The Essence of the Portfolio
They will be able to pinpoint where they started off in (reading, writing, and oral), areas they have improved, and areas that are still in need of improvement. Students will then be able to create an action plan, in conjunction with their teacher (and possibly parents) to attain improvement.
Students will also be able to track their interests, highlight tasks they really liked, and those they have little interest in; ultimately tracking their growth over the year.
Students should be able to adequately self-assess, peer assess, and have deeper knowledge and understanding of the importance and use of literacy.
