22 seniors receive commemorative bound copies of IB Extended Essays
The seniors in the IB Extended Essay program received official bound copies of their work in Morning Meeting on Friday, April 29. Two copies of each essay were published — one for the student and one for the school to keep on display for posterity.
The Extended Essay is a component of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. In no fewer than 4,000 words, students complete an independent, self-directed piece of research, akin to a college-level thesis.
“The Extended Essay is such a unique learning opportunity — one that is open to all Trinity students,” said Head of School Rob Short. “By doing original, independent research and sharing their published findings with the world, students learn to think and write creatively and critically. It is a rich process that prepares them so well for college and beyond.”
