This is a creative supplement to any English class to get your students writing more. For the most part, the writing is informal and creative, with a small essay component for each set.
Require students to purchase a three prong notebook or folder and to make the assignment sheet the first page of their folder. The Writing Portfolio is an out of class assignment that requires students to write a set amount of entries in a given time (I allowed my students eight weeks to complete it). There are three types of entries the students will write, two being creative and informal, and one being a formal essay. WP1 requires students to write eight entries in total (Entry topics include: Quotation Analysis, Journals, and Formal Essays). Prompts are included for each topic. WP2 requires students to write five entries in total from the same topics, but all of the prompts are different. Of course you can change the number of entries to your liking!
A rubric is also attached to grade each portfolio.
