The Portfolio requirement is created as a Blog. This is the end of year Exam.
Any written assignment, however, can be daunting for ESL students. To write in English, learn a new format, and social media program is overwhelming for many . So, I kept this in mind and assured students they could do it.
Teachers, I know, sometimes require a Blog for their students all year and have some success. I haven't tried it before, but I may now! It was a good experience for all, I think.
Students include the following, Artist Statement, Photos of Artwork, Captions (title, material, dimensions, year made), Descriptive/Reflection paragraph, and customization of Blog. The presentation of Artworks, as a whole, includes the navigation properties of the Blog as well.
Here are a few from Gr.10:
Wendy's Art Portfolio Blog
Jacky's Art Portfolio Blog
Herbert`s Art Portfolio Blog
Eric's Art Portfolio Blog
And, a few from Gr.9:
Snow's Art Portfolio Blog
Katie's Art Portfolio Blog
Joyce's Art Portfolio Blog
Adrian's Art Portfolio Blog
I chose these Blogs as samples, they were also the most complete. Any end of year project is difficult for students, they are tired, and things were missed, or not as complete or thorough as they could have been earlier in the year.
