CS4 students are doing an exceptional job creating e-portfolios that document their Conserve experience. We are always fascinated by students’ take on what goes on at Conserve School and enjoy reading their entries tremendously. While the e-portfolios won’t be finished until the end of the semester, I thought you’d enjoy seeing a few of the students’ early posts.
All Conserve students record and reflect on their Conserve School experience through their e-portfolios. Completed e-portfolios have at least ten web pages, each of which relates an experience at Conserve School to one of the school’s learning goals. Teachers and administrators, who serve as student advisors, check on their advisees’ e-portfolios regularly, comment on new entries as they are posted, and nominate the most outstanding posts for special recognition. Every two weeks a panel of staff members evaluates all the nominated e-portfolio pages and chooses the most outstanding — not an easy task! Students who win awards are recognized during lunch-time community meetings and receive an awards certificate and a gift certificate to the school store.
Our first two e-portfolio award winners are Leah B. and Izzy B. Congratulations to Leah and Izzy! Leah won an award for her first e-portfolio entry, and Izzy won an award for her second e-portfolio entry. You can see their award-winning pages by clicking on the links below. Please take time to read over the students’ entries. They are extremely well-done and will give you a wonderful window into life at Conserve!
