The 2002 home school special project is designed to be a lifetime
experience and will develop significant personal knowledge about a
subject while reinforcing the discipline and attention to detail that
is required in the adult world.
The special project will involve at least 4 deliverables on a single
subject of Jesse's choice over a six month period. The first is a
presentation of general information on the subject, intended for an
intelligent person that possess no knowledge of the subject. The
second will pursue some aspect of the subject in medium detail. The
third is the major deliverable and should be impressive in scope,
size, and detail. It should include original thinking and delivery.
The fourth is a drill-down exercise, and should be selected after
stage two is complete. It should expound or apply some aspect of the
subject, while also going off in a new direction.
Each portion of the project is due on the Friday of that week at 4
PM. Verbal presentations are STRONGLY discouraged unless in the form
of video tape or digital streaming.
