Reflect, Collaborate, and Celebrate: Building on the Success of the Graduation Portfolio Roundtable

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Compass School's portfolio roundtable process has long had a powerful impact. Students are led to profound self awareness, teachers have found a source of unparalleled gratification, and community members better understand the aims of personalized learning. But how can a school build on these successes and raise the bar for all students--even in the non-portfolio years? Teachers and administrators are invited to learn about our "portfolio week", a structure that can create an exciting pulse of reflecting, collaborating, and celebrating in school. You will learn more about the power of portfolio roundtables, try out prompts for end-of-year reflections, gain ideas for incorporating peer-peer collaboration in the portfolio process, and brainstorm how to adapt any of these ideas to your classroom or school.

Humanities Teacher, Compass School
I've been teaching writing, literature, US history, film, and other random tidbits for twenty years. You can talk to me about integrating visual arts with literature and history, using public exhibitions to engage students in differentiated projects such as film-making and living museums, and working with the zany, fascinating adolescent creature. The other hat I wear is college counseling, so you can ask me about that as well.
