Literacy Portfolios: Helping Students Know Themselves.
Hansen, Jane
Educational Leadership, v49 n8 p66-68 May 1992
In a New Hampshire school, literacy portfolios enable students to plan a relevant curriculum for themselves. After learning what each student values, teachers seek ways to honor students' concerns and outside interests. Instead of passively awaiting the next assignment, students make their own plans and, with teacher coaching, become better writers while completing self-assigned tasks. (11 references) (MLH)
