|This book guides students in the production of a portfolio to help meet the requirements for a class assignment, culminating project, or graduation. The author of this student-centered book combines his previous expertise in helping students identify their interests and talents in careers, leisure, learning, and community service. The workbook contains dozens of examples illustrating what can go in a portfolio: letters of recommendation, computer disks, database print outs, graded assignments from various classes awards, report cards, membership certificates, attendance records, excerpts from video tapes, plan sheets for community service, photos, news clips, journal entries, music recordings, career test print outs (to name a few). The books also suggest the various ways one might use a portfolio: in job seeking, for college applications and classes, appendage to a grant, small business, record of independent study or projects, completion of class or school requirements, applying for loan applications, tech-prep linkages, a tool to chronicle personal growth, etc.||
Various inventories help identify "proud moments" which guide the student in selecting portfolio samples. Vocabulary lists assist students in identifying words that describe the skills and character traits associated with these proud moments. The Weekly Portfolio Log cultivates the habit or discipline of archiving samples for the portfolio. Various outlining models can be used for organizing the portfolio samples (thematic, chronological, skills-based). The final chapter guides the student in creating front matter (table of contents and acknowledgments), back matter (self-evaluation of the portfolio), and planning an oral presentation. While the workbook is written for the secondary age population, it could be easily adapted upwards and downwards in age. The work is approximately 100 pages and is supported by a complete teacher's guide.
