EN 101 Portfolio Assignment

Genre

Reflection & Analysis: A Portfolio of Work and a Reflective Letter

Audience

Panel of GRCC English Professors, including your instructor

Purpose

To review the semester holistically in order to appreciate your progress as a writer.

To select and analyze written pieces from your semester that illustrate learning/growth.

To write about your progress in a way that is meaningful to both you and your audience.

To apply what you have learned this semester in a capstone project.

Portfolio Components

At minimum, the portfolio must include these 7 components:

· 1 reflective letter

· 3 short assignments

· 2 rough drafts

· 1 revised/final project

Reflective Letter Content

Introduce your portfolio with a reflective letter that is intended not just for me, your instructor, but also for a panel of professors in the English department. As you introduce your portfolio to the panel, reflect on your writing experiences this semester and use them to compose an analysis of your learning and growth. Keep in mind that a key element of any good writing is backing up ideas with evidence. For this assignment, that means finding specific examples from your work this semester to support your analysis. Use each of the components you chose to include in your portfolio as evidence for the claims you will make in your reflective letter. Any piece of writing that you include in your portfolio must be referenced at least once in your reflective letter.

Address at least three of the following prompts in your reflective letter in a way that is cohesive and logical; in other words, avoid simply compiling a list of answers to each bullet point. In the form of quotes, paraphrases, and summaries, use evidence taken from your portfolio components to explore and address at least three of these prompts:

· Choose a reading assignment from this semester and describe in detail how it influenced your development as a writer.

· How have audience and purpose shaped your texts?

· Describe how your information literacy skills have changed over the course of the semester.

· How have the skills you practiced in EN 101 helped you to succeed in the writing you do for other courses and/or outside of school?
