For those of you following my blog, you have seen how I implement the Sportfolio in my classes. At the beginning of each year, every student must create a new front cover for their Sportfolio.
A key change that I made at the end of last school year was that I keep, on file, all students Sportfolio work from the previous year. This completed work from the year prior, will be added to the back of their new Sportfolio folder.
My aim is to show how the student progresses in PE in terms of their understanding of big concepts and ideas over the years and for previous Sportfolio work to be used as a resource to look back upon when needed. This is especially valuable during the pre-assessment phase of any new unit. Once the student leaves the school for good, I will give them their Sportfolio to take away with them.
As the 2012-2013 school year started up this week at Nanjing International School in China, I have had many of the classes for the first time this week. I had new Sportfolio cover pages ready to go, along with pencils, pencil crayons, erasers etc, for them to use when creating a new design for their front page.
They are meant to use illustrations and/or words to show what PE means to them. I also had examples of Sportfolio front covers from previous years on display to give them some new ideas. Once the students have completed the new front covers of their Sportfolios, I will post some of their work on my website.
Interested in starting up the Sportfolio in your PE program? If so, let me know any questions that you may have. Thanks!
