Final Portfolio

undefined

undefined

What is a portfolio? Why am I doing this?

undefined

undefined

In a nutshell, a portfolio is a collection of your “greatest hits.” For this class, you will choose two essays completed this semester and write a memo to accompany them. You will also need to provide evidence of revision for each project and reflect on how they represent personal progress toward course learning outcomes. The purpose for completing this portfolio is to give you an opportunity to reflect on what you’ve learned this semester.

undefined

What do I need to include in my portfolio?

undefined

There are four main components:

undefined

  • Two writing projects. You may choose from Projects #1, Project #2, Annotated Bibliography, and Project #3. To determine which two pieces to include, it makes sense to consider the grades you earned. However, I encourage you to look beyond grades to also consider which pieces represent the most learning or most memorable learning experience. Did you struggle to master particular concepts? Did one of your projects take an unexpected turn during drafting/completion? If so, describing the journey or process for completing these projects requires deep critical thinking and lends itself to a thoughtful and interesting memo. No matter which projects you choose, make sure they reflect your growth as a writer. Lastly, make sure you include polished, revised copies of your projects that are free from comments or mark ups.
  • Appendix. This is the portion of your portfolio that includes evidence of revision for the two essays you have chosen to include. Anything that you believe represents the stages of development or deliberate revision of your project can be included. This may include but is not limited to freewrites, activities you completed for participation points, either in class or online, and rough drafts, including peer review feedback.

undefined

  • Memo (see attached rubric). After you’ve decided which projects to include in your portfolio, you will craft a 1 to 2-page, single-spaced memo that begins by explaining why you chose to include these two pieces in your portfolio. You will also describe how completing these projects has helped you master the eight learning outcomes for the course. It is up to you to determine how to organize the content in a manner that will make sense to the reader. Additionally, please address your memo in the following manner: To the ENG 2322 Portfolio Assessment Committee.

How should I format my portfolio and how long should it be?

undefined

undefined

Portfolios will vary in length depending on the projects chosen for inclusion; however, all components of your portfolio should be combined into one document. Please assemble your portfolio as follows:

undefined

  • Memo
  • First selected piece
  • Second selected piece
  • Appendix
    • Evidence of revision for first selected piece
    • Evidence of revision for second selected piece
