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.
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.
