For the next two weeks, you’ll be working on your portfolio assignment.  It’s in your Creative Writing Handbook, but the attached portfolio assignment sheet and rubric is also available for you.

In a nutshell, these two weeks are for:

  1. Revising your pieces
  2. Reflecting on your writing process (strengths, weaknesses, style)
  3. Pulling your revisions and reflections into a portfolio presentation.

If you’re ready, you can sign up for a presentation slot here.

Often times, students need an example of what this might look like.  Using mostly student works from this class, I’ve created a sample portfolio for an imaginary student named Jane Smith.  We’ll look at it together in class, and I’ll “present it” for you so you can get a sense of what an A+ Presentation would be.  But it will also be available as a resource for you here: Portfolio Sample.

And here are some sample creative pieces as well:
