What is Senior Bridges?

    Seniors:  Would you like to design What, Where, When and How you study in the last semester of your senior 
    year? Senior Bridges  might offer you many possibilities:
  • Cross-Discipline Work:  Research, design and build a solar car, a totem pole, a graphic novel, an Elizabethan costume, a live-in Geodesic Dome, a computer language.  Earn a pilot’s license.  Help the police solve a crime.  Teach conflict resolution in Kindergarten.  What interests you????

  • Course Credits: Depending on your project, you might be eligible for .5 to 3.5 credits.

  • Community involvement: Find a community expert for your mentor and glean as much knowledge as you can. Complete that philanthropic project you've always imagined.

Senior Bridges Interdisciplinary Project:


    The Senior Bridges Interdisciplinary Project is an opportunity for second semester seniors to work on an 

    intensive project of their own choosing. Seniors are invited to engage in independent study projects in any 

    subject area(s) extending beyond the boundaries of our current curriculum. Although projects can be in any area 

    of student interest, each will require that the student research the topic, work with a community mentor, write 

    a substantial amount, create a tangible project illustrating what was learned/accomplished, and prepare a 

    presentation about the topic for a class or panel of community members, students, and teachers. Credit areas 

    and course hour commitments will be determined on an individual basis, depending upon the scope of the project 

    as defined by students in their application forms.


    The process:


    Senior Bridges Project at Hanover High involves three phases and many skills:


    The Paper: Acquisition of knowledge. The student learns about a topic by observing, researching, 

    interviewing and writing.


    The Project: Application of knowledge. With the help of a community mentor and a teacher-advisor, the 

    student participates in a project—resulting in a tangible product or an experience, or both.


    The Presentation: Synthesis of knowledge. The student presents findings to an HHS class or to a panel consisting of 

    the community members, teachers, and students.
