Your ENGL444 portfolio is a collection of work you accumulate throughout the term. It consists of all major projects for the course as well as selected writing you have done related to the class that you see as representative of your development this term. The portfolio itself will take shape in a simple site you create that will, in its navigational menu, include the following items:

Home Page
Link to (revised?) P1. Small Pieces Hypertext
Link to (revised?) P2. Contrastive CSS
Link to P3. EM-Ad or HTML/CSS Resume
Link to 1, 2, 3, 4 Codecademy Web Fundamentals Reflections
Link to a reflective letter developed for this portfolio

Home Page
This will include a representative photograph (not necessarily a photo of you, though), and a carefully written paragraph introducing the contents of the portfolio.

1. P1.Small Pieces Hypertext
A complete copy of Project One. If you have revised the project, add "Revised" to the page header, and include the paragraph detailing the changes you've made.

2. P2.Contrastive CSS
If you have revised the project, add "Revised" to the page header, and include the paragraph detailing the changes you've made.

3. P3.EM-Ad or HTML/CSS Resume
Provide a link.

4. Up to Four Codecademy Web Fundamentals Reflections
You may include these by creating PDFs or by linking to versions you upload into Google Docs.

5. Reflective cover letter
In a reflective letter of no more than 1000 words, recount the term, keying on particularly memorable moments of learning or process-awareness, A-ha! moments, or moments of insight. Discuss any relevant factors affecting your performance in the course. Provide commentary on any of the materials you have included in the portfolio.

The completed home page of the portfolio is due no later than Monday, December 10, at 3:30 p.m. We will do Cloze testing that day in class. The completed portfolio is due Wednesday, December 12, at 3:30 p.m. You do not need to turn in a paper copy. Submit it to the appropriate dropbox in EMU Online simply by providing the hyperlink. No late portfolios will be accepted.
