The purpose of the action plan is for you to organize and outline each step necessary to complete each part of the process in order to meet your goal. Using a calendar is very helpful to backward plan from important due dates.

One of the things your Action plan should include is your research plan. Students should select relevant and reliable information from a variety of sources to develop the MYP project. The number and type of resources will vary depending upon the nature of the project; however, to reach the highest achievement levels through investigating, students must select a range of sources and a variety of source types. Students’ ability to evaluate the reliability of sources should be evident. Students should consider factors such as credibility of the author, currency, accuracy, relevance, intended audience and objectivity of the source. You will complete a separate chart(see documents below) for each source in your research. Criterion A measures your use of a wide variety of relevant sources for your topic.
