The type of Capstone Project to be completed is determined by your educator role as follows:

Teachers are to develop a curriculum unit or units that address their Standard Course of Study and develop their students' global awareness by embedding opportunities to investigate, frame and analyze issues of global significance. Here are a few links to resources to assist you in the development and evaluation of your unit or units. Note: "Unit" implies more than one lesson. Check with your district on what defines a curriculum unit.

Central Office Staff may develop a curriculum unit or units as described under the Teachers, or they may develop professional development in order to build district capacity for developing global awareness.

Principals and LEA Superintendents are to develop a Leadership Brief that describes the process utilized at building/district level to support and sustain staff efforts in development of student global awareness.
