Senior Capstone Projects
Every icta Senior will complete a Senior Capstone Project.
A Senior Capstone Project is a student-led performance or presentation of a product where students provide evidence of application of core content, and growth in their development of the lifelong learning competencies and career/college readiness.
Building Blocks of a Capstone Project
Peer Consultations - Students organize a group of peers to present their learning for feedback and revision. This is typically done at milestones within a project.
Student Led Conferences - Students present their learning to their parent/guardian.
Exhibition - Student project exhibitions showcase final stages of work to peers, staff, and community members.
Capstone Project Components
While planning and designing their Senior Capstone Project icta students are consulting with staff to include the following components:
- Evidence of growth in the lifelong learning competencies.
- Work or community based learning experience.
- A reflection of the overall experience.
- Presentation/Defense of learning to a panel selected by the student consisting of community members, staff, and students.
