Capstone Project Title

As technology and society evolve, so do the modes and practices of communication. The teacher resources and classroom activities presented within this capstone project focus on the combination of Minnesota’s English Language Arts (ELA) and College and Career Readiness (CCR) standards to develop future-ready classroom curricula and activities. Through the creation of an asynchronous professional resource for educators, this project works to highlight key tenets of modern communication, skills students will need in their futures, and showcase how these skills can look in the classroom. With research focusing on academic standards, employability skills, and classroom curriculum and instruction, the goal of this work is to empower educators to review their own classroom practices and how they are serving students, as well as present tangible resources educators can bring to their own practice. While designed specifically for secondary ELA classrooms in Minnesota, the resources and concepts presented could be adapted to many educational settings.
