Here is our IB Overview Presentation from our recent GOHS Spring Showcase. Thanks to all of you who came seeking the information. If you were unable to make it, this offers a broad overview of the program itself as well as suggesting curricular choices at GOHS for 9th and 10th graders.

If you have any available time, we could definitely use your help as a volunteer proctor for AP or IB testing this May. By using volunteers, we are able to save money to purchase extra supplies and such; However, one of the most powerful parts of the process is the positive attitude our parents bring with them to the exams. Last year they were happy, willing participants in the process, and that makes the testing environment amazing!
Who can proctor? Anyone 18 or older who can commit to the time slot will work. That includes alumnae, grandparents, cousins, parents, older brothers and sisters, service groups, etc. There will also be certificated staff present, so the role is primarily helping to distribute materials, monitor and assist students, and collect materials. One of our proctors last year sent me an email stating:
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to help. It was inspiring to see the students working so hard and finishing the AP course. Let me know if you need any help next year.
I am attaching two live links so you can see what is still open in real time! We will also host a proctor meeting in April, so don't worry that you don't know what to do. It is really easy and we can help.
Thanks so much. If you would like to sign up for a spot, or talk about any of this, please contact January King at email@example.com, or Deeann Treto at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attached is the IB course catalog for 2017-2018. Please use it to help you choose your courses and to access necessary info about the IB courses offered at GOHS.
By this point \you should have been able to hand in a rough draft to your supervisor. If you haven't done so, be sure to set up a appointment to meet with the supervisor to get feedback on your rough, so you can proceed working on your final. A final rough must be turned in by the end of September, at which time the EE supervisors will be given the rubric (link on the right of this page), and the score they give you will weigh heavily into your TOK grade under writing.
When reviewing your paper, it is imperative that both you and your supervisor use the rubric in order to assess your success on each section of it. I have uploaded rubrics for each area. Please print out one for yourself and one for your supervisor. A good activity is for both of you to score the paper using te rubric and then come together to talk it over.
I am having a supervisor meeting next week, and there are extra copies of subject guides, EE guides, etc., in the filing cabinet outside my office! Let me know of anything else you might need, okay?
