Portfolio entry template

As you develop a learner portfolio, it is important for each entry to reflect the purpose of the entire portfolio, namely to make learning visible. The previous page introduces a portfolio rubric, which is used by Mr. Philpot and his students to monitor development and progress. To ensure that each entry is purpose-driven, the following template is used for each entry in his class. You can download it here as an MS Word document or view it as HTML below. See an example of how this template has been applied below.
