LIFE Mid-year Portfolio Review (January 3, 2005)
Staff from the Office of Environmental Education will work with
teachers and LIFE site coordinators to conduct an initial review of
student portfolios. The purpose of the mid-year review is twofold: 1) to
work with teachers to make portfolios an effective assessment tool, and
2) to provide feedback to students on how they can document and reflect
on their learning (see LIFE
Professional Development Calendar for details).
