This year for the first time, our Capitol Hill High School will host a Junior Thesis presentation night! On Wednesday, May 18 from 5:30-7:30pm, 11th grade scholars will present and defend their own theses. The Junior Thesis is the culminating Quarter 4 task for both History and English: In History class, students have written a research paper about a social movement or event of their choice, and in English, they have created a presentation defending their thesis. We hope that this event will prepare our scholars for their senior Thesis course, especially as this will be an opportunity for students to receive, and implement, feedback from judge panelists as they continue to improve as speakers, readers, writers, and critical thinkers.
We are looking for a panel of judges who will provide critical feedback to our 11th grade students, and you are someone whose expertise we believe would be critical to the success of this event. If you are interested in volunteering to serve on a panel of judges that will evaluate and provide feedback for our 11th grade scholars on Wednesday, May 18, please fill out our Junior Thesis Volunteer Interest Form.
