A Portfolio Experience in Writing across the Team.
Grabill, Patricia J.
Middle School Journal, v29 n3 p20-24 Jan 1998
A teaching team from Fall Creek Valley Middle School in Indianapolis, Indiana sought to improve their students' writing skills by collecting writing samples in portfolios in each of their subject areas. This approach allowed the eighth-grade students to assess their progress as writers, see connections between the disciplines, and understand the importance of writing in all their classes. (TJQ)
