Senior Oral Defense

One of the requirements for our HRA seniors is to write a senior thesis.  Topics are chosen by the students, and they work with a teacher adviser all year with the goal of researching, supporting, and writing a paper for their topic.  In addition to a written thesis, they are also required to deliver a condensed oral defense before peers, teachers and guests.  Part of the presentation includes a question and answer session from a panel of teachers.

This is one of the crowning moments for our seniors, and it is encouraging to see the product of the work that they have done throughout the year and the development of the rhetoric skills that have been a part of their education at HRA.  We invite you to attend and see just a piece of what a classically educated student can deliver.
