One step closer to graduation … Senior Project done!

Congratulations to year 3 students who have completed their Senior Projects (gymnasiearbete)!  This is the only course in our high school where students can choose their own topic and work in a group or individually.

When students were allowed to choose the topic of their choice within their program focus, we had many interesting topics:IMG_1752

MUSIKEXPORTÖREN –SVERIGE

Syftet med denna uppsats är att analysera anledningar till Sveriges stora internationella framgångar inom populärmusik.

Potentiell förklaring till autism?

After writing their research paper, students were also tasked with presenting and defending their work during peer review.  All important skills to develop before heading off to the university.IMG_1753

About kristylundstrom

I currently work as Head at Viktor Rydberg Gymnasium in Djursholm. I am a student of learning. I am interested to see where it happens, when it happens, and how it happens. I am also a math and computer science teacher. I have lived in Belgium and in the USA. I really appreciate my multi-cultural environment - I believe it adds dynamics to our school.
