K-12 Culminating Capstones: End-of-Year Projects for Distance Learning Success Webinar

With the COVID-19 pandemic, school buildings across the country closed, and teaching and learning shifted almost overnight to being done remotely. Join the AFT and Share My Lesson to learn about a positive way you can help K-12 students wrap up the current school year on a positive note: Culminating Capstone Projects. Keeping in mind many students’ limited access to technology, you can use these newly designed capstone lessons from the AFT to help students demonstrate their learning during this unprecedented interruption in schooling.

A cadre of preK-12 AFT members from across the nation jointly designed standards-based, integrated content, offering capstone project ideas that are grade-level and developmentally appropriate. These projects 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 utilized to wrap up the school year, be used to complete a voluntary summer learning program, or even serve as a re-entry into the next school year—whenever that happens. Teachers can adapt and modify the capstone project ideas, making them unique for their classrooms. All of the necessary resources have been provided (e.g., hyperlinks, activity sheets, question prompts, etc.) to make them easy to use. Most of all, we want students to feel good about all they know!

Get ideas on how to use the capstone projects for any grade level and for students with any type of access (or no access) to technology. Here are the themes for each grade band:

Available for one-hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval.

I enjoyed receiving project ideas that could be used across the curriculum with my colleagues for end of or beginning of the year projects.

This gave an overview of some really good projects to close out the year...or to introduce at the beginning for themes in a PBL setting.
