Smith, Amy F.
Childhood Education, v76 n4 p204-08 Sum 2000
Examined the use of reflective portfolios in preschool. Found that: with practice, preschool children provided meaningful, reflective responses when questioned about their portfolios; decision making in the classroom encouraged reflective thought; valued artifacts represented new learning, hard work, and independence; sharing artifacts with other children contributed to planning and goal setting; and the portfolios encouraged parent participation.
