St. James Students Create Portfolios

Conferencing with Mme Narozanski is grade 6 French Immersion student Paige Niemi.

October 13, 2010 - Just as artists, investment brokers, architects, and other professionals use portfolios to showcase their best work, the French Immersion students of Mme Narozanski's class from St. James Catholic school are developing portfolios to highlight their best schoolwork. With teacher guidance, every student chooses work samples to place in the portfolio as the year progresses. The content in portfolios is built from class assignments and as such corresponds to all areas of the curriculum.

In this process the students are also learning how to evaluate their own work and how to set goals for future growth. Also two student-led parent conferences will take place before each report card allowing students to share their own evaluations of their work and personal goals for improvement with their parents.
