Workplace Writing Professional Portfolio

This year will mark the first year that our Workplace Writing students will transition from a binder of compilation of work to a digital presence.  We decided to use Google Sites for a few reasons:
  • Page Level Admission
  • Uploading of Documents onto a Page
  • Seamless integration with Google Docs (*Viewable Permission Rights Must Provide Access)
The site was created and uploaded to our school's template gallery.  Students will access the template on a Chromebook.

*If you can't view the template in your school's domain, please request access.

Impact On Students:
Creativity:  While a template was created, students have the option of change the color, font, and overall appearance to personalize.
Critical Thinking: Placing the correct information in the presentation form is very important.  Students will be directed to think critically about the content and the way it appears to the viewer.
Citizenship:  This is the most important aspect.  This portfolio represents themselves on this page, but their other digital content (Twitter, Facebook) must also portray them in a positive light.
