During this capstone project I referred to the 21st Century Standards Framework which align with the Common Core Standards in order for students to achieve college and career readiness. Communication and collaboration go hand in hand because one cannot exist without the other. Students need to communicate in order to collaborate.
Articulate thoughts and ideas effectively using oral, written and nonverbal communication skills in a variety of forms and contexts
Listen effectively to decipher meaning, including knowledge, values, attitudes and intentions
Use communication for a range of purposes (e.g. to inform, instruct, motivate and persuade)
Utilize multiple media and technologies, and know how to judge their effectiveness a priori as well as assess their impact
Communicate effectively in diverse environments (including multi-lingual)
Collaborate with Others
Demonstrate ability to work effectively and respectfully with diverse teams
Exercise flexibility and willingness to be helpful in making necessary compromises to accomplish a common goal
Assume shared responsibility for collaborative work, and value the individual contributions made by each team member

SL.2.1.a Follow agreed-upon rules for discussions (e.g., gaining the floor in respectful ways, listening to others with care, speaking one at a time about the topics and texts under discussion).
