The Senior Portfolio
All files MUST be in Microsoft Word or PDF Format, unless specified. Use the following to organize your Senior Portfolio.
You will need to create 6 main folders and in each main folder you will have several sub-folders.
Below is how each folder and sub-folder should be titled and laid out.
What is in the portfolio?
- The portfolio contains key assignments from your secondary education courses.
- The portfolio is composed of the 7 sections listed below.
Why a portfolio?
- UVU School of Education must be able to document our claim to the State of Utah and to our national accreditation association that we are preparing students to be successful beginning teachers. The portfolio of key assignments demonstrates your preparation in meeting InTASC standards.
- It gives you the opportunity to reflect upon your training prior to your student teaching.
You should save the following “key assignments” from your courses for your portfolio.
By saving we mean: Save a hard copy, save electronic copies in more than one place.
