Interview with Katherine Audrey - Deux-Soleils
In your opinion, what is the decisive factor in the success of a project in a school?
Passion is the basis for success, but also the skill with which the activity is structured and planned. Actually, the two go hand in hand. An initial project can act as a model, depending on the setting. Moreover, it is important not to limit oneself to one type of project: hence, projects featuring the arts or science can allow students - because they are our focus - to discover and learn in a different way.
Other teachers can follow suit; one recommendation is to provide as much documentation as possible on a project so that the school administration can evaluate its substance, as well as the time allotted. Even though the first year will undoubtedly see adjustments, it is nevertheless a good thing to document everything.
A self-assessment of the project along the way is vital, making it easier to extend a new initiative. The assessment will be useful with regard to planning and sustainability.
In any case, the first step is for the project initiator to put in writing any idea he or she might have. Words alone cannot bring a project to life. Also, it can be easier to implement a project if it is connected to an existing one in school.
The assessment will outline the objectives. It will also explain why the project would be of interest to the school.
A pre-planning exercise can help demonstrate the FEASIBILITY of a project within a time frame. It can begin with an activity calendar featuring dates and times. Then, a pre-list of student names could help identify those who are most likely to be interested in the activity.
To ensure the project is well understood and that it achieves the desired impact, it needs to be submitted to the Governing Board. Subsequently, the parents will assume the role of intermediaries by promoting the activity among students and other parents.
For the report to be complete, it must include a survey that validates the interest in, and enthusiasm for, the project.
1. Write the project description
2. Provide a structure and time frame
3. Identify the goals and objectives
4. Justify the choice of students
5. Make adjustments based on the survey data
6. Formalize the project
7. Start the project
8. Identify and evaluate the drivers of progress via the self-assessment
Finally, it is important that the project initiator embody the project; in other words, he or she must live and breathe the activity in question. An added consideration is the network of resource people who can contribute to the project. It takes innovative thinking to come up with ways other than financial to obtain material resources and human riches.
