Carol Porter and Janell Cleland have been teaching junior high and high school English and reading for over fifteen years. Their six years of collaboration at Mundelein High School have allowed them to realize the power of sharing stories and practices to become more effective teachers and to grow professionally. The Portfolio as a Learning Strategy is Porter and Cleland's chronicle of three years of experimentation with portfolios in their classroom. Their portrayal is honest, including accounts not just of their successes, but also of their mistakes--both of which allowed them to learn with their students as they discovered the value of portfolios as a tool for reflection.
Each chapter focuses on one of the most frequently asked questions about the use of portfolios, including:
- Why do we need portfolios?
- How can portfolios be used to support learning?
- What should go into a portfolio?
- How can the portfolio be assembled?
- The portfolio is complete: now what?
- What are other teacher concerns about portfolios?
More than just a commentary on the use of portfolios, this text also provides an in-depth look at the curricular and instructional framework of a student-centered classroom. Learning strategies are described in detail and illustrated with student samples, demonstrating how portfolios can assist students in reflective self-evaluation.
