Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The focus of this staff development project is on the development and implementation of Literacy Portfolios in the elementary classroom. The participants in the project devise purposes for their portfolios, experience Writer's Workshop and participate in a number of other literacy activities while creating their own portfolios. The theory of portfolio development is explained in great detail for the participants through the readings they complete during the course of the project. The active participation in the creation of a portfolio and the background knowledge in portfolio theory, will enable the participant to begin developing portfolios in their own classrooms.
