Master Discourse Project

The Master Discourse Project (MDP) is an interdisciplinary project undertaken by Grade 12 students. With their Toastmaster training that takes place throughout the year, students define topics linking content from Philosophy with at least one other course.

These students undergo what is comparable to a thesis at the high school level. Throughout this project, they've developed:

Critical Thinking Skills

Research Skills

Analytical Skills

Writing Skills

Presentation Skills

"I enjoyed reading them all, and consider their general rhetorical rigour and reflection of a college-level capacity for research, a tribute to Hawthorn's superior educational standards."
