The goals of this Portfolio Review assignment are (1) to encourage students to reflect on their work at the end of the year and (2) to organize student work for the next teacher or the parents.
Students will identify strengths and weaknesses in their own work in order to evaluate 4 portfolio pieces from this school year.

This includes 1 page of directions for students and a 2-page graphic organizer that students fill out, cut into 4 sections, and attach to portfolio pieces. There is also a sample filled out and an alternate direction page.
All pages are provided in Word Document format for those who would like to edit them, and in PDF format for easy printing.
I included a basic directions page, but also a content-specific directions page for ELA that references skills learned. If you'd like, you are able to edit the document to list skills learned in your course throughout the year.
This assignment can be relevant to any subject, but especially to English Language Arts, Writing, Social Studies, or another class where students are expected to do projects and/or essays.
