Poster concept

Nov. 6, 2019 | Form VII students in Ms. Rommens' IB Social & Cultural Anthropology class received their finished posters from the printer this morning.

After nearly two years of research that included choosing a topic and research question, developing a methodology, as well as completing a social science lab report, Form VII IB Social & Cultural Anthropology students are seeing the fruits of their labour in the form of swanky research posters. The project started in their Form VI year when they decided which topics they wanted to study. "Students had to choose a research topic related to the 10 key concepts: belief & knowledge, power, social relations, identity, change, culture, symbolism, society, and materiality," Ms. Rommens explained. "Once they came up with a topic they had to present their research proposal to the class and revise it based on the feedback they received from their peers." Students did the bulk of their research during the summer months and have spent the beginning of the school year finalizing their lab reports and posters. Ms. Rommens will be organizing a symposium in the library after the November Break to give her students the chance to present their work and display their posters to the community. We can't wait to find out more about these in-depth projects!
