As a part of our skills-based curriculum, the English Department uses portfolios to collect evidence of student progress in those skills. In each of our required courses (English 1, English 2, and English 3), students’ major projects, essays, and local assessments are placed into the English Portfolio to document progress and growth. Individual student portfolios are created during a student’s freshman year course. In the case of a transfer student, new students would create a portfolio during the first Oswego English course.
These portfolios are housed in the English Department Office and in English classrooms. Portfolios are available to students so they may reflect on their progress and set educational goals; faculty may also use them to guide instruction and to make placement recommendations. Student portfolios are available upon student or parent request for at-home reflection. Once a student graduates or transfers, that student may keep the English Portfolio
