English 4-Senior Thesis
English 4 - The Senior Thesis is part of the capstone project for students at Bridges High School. During the course, students will demonstrate the knowledge and skills they have acquired up to this point in their lives by designing a large project focused on a topic of their choice. The Senior Thesis, written during this course, is a 15-20 pages research paper of original work by the student and will require that the student not rely solely on information and experiences they already have, but should incorporate new learning from research and personal experiences. The course will focus on building and assessing the student’s skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening, as well as, their ability to access information, question their own assumptions, problem-solve and organize a large project. Weekly Socratic seminars are included in the course and will cover a variety of subjects as selected by the instructor. Honors level work is available for this course, please speak with the instructor.
