Begin your portfolio with
Table of Contents
Prepare 6 sections:
a) new word + part of speech
b) dictionary definition
c) dictionary example
d) your own example ( a sentence using the new word in your own sentence)
e.g. Give up (v.) the act of quitting.
He gave up smoking.
I wanted to quit, but my friend told me not to give up.
Grammar sections are typically assigned as homework since they are mostly a review and most of the class time is devoted to writing.
A reflection paragraph is required for research- write one personal reaction paragraph about your research or findings.
Add any activities assigned from North Star Lab: Focus on Reading, Academic Skills (A&B) from the units covered in this course (Compulsory).
Writings + Final Copy
Include pre-writing (brainstorms, charts, etc.) and rough drafts ( in the final copy highlight the points covered in each unit such as grammar, vocabulary, and other expressions or tips)
Please speak English only
Be on time
Do your homework
Writing 1|Writing 2|Writing 3|ALP|Mid Term|Final
Your Project Grade will be based on your writing portfolio
Your writing portfolio will contain writing done inside and outside of class (including homework).
Please do all assignments
it will be part of your grade
We will be doing process writing throughout the course. Avoid being absent since preliminary writings are factored into your grade (not just the final draft)
The mid term exam will be on the ninth day of class.
The final exam will be on the seventeenth day of class.
( include activities that were not completed in class due to lack of time such as Express Opinions and Synthesize)
(daily entries) each entry should contain
of a page
Include your personal thoughts and reasons for those thoughts about the subject you write about.
The section will include handouts, notes, etc. that do not fit into the other sections.
Portfolios will be collected three times. Each collection will be worth one point. If your portfolio is late, you will lose half a point for that check. Also, if the portfolio is incomplete (this includes journals and homework), you will lose half a point. Assignments done the day of the collection are not considered for these collections unless otherwise stated by me. Be sure to have a table of contents and labeled section divisions as they are also considered in the completeness of your portfolio.
