Reflective Portfolio 1
Rescheduled from 01 Oct.
If you have been keeping up with your blogging, this should only take you a few minutes to compile. If you've fallen behind, this assignment is a chance for you to catch up.
1) Create a new entry on your weblog, with a title that emphasizes what you feel you have accomplished this term. Write a brief introduction that introduces the class and your portfolio to a reader who may have wandered in from Google, who doesn't know the purpose of the assignment or what the class is supposed to cover.
2) Use material you have posted on your blog to support your statement about what you learned. You may give a simple bulleted list, or you may write a paragraph that includes key words that link to specific pages on your site. I definitely do NOT want just the URLs of every entry you have posted. I am asking you to sort and organize your entries into several broad categories.
2A) Link to one or several entries that you posted on time (such as agenda items posted 24 hours before the class discussion, or reflection papers posted before the class meeting... something you posted during a classroom exercise would be a weak contribution here). Don't just paste the URL into your blog entry, and don't just convert the URL into a link. Instead, write some significant words, such as the title of the entry or the reason you are including it in your blog, and turn those significant words into a link.
2B) Include one or several entries that demonstrate your ability to interact with peers. Your entry might link to something a classmate posted, or your entry might have attracted comments from peers. If someone leaves a comment, you should reply to the comment in order to try to keep the conversation going.
2C) Include one or several links to entry on your blog that shows your ability to write in depth.
2D) Include one or several links to a page on a classmate's blog where you left a significant comment. (Would "Good job!" or "LOL" count as significant comments? Probably not.)
3) Submit your portfolio by posting a trackback to this page. (Again, if the trackback doesn't work, you can always post a comment that includes the URL of your page.)

Every topic covered in this news writing class has been completely new to me. Not only has the class introduced a new style of writing that is totally different than anything I've encountered in literature-based writing classes, I've also been... Read More
Well, coming to college having no jounalism skills, and personally, being someone who never paid much attention to the news, I think i'm doing okay in my News Writing class. I have learned a great deal of 'restraint' in my writing and... Read More
