Preparing a Final Course Portfolio


Professor Rodgers

College Writing


The Final Course Portfolio is a way for you to review all of the work that you have done this semester, revise some of it, reflect on it, and show me the progress you have made with your understanding of the various elements of college writing.  While all of the assignments and essays that we have worked on this semester have been important, the final course portfolio gives you an opportunity to see how the various assignments and essays fit together and to archive the work that you have done this semester so you can refer to it and use it in the future.

You can submit your Final Course Portfolio in print or electronically via your Open Lab ePortfolio.  However, please choose one, either print or electronic.  Your ability to clearly organize and present your work is part of what will be assessed in this project, which is why it is important that you carefully compile this document and make it as user friendly as possible.  Below, you will find a table of contents for the Course Portfolio.  Please organize your materials accordingly.  If you are missing any materials, that is fine, but I would appreciate it if you could include a sheet indicating that this work is missing.
