       After you select a topic, you will want to develop a project that relates
to it. The project is a narrower focus than the broad topic itself. In fact, the
biggest mistake seniors make is choosing a project topic that is too

      After you choose your topic and area of interest, it will be helpful for
you to brainstorm specific projects. For example, a student who chooses
“ballet” as a topic could use any of the following projects: choreograph a
new piece, teach a ballet class for several weeks, critique and review
professional performances, interview and job shadow dance studio owners,
or design a brochure or ad campaign for a dance studio. As you can see,
the options are endless!
