Learn the terminology and methodology associated with the construction and use of portfolios in the classroom. Portfolios can serve as a tool to evaluate coursework quality, assess student progress and academic achievement. Assignments explore the use of portfolios for instruction, assessment, motivation, reflection, accountability, communication, collaboration and research. Portfolios are ideal for parent-teacher conferences and displaying curriculum content to administrators. The portfolio process is demonstrated and practiced by readings, workbook exercises, exam and the creation of your own course portfolio. Portfolios can enhance professional development and serve to document use of national and state curriculum standards.
