A poster to highlight the new Common Core Capacities. This one focuses on the Comprehend & Critique capacity, which states:
"Students are engaged and open-minded—but discerning—readers and listeners. They work diligently to understand precisely what an author or speaker is saying, but they also question an author’s or speaker’s assumptions and premises and assess the veracity of claims and the soundness of reasoning."
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.
