      Margaret-

      I think portfolios are valuable when you ask students to put all formative writing assessments in the portfolios, and monthly, I asked my students to pull those formative pieces out and revise. This would allow them to refine the same piece 5-6 times throughout the year and then write a final reflection about how much they saw growth in their own writing throughout the process. It's remarkable to see the evolution from the beginning to the end of the year.

      Best,
      Katie
