The portfolio is completed in your classroom and includes student work, videotapes and other teaching artifacts. The videos and student work are supported by commentaries on the goals and purposes of instruction, reflections on what occurred, the effectiveness of the practice, and the rationale for your professional judgment. Portfolios are designed to take at least four months to complete.
It is important to remember that the portfolio will be closely associated with normal daily tasks, and enhanced by your collaboration with peers. The portfolio affords the opportunity to analyze and refine professional practice, and ultimately enhance student learning.
