English 110 (English Composition) Portfolio Components
As we wrap things up here in ENG 110, I’d like you to gather what’s missing, polish what’s rough, and continue to assess how far you’ve come. Your ePortfolio is worth 15% of your grade. I strongly encourage you to double check your ePortfolio for completeness and quality of work.
- An “About Me” page. This is your chance to revise. As you polish this page, consider that you might want to refer a future professor or employer to this site. Your About Me page may include your major, your interests, and philosophy on learning.
- Your Narrative Podcast and Multimodal Paper (on separate pages). Consider leaving a brief description of your podcast including a title and date.
- First and Final Draft of One Significant Writing Project. If you have not posted these drafts already, now is a good time to select the writing project that you feel best showcases your revision process. Remember: You will focus more on the changes that you made—not the final product. Please create one page with both drafts (clearly marked) or two separate pages.
- Marked First Draft of One Peer’s Paper. This page will include your peer draft with comments. Please do your best to obscure your peer’s name. Your four part framing letter should link to this page (see next).
- Copy of Annotated Pages from at least One Course Reading. 3-5 annotated pages is sufficient.
- Informal Reading Response Evidence Associated with Chosen Annotated Reading(s). Homework responses, journal assignments, reading questions, note-taking evidence, etc.
- Your Five-Part Framing Letter (published on five separate pages) This is a very important part of ePortfolio, as your framing letter provides you with the opportunity to showcase your hard work and the learning that you, through your hard work, have achieved. You will frame your letter so that it addresses the faculty in the English department. (Don’t be afraid to toot your own horn.)
- A Copy of your Favorite Revision Strategies Sheet. This page should include a picture of your Favorite Revision Strategies Sheet and a 50-150 word framing statement discussing your favorite revision strategies and how you plan to use these strategies to draft papers outside of English Composition. Please remember to provide a thoughtful and specific reflection on how you can use (or have used) these strategies in other projects.
Some Final Notes:
Please double-check that all of your links and media work correctly, and check in with your ePortfolio buddy to make sure that their links are working well, too. Please do this before the deadline, as I will not have the opportunity to chase you down if something is not missing or working.
Learning Outcomes (A refresher)
- Demonstrate the ability to approach writing as a recursive process that requires substantial revision of drafts for content, organization, and clarity (global revision), as well as editing and proofreading (local revision).
- Be able to integrate their ideas with those of others using summary, paraphrase, quotation, analysis, and synthesis of relevant sources.
- Employ techniques of active reading, critical reading, and informal reading response for inquiry, learning, and thinking.
- Be able to critique their own and others’ work by emphasizing global revision early in the writing process and local revision later in the process.
- Document their work using appropriate conventions (MLA).
- Control sentence-level error (grammar, punctuation, spelling).
