Saint Mary’s IB team met June 15th and 16th with the following goals in mind:

1)  Create an overall view of projects and objectives for 6th, 7th and 8th grade with special attention and giving priority to 8th grade.

2)  Reduce amount of grading of projects, for example:  Research / Write, Perform/Present/Communicate assessed by three different teachers can be consolidated.

3)  Reduce the number of projects.  Integrate projects within subjects to reduce the number of projects assigned to each student.
