Global Studies Academy Community Capstone Project
Students enrolled in the Global Studies Academy are required to complete a Community Capstone Project during either their junior or senior year. Students are allowed to choose a topic of their choice for their project. The project must be action-based and address a community problem or concern. The project must be approved by the Global Studies Academy coordinator. The project should demonstrate the following skills: critical thinking, problem solving, research ability, and effective communication ability.
Capstone Project Process
- Identify a core question that addresses a problem or concern within the community.
- Conduct thorough research that pertains to the problem or concern.
- Create a project that attempts to solve the problem or address the concern.
- Present the project to the school community.
*Regular meetings with the Global Studies Academy coordinator are an important part of the Capstone Project. The GSA coordinator will serve as mentor for the project.
