Student Portfolio Metamorphosis
English Program requires students to work on their portfolios. It is the purposeful collection of student work that has been selected and organized to show student learning progress (developmental
portfolio) or to show samples of student’s best work (showcase portfolio).
Goals of this requirement are as follows:
- 1. To give students the opportunity to reflect on their growth over a period of time.
- 2. To use as a basis for assigning grades (based on effort).
- 3. To use as a basis for communication with parents or as placement/entrance requirements.
- 4. To enhance student learning (little emphasis on content, more emphasis on student reflection).
