Saving Time with Writing Portfolios. An Idea Book for Administrators and Classroom Teachers.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort.
Intended primarily for Kentucky classroom teachers and administrators, this idea book first identifies three major issues that members of the Writing Advisory Committee felt should be addressed so that writing instruction will not suffer because of use of the writing portfolio. The broad issues emphasized in the idea book are for teachers to: (1) work with administrators, school-based council, and other teachers to encourage school and district support for quality writing instruction; (2) incorporate writing tasks into all subjects, making them a routine part of instruction; and (3) use technology in more efficient and effective ways. The idea book defines these issues more closely, with examples included, in its next two sections: "District/School Commitment for Successful Writing Program" and "Time Saving Strategies during the Writing Process." The resource suggestion section cites three Kentucky Department of Education materials and eight Kentucky Educational Television videos, as well as seven books used as workshop materials. (NKA)
