THE PORTFOLIO

In the course of our work this semester, we have written five papers about Holocaust, each one drawing on our reading, individually or in combination, of our class texts:  War & Genocide, by Doris Bergen; The Journal of Helene Berr; Still Alive, by Ruth Kluger, and The Diary of Dawid Sierakowiak.

A big part of writing, however, is rewriting.  For this reason, our final project asks you to revise three of these papers and put them, together with a reflective cover document, into a portfolio.

Let me take the key elements of those last couple of sentences and say more about them.

  1. Revision.  The portfolio is not about editing alone; you may not simply correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors.  Your portfolio pieces, at least in the initial draft or two, should require improvements in content and organization.

I suggest that you begin to revise your paper based on the comments I have provided on all of your papers in my end notes—I wrote them with this specific purpose in mind.  If you did not do this on your first revision assignment, be sure to do it now, for the portfolio.

  1. Three papers.  Unlike other teachers with whom you may have studied writing, I do not want you to revise all five papers for your portfolio.  Please choose three papers based on these criteria:
  • a sensitivity to your audience (“which of these papers is a reader most likely to be interested in reading?”), and
  • your growth as a writer (“which papers will allow me to learn more about writing if I revise them?”), and
  • the page count you need for your desired grade in ENG 100. See the course description and syllabus under the heading “Assignments and Grading.”

Please include in your portfolio all of the writing that you have done in our class—all five of the papers and all of the drafts of your three revisions.  But remember:  the page count is based on the final drafts only of the three papers in your portfolio.  I will tell you the order to sequence this writing at the time you turn in the portfolio.

  1. The reflective document.  This is a piece of writing in which you describe your learning in the course.  This may include reading (the reading guides and daily work; vocabulary building, summarizing, asking discussion questions) and critical thinking (brainstorming for the paper assignments, the cubing heuristic, and so on). But it must also include remarks about your growth as a writer as it is demonstrated in the portfolio pieces.  So, for example, if you began the semester with papers that were one long paragraph, you could talk about how you have learned some judgment about multi-paragraph writing.  Please note that it’s not enough to say “I have learned about paragraphs:” you need to explain what you have learned about the nature of paragraphs and refer to the papers in the portfolio as evidence.

An explanation of your choice of papers to include in the portfolio might be an excellent strategy for starting the reflective piece.

Like your revisions, the reflective document also must be a specified length, depending on the grade you want for the course.  This too is explained in the “Assignments and Grading” section of the course description and syllabus.

The portfolio is due during our final exam time:  between the hours of 3 and 5 p.m. on Monday, December 5th, in a place to be determined.  (We’ll know that location soon!)
