Secondary career and technical education (CTE) students are faced with the unique challenge of learning not only specific content-related knowledge and skills, but also postsecondary preparation, 21st century technology, employability and self-marketing skills. At Cass Career Center in Harrisonville, Missouri, a senior capstone project was developed by the school's health sciences and English instructors to give students knowledge and skills across the two curricula. The project is implemented as a set of living documents housed in a 3-D digital portfolio that displays student effort and achievement and meets high school graduation guidelines set forth by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (MODESE).
