The Best of Miami University's Portfolios 1991.
Black, Laurel, Ed.; And Others
This document presents the seven best 1991 portfolios, written by high school students entering Miami University (Ohio) seeking credit and advanced placement as part of the university's optional portfolio writing program. The program requires students to submit four pieces: (1) a reflective letter introducing the writer and the portfolio; (2) a story or description; (3) an explanatory essay; and (4) an analysis of a written text. Each portfolio is read independently by two faculty members of the Department of English specially trained in portfolio writing assessment. The readers follow a 3-point scoring guide developed specifically for the Miami University portfolio program. Appendices include a detailed description of each piece, together with submission guidelines; the 1991 Scoring Guide; and a list of the supervising faculty. (GLR)
