I am elementary, so I am totally out of my realm with this question. Is the norm to do a term paper in 11th grade as well as 12th? It used to be a "senior" project. Just wondering if this is another "sign of the times"-everything is being pushed back, or if it is common. As early childhood, I witness how kindergarten is now first grade and so on. Just wondering if it is the same all the way up.
