Organized plan for portfolio development

This book was helpful in creating a portfolio for one of my EdS classes. It's well organized and clear. It's very dry, but how interesting can portfolio construction be? It's worth your money if you are required to do portfolio assessments.

Extremely helpful and well thought out

I'm a high school teacher who took an interest in portfolio creation. Unfortunately, much of the work within this field concerns elementary and middle school levels with very little to no focus on the upper grade levels. This book however, provides a excellent stepping stone for anyone considering portfolios for use in their classroom. I now intend to use two of the various types of portfolios in my social studies class - the knowledge portfolio consisting of the student's work throughout the school year and secondly an achievement portfolio containing a collection of the student's "best" work (e.g. 10). If a 4 1/2 were possible this is a more accurate grade. The only thing I wished it had were more suggestions for products to use throughout the school year.

Recommended for student teachers & classroom instructors.

In The Portfolio Organizer: Succeeding With Portfolios In YourClassroom, Carol Rolheiser, Barbara Bower, and Laurie Stevahn collaborate to produce a practical work that can help classroom teachers develop their understanding and use of portfolios as a route to educational reform, policy, and curriculum implementation. The Portfolio Organizer offers educators including administrators, staff developers, and university level faculty a flexible framework to guide their decision making for effective and efficient use. The Portfolio Organizer is highly recommended reading for student teachers and practicing classroom instructors, as well as anyone with a responsibility for monitoring or implementing school policy, program, or curriculum.
