    {HO Checklist for end of year portfolio.doc}
    A major part of the portfolio will include writing a reflective essay looking back over the year. Use the following prompt to guide your efforts:
    Please review the work you have completed in English 10 honors, then write a reflective essay summarizing what you have learned so far this year, focusing especially on what you have discovered about yourself as a learner. Point out specific assignments and projects that challenged you the most to learn. Explain why. Discuss what you think your personal strengths are in English and where you might need to improve for next year. Be specific. What have you done to extend and/or deepen your learning and understanding of the topics studied in your English class this year? Give yourself credit for where you have worked hard and improved, and be honest about where you think you need to work harder. Go back and review teacher comments on your essays. What are some of your strengths in writing? What are areas for growth? What tasks, books, projects, or units have you especially enjoyed, and why? How would you rate your learning experience with the honors option? In what ways has it helped you become a better student? If it hasn't helped you, why not? What suggestions would you have for students pursuing it next year? Has the reading in class this year given you new insights on people, society, human nature, moral issues, or other important aspects of life? Have the essays you’re written on these books improved your ability to articulate your ideas on these topics? Please explain your thoughts on this.
    Considering you have the whole year on which to reflect, there is plenty for you to write on. Your essay should be at least three to four pages, double-spaced, in 12-point Times font with one-inch margins.

    The English department will assess the final portfolios and decide whether the student achieves honors or not for the entire year. The department will use the following rubric to provide feedback and assess the different components of the student's work and portfolio.
