First official meeting: What should you bring to that meeting?

How should you arrange that meeting?

It is highly advisable for you (the student) to be proactive and request a meeting with your supervisor (avoid them having to chase you)

Dear (Mr./Ms/They LASTNAME HERE)

My name is, (YOUR NAME HERE), and you have been designated as my Extended Essay Supervisor. I am looking forward to working with you and sharing ideas. I would like to let you know that while I know that our Research Questions are not set in stone yet, however I do have some preliminary ideas and I have done a bit of work on this question. "PUT YOUR CURRENT RESEARCH QUESTION HERE". Additionally I have completed a Research Proposal and Annotated bibliography (add a link to the doc), and started to work on a Reflection Journal  (add a link to the doc).  We are all very busy, however I am hoping we can manage to come together for our 1st Meeting soon.  Ideally, we would need about 20-30 minutes for this first meeting. I would like to suggest some times and locations we might be able to meet:

If none of these dates work for you please let me know and send me a date, time, and location that will work for you. Thank you for your time and consideration.
