Junior Exhibitions
Monday, March 16, 2015 

It’s Junior Exhibition time again!  This year’s Juniors are presenting on topics as diverse as  “The Superstitions of Sailors” to “Sensory Isolation Treatment” and “Learning to be Empathetic”.  For a full list of topics, please click here.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with TSA’s Junior Exhibition process, here’s a primer:

TSA students are required to complete and present two exhibitions, one in each their junior and senior years. Exhibitions prepare our students for life beyond high school by encouraging students to work independently, think creatively, synthesize information from a variety of sources, research complex topics and confidently present to an audience. In addition, exhibitions allow students to research deeply into a subject about which they are passionate.  In effect, students get to design (and subsequently teach) their own course in the topic of their choosing.

Exhibitions contain a written, visual and oral component. Assessment is based on all written material as well as the knowledge and skill demonstrated in an oral presentation. Exhibition topics are chosen by the students with guidance from the faculty. Presentations are given before an audience of faculty, peers and community members.

 Please join us in wishing our Juniors well on their exhibitions!
