Prek - K&1 portfolio training

Portfolios are not Pinterest perfect collections of student artwork. Portfolios showcase a student's growth from beginning to end with samples of meaningful work. The portfolio process requires exploring standards and documenting student growth through standards based instruction. It ensures teachers are analyzing assessments to meet the rigorous expectations of the standards. And finally, it involves collecting meaningful evidence to demonstrate student growth observed during the learning process. In this hands-on workshop, participants will engage in answering these Essential Questions:

What is a portfoilo?

What is in a portfolio?

How is a portfolio scored?

How do I document my evidence? (Tools and Technology)

Where do I present my portfolio?

When do we move forward with implementation?
