Vocational Portfolio for Learning Support Students. Level I.
Youshock, Joseph; And Others
This portfolio establishes the work and the skill levels of learning support students as well as being a vehicle for driving curriculum and establishing achievable work outcomes for these students. The portfolio was developed to give students, parents, and educators the opportunity to work together collaboratively to identify needed appropriate work skills, and to enable the student to display a collection of works that represents the achievement of those skills. The portfolio, the first in a series of three that cover the secondary grade levels, is for grades seven and eight and is geared to culminate in documented employment skills. The portfolio represents sequential growth and development in the areas of career development, vocational development, community work experience, and work habits. The portfolio is divided into the following sections: vocational curriculum-based assessment inventory, mathematics achievement, reading achievement, physical aptitudes, community exposure, work habits, career attitudes and experiences, and career exploration. Each section provides for assessment and achievement. Transition portfolio forms provide space for identified yearly outcomes and goals. (KC)
