Here are some examples of adequate project outcomes:
Hold an assembly / fundraiser at school, and give volunteer hours to help a local charity doing
work in the area of study your group has chosen
You will need to record notes about your time spent working on the Project with your group. This will
be very important for you to have when you finish the project and are asked to do a personal
reflectionon what you contributed and what you think about the project. The best way to keep this log
is on a word document in your GP folder on your laptop, but be sure to save it in another place in case
your computer crashed or you lose it. Comlete this information after each time your group meets. For
yor convenience, you may copy and paste the chart below repeatedly into a word document and save it
as GP group Project Log.
