This "portfolio" is a compilation of the many writing experiences completed by my students this year. These English Language Arts and Social Studies essays are in synch with the New York State Education Department Learning Standards. These essays were compiled in a black loose-leaf notebook that was maintained throughout each quarter. All of the material in the student portfolios was typed in the lab or classroom using a word processor. 
By the end of the school year each student has a complete portfolio of their sixth grade ELA and Social Studies writing experiences. These writing experiences will also be transferred to a CD-ROM disk as a "Digital Yearbook" for distribution to each student.

Throughout the school year students demonstrated their writing ability in a myriad of ways. Using the computer lab in our school and classroom and with internet access, these students polished their technology skills and covered a multitude of topics.
