a project plan
it is helpful to make a written project plan; sometimes it
is even required. Here is an example of a project plan that
you might find useful because:
is half done!
not have to answer to every detail, select the parts relevant
to your work!
PLAN (for groupwork)
Name of the project:
Authors of the plan:
of the project (from the definition phase)
Why have we chosen this topic?
What do we know about the problem already?
What are our research problems? What do we want to find out
Our hypothesis/a working theory about our study?
Who are participating in the project?
What are the responsibilities of each participant? (Might
be difficult to define sometimes!)
Set up dates for different phases of the project:
Here there has to be some way to graphically show that these
phases are iterative
information from different sources
What is the outcome? A research report, www-pages, play, song
How is the process/product evaluated?
How is it presented?
How do you plan to work with your topic?
Each member of the group will first search for information
on the use of nuclear power ie familiarize themselves
with our chosen subject on their own. At some stage the
geography group will go to the library in Tikkurila to
look for more information while the librarian helps as
best s/he can. When we feel that we have combed through
the library's reserves for a few times we will go on to
look for information on the Internet. Based on the jointly
accumulated material, we will independently do our share
of the work. Finally we will get together in the school's
computer classroom and join the parts together to form
common problem in project work is delaying!
The longer you wait before you start the less time you have
left to finish your work.
And the less time you have the poorer the result is going
And the poorer the result the worse the feedback.
And the worse the feedback the less you want to get involved
with another problem solving project.
circle! The more satisfied you are with your work the more
you enjoy learning and the better learner you will get.
will you initiate working: will you get straight to work
or will you make excuses to delay starting. What excuses?
We will start working immediately and assign each member
a task of their own!.
