A poster to highlight the new Common Core Capacities. This one focuses on the Build Strong Content Knowledge capacity, which states:
"Students establish a base of knowledge across a wide range of subject matter by engaging with works of quality and substance. They become proficient in new areas through research and study. They read purposefully and listen attentively to gain both general knowledge and discipline-specific expertise. They refine and share their knowledge through writing and speaking."
Possible classroom uses:
1. Post on wall throughout the year to refer to and remind students of their goals in all their subjects. Would also bring to the attention of administrators that students are aware of overarching goals.
2. Use one at time and build a wall portfolio around the specific capacity with student projects that demonstrate a particular skill. For instance, use the Perspectives poster to showcase cultural essays or debate topics.
This is a Hi-Res JPEG file that can be printed at 18x24, 16x20, or 8.5x11. Please note: Computers like to automatically put white borders around .jpeg and .pdf files for printing. If you don't want the white border, it can be turned off in the Printing prompt. In addition, you may print this on 11 x 17 and trim the excess off the top and bottom. Any questions, please send a message through TPT.
