CAPSTONE INFORMATION

CAPSTONE PRESENTATION ELEMENTS DONE: May 7th
CAPSTONE PRESENTATIONS: May 16

Capstone is in the process of changing to a portfolio format.  Your papers will still fulfill most of the requirements of this portfolio. However, you will need to write reflection responses to defend how your paper meets the "21st Century Competencies" linked below.  You will defend your paper to a mentor assigned to you through your academy, probably around the middle of May. 

You papers likely will meet five of the the six criteria.  One, however is "Citizenship and Responsibility". It might happen that your paper is about a social cause, but if not, you can use one of your community service experiences or another project you might have done, completely separate from your academic paper, to fulfill this Competency.  

If you have separate papers or projects that you have completed in the course of your Wilbur Cross High School years, and you would prefer to use these instead of one  academic paper, these can be applied to the new portfolio CAPSTONE presentation.  

See "Capstone Reflection Rubrics" link for more detailed information.
