What is the purpose of our Google Sites Portfolios?
1. To house finished work and reflect on it
2. To see growth over the months
3. To house ongoing data
4. To help students make choices about their learning
We just finished up our "Window A" unit, so I took this last week to help kids get items into their portfolio. Here are two things we discovered last week (I love learning new things with my students!):
Embedding a Book Creator Book
My students have one page on their site devoted to data. My next goal is for them to add some of their goals on this page as well. Last week we figured out how to put our reading data onto our data page. It was a disaster at first (I hadn't made a copy for each student, so you can imagine how that went down.), but then we figured it out.
I'm committed to not panicking about this. It is my first year and I will set my intentions and follow through. I will keep reflecting. But I'm not going to feel an urgency to get more, do more, document more, etc. I welcome feed back on my journey!
