Process Journal (you create)

What is the Process Journal? (See Guide for description)

  • You've used journals throughout your academic career. Now it's your turn to do it without teachers guiding you.
  • Most successful teams create, record and share ideas, resources, project developments in a shared document easily accessible by everyone and advisor, IB coordinator (ie. shared Google.doc)
  • Here are some suggestions based on the experience of successful teams:
    • Keep one team Process Journal (see instructions in Guide)
    • Organize by color or person
      • Record work as a team in a specific color
      • Assign each person a different color or create a separate task list for each person
    • For example
      • Create a table or check-off to-do list of planned activities (black color)
      • Sally may be assigned green
      • Matt may be assigned red
        • as Sally completes the to-do list activities
          • she changes the activity to green and/or
          • checks it off and/or
          • enters her name and time spent on the activity
        • as Matt completes activities he does the same thing in red
