Personal Interest Projects to Boost Success and Creativity

Personal Interest Projects

As we approach the culmination of our personal interest project, it’s time to reflect on the journey we’ve embarked upon and bring our visions to life. Over the next two to three class periods, students will have the opportunity to complete their projects, integrating their personal passions with academic subjects. This phase involves expressing unique interests, applying knowledge, and sharing discoveries with others. Let’s dive into the final steps of this educational adventure, showcasing their hard work and creativity. This is the culminating activity for the “Positive Attitude Towards Learning” unit.

Learning Goals

  • I will be able to complete my personal interest project by integrating my passions with relevant academic subjects.
  • I will be able to reflect on the learning process and articulate how my project connects my personal interests with academic learning.
  • I will be able to present my project effectively, sharing my journey, findings, and the knowledge gained through this unique learning experience.



  1. If you are unfamiliar with this project, you can begin with the “Fusing Passions and Academic Excellence” page.
  2. Hand back the Project Proposal outline to students, if you haven’t already done so.
  3. Give 1 or 2 periods (or more, if you need to!) for students to complete their projects. Each project may be considerably different, so it’s important to circulate and support students.
  4. When completed, ask students to present their projects to the class. This could be a formal or informal presentation.
