The WIP Benchmark has kicked off for the 2018-2019 school year!


    What is the World Issues Project?

    The sophomore benchmark is a project in which each group must research a country of the world, write two full-process essays, and deliver a persuasive presentation on a social issue faced by their assigned nation. At the end of the 10th grade, Irvington High expects all students to be familiar with the following:
    • Modern Language Association (MLA) standards for research and writing formats
    • Correct spelling and grammar
    • Library research
    • Use of the Internet for research
    • Word processing/Typing
    • A five paragraph descriptive essay
    • A well-reasoned persuasive essay
    • Oral presentation skills
    • Students must also demonstrate their progress in meeting the School Wide Outcomes throughout the benchmark process.
