Writing Portfolio

The portfolio/self-evaluation provides an opportunity for you to reflect on your progress over the course of the semester, and to showcase the work that best indicates your progress.

You will turn in a folder that includes:
One one-pager and one annotated bibliography that best represent your writing and analytical skills
All three essays with my original comments and grading sheet.
(Optional) A rewrite of any of the previous three essays for an improved grade. Keep in mind that the essay should be reexamined for content, not just technical errors.
A one to two-page, type-written self-evaluation (explained below)

Your self-evaluation will include:
· A rationale for why you chose to include these particular work samples.
· A reflection on the semester and evaluation of yourself as a student in this class. Here are some suggested questions to help guide you: What have you learned as a writer? What have you learned as a reader? What was your role in learning (active? passive?)? What are you proud of? What would you have done differently?

If you would like your portfolio returned, please provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope with correct postage. I will not provide additional postage if you provide insufficient postage.

Due: 5/16
