Why Portfolders?

  • Exciting, hands-on, 3-D learning
  • Values learning from beginning to end
  • Gives students incentive to create high-quality work
  • Encourages students to share learning with others
  • Allows students to take responsibility for what they have learned
  • Portable, easy to store
  • Documents an entire unit of study
  • Makes review easy and fun

During any unit of study, students are encouraged to ask questions, find the answers to their questions, and communicate what they have learned with others. The portfolders show not just bits and pieces of a unit study, but demonstrate the entire learning process. As an assessment tool, the portfolder communicates what children are able to do as well as what they have come to understand. And, incidentally, portfolders are a lot of fun, too!
