Portfolios in education; English language -- Composition and exercises -- Study and teaching (Elementary);
The use of writing portfolios to enhance elements of the writing process is investigated. The writing process includes planning, writing the first draft, revising, editing and publishing (Graves, 1983). During the last three stages of the writing process procedures of student participation, reflection and self-evaluation are encouraged and enhanced through teacher-student collaboration. Students select writings based on values where various attributes are assessed (Graves, 1983). Authentic assessment based on criteria informs instruction. The findings of published literature shows strong support for incorporating the writing portfolio as a teaching tool.
