Using Portfolios across the Curriculum.
Lockledge, Ann, Ed.; Hayn, Judith, Ed.
Noting that many middle school teachers are challenged to use portfolio assessment in the midst of their other daily responsibilities and mandated activities, this monograph demonstrates how portfolio assessment can contribute to student learning, shows how teachers use portfolio assessment in their classrooms, discusses students' views of portfolio assessment, and presents unique uses for portfolios. Following an introduction on the "what" and the "why" of portfolio use, the book's chapters are: (1) "How Portfolios Enhance Learning" (Deborah H. Sherrill); (2) "Portfolios: Moving beyond the Scrapbook" (Ann Lockledge); (3) "Reflection Collection: Portfolios that Emerge from Advisory" (Barbara A. Smythe); (4) "Portfolios in a Writing Workshop" (Arlene M. Owens); (5) "Portfolios in Social Studies" (Ann Lockledge); (6) "Portfolios in Mathematics and Science" (Kathleen Lynch); (7) "Helping Students Make Selections from Different Areas" (Rhonda Evans Benton); (8) "What Students Say about Portfolios" (Deborah H. Sherrill); (9) "Students as Employees: Integrating Portfolios across the Curriculum" (Angela Joyner); (10) "Portfolios, Assessment, and a Curriculum Fair" (Arlene M. Owens); (11) "Developing Portfolio Assessment: A Team Effort" (Ann Lockledge); (12) "A Professional Portfolio as a Model" (Judith A. Hayn). Also included is a list of web links to portfolios and authentic assessment. (Contains 33 references.) (KB)
