presentation skills: Activities to help students with a fear of public speaking for the presentation
• Ways of monitoring students without having to chase up individuals
• How to know if a student has used a sufficient range of resources?

EE and EPQ:
• Degrees of training and preparation for students – Plagiarism/abstract/overarching purpose/research/referencing and literature skills etc
• How to deal with non-engaging students- The process of dealing with a supervisor relationship is as valuable as the document/mark at the end, and is an important preparation for HE. Are we supportive rather than punitive?
