At the end of your last semester as an English major, you must submit for approval a portfolio of written work that you have done in English courses at UW-Parkside. A portfolio of student work must consist of the following:
If one of these components is missing, the student must provide an additional written explanation; whether or not your explanation will merit exemption is up to the discretion of the Portfolio Assessment Committee.
As the Portfolio is a capstone project for the English major, and should reflect the best efforts of its students, the new material (cover letter, self-reflective essay, and introductions) in the Portfolio will be assessed using a rubric based on the Goals and Objectives of the English Department. The Portfolio will be assessed on whether or not a student has demonstrated Mastery in most, if not all, of those Goals and Objectives.
Portfolios are due to the English Office by 12 noon on the second day of the exam period, at the end of the semester. Additional information on the portfolio requirements may be obtained by visiting the English Department office, the department chair’s office, or the English Department webpage.
