Assignment - Capstone Proposal
The Project Proposal
Developing Your Idea
The first step is to create a proposal that connects your interests, passions and goals during your time at school, that lead to a potential career path or character talent. You must be able to research your proposal. It must be related to your career path or special talent and be readily usable for a project. Consider the following questions to guide you in the development of your proposal:
It is useful to begin with what you know something about. Consider your response to the following:
- What activities or interests are you actively engaged in that you would like to learn more about?
- What subject areas in school are most interesting to you? Why?
- What issues in your local community, at the national level, or in the world are you most concerned about?
- What skills do you possess that you would like to increase with more experience and with an adult mentor's practical advice?
- What area of work would you be most most interested and passionate about pursuing?
- Reflecting on your past where do you want to go?
- How will you get there?
Using the material above write a thoughtful proposal. Your proposal can be an essay of 250 words, an outline using point form, a mind-map, or other types of brain writing activity. Remember that your topic must be connected to knowledge and skills acquired during your high school years through courses, practical experiences in and outside of school, and other school experiences. Connect these experiences to your Learning Journey Project. This proposal is submitted to your school facilitator for approval.
