Overview

A Guide to Portfolios is great for individuals looking at career options, K-12 teachers, college and university faculty, students, career development professionals, and anyone who is intrigued by the idea of creating a unique and powerful tool to showcase their success.  This fun and interactive book provides information, self-assessments, and check-lists to help you create and use the portfolio that best fits your needs.  

 

Highlights include: 

  • Working with the premise that all portfolios are not the same and may not be completely interchangeable, this book breaks portfolios into three distinct portfolio categories: assessment, career, and personal.
  • Categories are then broken down further into six different types of portfolios, each used in a different situation with a different audience.
  • A simple four-step process provides you with an easy way to begin and complete the process of building your portfolio.
  • The book closes with specific information, questions, and suggestions for creating each type of portfolio and presenting it to the unique audience for which it is intended. 

Additional Support - in and out of the classroom...

Discipline-specific information can be accessed through the Student Success Supersite (www.prenhall.com/success), where students and faculty will find an array of resources.
