And now for a word about room temperature….
Begin with the End in Mind: Final Portfolio
1. What is it?
Ø It’s a collection of your best and brightest work—ten original pieces, written by you this term.
2. What’s it worth?
Ø 15-20% of your entire term grade.
3. Can I see some examples?
Ø Sure! J I’m going to take you on a tour of the projects, then I’m going to let you view them independently.
4. Should I fill anything out as I’m viewing?
Ø Thank you for asking. The answer is “yes”! Here’s a Portfolio Viewing sheet for you!
5. What is the procedure for this?
Ø Browse all the projects.
o Started 2:02
Ø After ten minutes or so, we’ll discuss the worksheet, Portfolio Viewing handout.
Ø Now you go back to browsing, but fill out the sheet as you browse now.
o Started 2:16-ish
Ø Move to a new project whenever you’re ready.
6. Why are we doing this, Willis?
Ø …so we can BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND!
Ø …so you start to get an idea of what a Portfolio is.
Ø …so the seed is planted in your brain today, and you can be thinking all term about this project.
None—I’m saving up a huge assignment for you to do over the weekend!
