PostSubject: PORTFOLIOS : The teachers' Portfolio and The learners'Portfolios.   Thu Oct 23, 2008 11:47 am

When it comes to talking about assessment tools in our schools, we generally speak about activities whether oral or written ones:
paragraph writing - gap filling - sentence reordering - idea expanding -
mistake correcting and the like ...

But one of the very efficient assessment tools is the PORTFOLIO.
When I use the word assessment I mean the LEARNERS' PORTFOLIO because THE TEACHERS' PORTFOLIO is another story we can deal with soon. learn more about the Language Portfolio :

GUIDELINES FOR PORTFOLIO ASSESSMENT IN TEACHING ENGLISH we discussed during a meeting supervised by Mr. Bentouaty Mussa, Inspector of English, Biskra and initiator of the PORTFOLIO in the wilaya:

Read this adapted interesting article:

Learners' portfolios are simply collections/selections of the pupils' achievements and activities they finalize under the supervision and the permanent teacher's watch: to help, guide,advise,accept,decline,add,correct...

Some practical steps that can be followed:

1- Talk to the learners about the portfolio, its objectives, its format... I used arabic to introduce this and it worked.

2- Prepare a Portfolio cover which is just a model, pupils can use any cover they like and find suitable to their taste provided that it carries the name of school, subject, title, teacher, learner, year... Have a look at the one I suggested to my pupils:

3- I showed them a sample of a table of contents. They are free to design theirs. This table includes all that can be added with the title and page.
4- I started with the letters of the alphabet for MS1: pupils wrote them in different shapes and colours and tried to learn them. Then they wrote a short paragraph in which they introduced themselves with photos if they wanted to. Followed a page of pictures and photos of flags, currencies, school items... then lists of countries and nationalities. Learners could choose except for the paragraph, that was what I imposed.
They did well and had supplementary knowledge dealing with File One they could never do in class.

Best wishes

Students want to feel confident about their english as a second language

…want to improve their comprehension
…want to speak faster
…want to learn more english vocabulary
and slang
…and they want to have fun with you too!
If you can provide the above, you’ll do great! So being on online english teacher
(like with Skype) will make it possible for the student to speak with the folks they want…like you!
