Learning with eTutor
are powerful because they help students learn about their learning.
They provide an opportunity for students to share the responsibility
for collecting proof or evidence of learning. Portfolios are
worth doing well because they are a rich resource for reporting…they
help student and parents see the results of student learning for
portfolios are a collection of evidence of student learning.
They become powerful when they have a purpose. There are three
major purposes for portfolios: to display student work around a
theme or subject, to show the process of learning and to show growth
provides a portfolio for each student that the parent can access.
The portfolio gives a report of the lessons completed and the results
of quizzes and exams. We also encourage our students to
keep their own progress portfolio. We suggest that the
student create a folder for each one of the major curricular areas:
Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. As the
Activity and Extended Learning sections are completed for each lesson,
these are placed in the folders. Parents know where to find
their child’s work, they can review what their child has done,
the child can refer back to what has been achieved and they provide a
basis for discussion.
goes by other things can be added to the portfolio, such as a time
sheet to record the time the child began and ended a learning session.
Parents can add copies of the e-Tutor portfolio, so that comparisons
can be made between accomplishments in the two types of
portfolio showcases the learner and his or her own learning, rather
than who they could be by making comparisons with others.
