November 2015
[please make a copy of this document and complete it prior to your project tuning]

Elevator Speech

Hi my name is Daniela, a 12th grade student from High Tech High Chula Vista and I want to share a
powerful project idea with you. I really enjoy working with elderly people, and bringing joy to their life. My
brother and I recently started a Drum-Dance Circle program at AtivCare Rolling Hills Ranch Alzheimers
Facility, where we play instruments, music, and dance with the patients. Music helps Dementia patients
recall memories from their past and it's a way for them to have fun. Not only do we want to inform more
people about the benefits that Dementia patients get from music; we also want to reach out to more kids,
so they can implement similar programs into other facilities. It is our hope that this program will be
spread throughout facilities and that many Dementia patients will get to experience the power of music. I
would appreciate thoughts on how I might achieve my goals. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Essential Question
How can we affect more people with the power of music?

Product: What are you going to create? Who is it for

and why might they want it? Note: a product isnt
necessarily just a physical entity. It could be a film, an
event, or just about anything.
We are going to spread awareness about our project through the
media and presentations to students at different schools. Also
spread our program to other facilities, and have other students
keep those programs going.

Learning Goals: Please note that by doing this

project you will learn things you did not anticipate...thats
great! Additionally, your learning goals may evolve over
time. Nevertheless, it is important to set some learning
goals up front in order to point yourself in a productive
