A set of posters that highlight the new Common Core Capacities. While not standards themselves, the capacities give an overarching idea of the skills needed for students to be college ready. These are skills that are applied and developed throughout their school career and across all the standards. Specific info on each capacity can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/nu9dlq2
These are Hi-Res JPEG files that can be printed at 18x24, 16x20, or 8.5x11.
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.
