5/15-18 Portfolio Work

Today we’ll begin our Portfolio Work. Essentially, you’ll be revising your work and putting together a slide show about it that you’ll present to our class. The rubric (how it will be graded) is attached in the link I’ve posted, so read carefully!

Tuesday I’ll offer you a sample portfolio and presentation for the reflective portfolio AND for the publication portfolio.

I’ll also offer you a list of common strengths/weaknesses/commonalities to use if you’re writing the reflective portfolio.

5/10-12 – Literary Citizenship

Before we move on to revisions and portfolios, we’re going to take a few days to talk about the Three R’s of literary citizenship.  You’ll have an assignment for each “R,” and that assignment is detailed on the slideshow I’ve linked.

Wednesday: We’ll discuss a rationale for citizenship and focus on the first R: Reading.

Thursday: We’ll talk about the second R: Relationships

Friday: We’ll talk about the third R: Recommending & Reviewing.
