AHS English Department Writing Portfolios

  1. To compile significant student writing in each class into one standard portfolio
  2. To provide the following year's teacher with a ready reference for a student's progress
  3. To provide a bank of work to which the student can refer for the purpose of enhancing skills
  4. To provide a solid source for input during parent conferences
  5. To help ensure consistency of instruction within each level and in the department overall
