Notes on the Portfolio Approach to Teaching Writing.
Bottoms, Laurie S.
Quarterly of the National Writing Project and the Center for the Study of Writing and Literacy, v14 n2 p27-29 Spr 1992
Discusses a college instructor's experimentation with portfolios in the writing class. Notes that, after the first year, students' writing had not improved--they still wrote as if the teacher were the only audience. Describes changes made (having students generate their own topics, reading each other's writing, and publishing students' writing) that helped students feel more like real writers. (RS)
