*Beginning with courses completed during summer 2019 and after, new portfolio requirements will go into effect. Please contact your program specialist for information. Updates coming.
All Reading Teacher 316 candidates will complete an electronic portfolio. The portfolio is a longitudinal account of the educator's learning and growth over time. Contributions to the portfolio will take place throughout the duration of the program and will prove to be a valuable tool for interviewing purposes, self-reflection, and demonstration of skills. The portfolio must earn a passing score within six months of the final course in the program.
The purpose of the portfolio is to:
- demonstrate professional growth, understanding, and application of course content
- demonstrate the impact of newly acquired knowledge, skills, and dispositions on PK-12 student learning
- demonstrate competency in the Wisconsin State Teacher Standards and the INTASC Teaching Standards as related to literacy.
Successful completion of an assessment portfolio is a requirement of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and Viterbo University.
