Carter’s IB Students Sharpen Research & Reflection Skills in the LLC

Carter’s IB Class of 2020 participated in a full-day Extended Essay Research Workshop this week in the LLC. The workshop provided a tutorial on research and reflection best practices including: accessing databases and peer-reviewed academic sources; proper citation and formatting; note-taking and synthesizing information; effective communication with mentors; time management of the EE process; and formal and informal documentation of reflections and learning. Students left the workshop with a plethora of new skills, tools and strategies for success as they dive into their research, and they are eager to put their learning into practice as they explore a subject area they are passionate about.

Led by our stellar Extended Essay Team, Ms. Dametto, Mrs. Lambropoulos and Mrs. Magloughlen, the session was a tremendous success. We are grateful for their enthusiasm in helping students glean a greater depth of skills and understanding throughout the EE process.

We can’t wait to celebrate the academic merit of our students’ hard work in the coming months!
