Each semester, you will create and maintain a digital semester portfolio. Everything you create in class - Reader's & Writer's Digital Notebook, reflection papers, thesis-based research papers, multi-genre papres, essay test responses, kiosk presentations, digital story poetry performances, podcast performances, rough drafts, final drafts, revisions- will be included in your portfolio.
This will offer you the opportunity to set personal academic goals, track your progress and reflect on the development of your skills.
Create a Site for Your Portfolio
Your portfolio is essentially a Google Site. This will allow you to interact and present the contents of your course folder. In this context, you will set goals for the semester, reflect on your progress and demonstrate competency. This will be your final summative assessment for the semester. To create your site, follow these directions.

Set Some Goals...
After you have created your course folders and digital portfolio, it's time to review the competencies and set some personal goals for the semester.
Part III Directions
As the semester comes to a close, complete your self-evaluation. To complete the self-evaluation write your response in the spaces indicated on each portfolio page. Your response should include a reflection on your work this semester. Let your reader know where you have experienced growth and where you'd like to continue to improve in each area.
Lastly, make sure that your course folders are complete and the contents of each folder accurately reflect your work this semester. Through this portfolio and the work reflected in it, you will demonstrate competency in Reading, Writing, Research, Listening/Speaking/Viewing and Technology. Your portfolio is your final summative assessment of the semester.
