Senior Projects Class of 2013

Since 1999, Kekaulike High School has participated in an ever evolving Senior capstone assignment. In its current form, the integrated Senior Project, students are given the opportunity to showcase all that they have learned in twelve years of school with a project that challenges their abilities, stretches their limitations, and culminates in a rewarding final activity to their high school careers. 

The Senior Project consists of four components: Product, Paper, Portfolio, and Presentation. The first step in the process is deciding on a topic for the Project and a commitment to a tangible Product that the student will complete. This leads to a research Paper on the topic, an on-line Portfolio about what the student has learned and experienced during the process, and a PowerPoint Presentation of their Senior Project to a community panel of adults. Students will be working on these components in their senior Social Studies and English classes, with on-campus mentors, and on their own time outside of school.

The Kekaulike Senior Project affords students the ability to demonstrate their proficiency in the General Learner Outcomes (GLOs), personal responsibility and life skills, and career and college readiness while showcasing their individual talents and passions.

  • Practice Presentation Recap Overall you guys did a great job last Friday. With a little refining of your slides and some practice I think you will all do well on March 13. To this point, Mr. Arcas has offered some good suggestions. First, let's not us the word "procrastinate" anywhere on our slides. It doesn't have the professional tone we're looking for. Instead, use "Time Management", and then explain that you didn't use your time wisely and needed better organization and planning. Second, Mr. Arcas has offered his time to help any seniors that want some advice on their presentations and oral speaking skills. Please click the link below to see when he is available. Thank you Mr. Arcas ...

  • Friday, February 20!!! This Friday is a VERY important day for you to be in school and ready for your practice presentations. Teachers around campus have signed up for you to come into their classrooms, and they have made room in their curriculum to allow you this opportunity. Not presenting on Friday is a big inconvenience for them and very disrespectful of their time. Please make sure you are in school, on time to your Social Studies class, and ready to present. You do not need to wear anything special, but make sure you are in Kekaulike dress code. If you haven't already submitted your Slides Presentation, here's the link.Make Mrs. Spalding, Ms. Bien, Ms. Kiili, and I proud on ...

  • Product Grading #2 Seniors, great job last week. All the teachers were impressed by how many of you did a wonderful job with your products. You also impressed us with how detailed so many of you were with collecting and presenting the evidence of your time spent. We were so proud of how so many of you took this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others around Maui. It really goes a long way in helping Kekaulike have a positive image in the community. For those of you in recovery (a smaller number than past years, way to go 2015), complete the tasks assigned as quickly as possible so you can be on the road to passing. We start working ...
