AFT’s Culminating Capstone Projects
AFT’s Culminating Capstone Projects are a way for students to demonstrate what they have learned in innovative, meaningful ways. A cadre of preK-12 AFT teachers from across the nation designed a set of standards-based and developmentally appropriate projects that will enable students to demonstrate learning in a variety of ways such as writing a story or song, scrapbooking and counting objects in the home. These capstone projects can be used to wrap up the school year, to complete a voluntary summer learning program, or even serve as a re-entry into the next school year. Teachers can adapt and modify the projects, tailoring them for their classrooms. All of the necessary resources are provided (e.g., hyperlinks, activity sheets, question prompts, etc.).
