Final Portfolio
Each EN 101 student at Washburn University is required to submit a portfolio that includes the
1. All essays assigned for the class addressing differing rhetorical situations. These essays
must include:
• Evidence of a drafting and revision process
• Documentation and synthesis of source materials
• Persuasive/argumentative writing
• Critical/analytical writing
2. At least one reflective piece of writing that among other things articulates the purposes
and revision processes of the pieces included in the portfolio
3. Evidence of a variety of writing-practice activities
4. Clear organization of content to aid in review
At the end of the semester, instead of a final exam, you will submit a final portfolio of your
writing. This portfolio should present your best work and should also portray the process you
went through during the semester to produce that work. Final and rough drafts of all formal
papers are required in the portfolio.
Organization of your portfolio
Your portfolio must be in a 3-ring binder or folder. (I will provide these for you, if I have
In the following order, you must begin with:
1. Table of Contents
2. Cover letter (this is your 3-page reflection and the only new composition in the portfolio)
Then, after the above, the rest of your portfolio will consist of:
• Rough drafts of each of your papers
• Final drafts of each of your papers
• At least one reflection (one of the reflections you wrote in class during the semester) in
addition to your 3-page cover letter
• Several examples of prewriting/drafting activities:
o In-class activities
o Written responses to readings and/or videos
o Brain storming/free-writing exercises we did in class leading up to our papers
o Group activity notes
o Peer Review
• Please include dividers between these sections! They don’t have to be fancy; a
labeled, plain piece of paper will do.
(After the table of contents and cover letter, you can put the rest of the portfolio in the
order you choose, as long as it’s clearly stated in the table of contents.)
3-Page Reflection Paper: The Cover Letter
The only new component in your portfolio is a 3-page reflection in the form of a letter describing your progress
as a writer this semester.
• 3 pages long (formatted like all of our other papers – MLA)
• Address the letter to me or to an important person in your life. (this gives you a specific audience)
• Even though this is personal in nature (using “I”), revise it like you would a paper and consider word
choice/tone accordingly. This is an academic piece of writing.
• As with all of our papers, consider organization—drawing in the reader (introduction), providing
evidence for your points, transitioning from sentence to sentence and paragraph to paragraph, and
leaving the reader with a deeper point to consider (conclusion).
• The reflection should also exhibit your editing skills, showing your ability to turn in a clean final draft.
Below are some tips and questions to help you. Don’t just answer the questions and turn that in as a
reflection. Instead, use them to consider how to write the reflection.
(Consult all materials (assignment prompts, your drafts with my comments/peer comments, your final drafts
with comments, assigned readings, and anything else posted on D2L) to re-trace your steps. Think back to the
beginning of the class, your expectations for the class, past writing experiences, and other issues related to
writing. Have any of your thoughts and skill levels changed over the semester? How specifically?)
1. In the first paragraph, discuss your general impression of your achievement this semester and what I can
expect to find as evidence for this impression in your portfolio. What would you like to highlight as a personal
accomplishment? What challenges have you struggled with but at least partially overcome? What else do you
think a reader of your portfolio should be aware of or pay attention to when browsing through your work?
2. In the body paragraphs start by providing a general description of what is in the portfolio and then
transition to a detailed discussion of each of the 4 papers. I suggest devoting at least 1-2 paragraphs to each
paper and its drafts. Here are some questions to consider: What was the purpose of each paper? How did you
come up with, narrow, and refine your topic? What do you feel you accomplished particularly well in this
project? What was the biggest improvement from one draft to the next? What feedback or realization was most
helpful to you in researching, drafting, or revising it? What areas for further improvement do you still see?
3. Finally, reflect on your strengths and abilities as a writer: What have you learned about writing? What
problems have you encountered, and how have you solved them? Then identify writing issues, challenges, or
continuing goals for your future.
Tip 1: Do not simply rely on or repeat your instructor’s comments. This letter should be about your own voice
and perspective, and while you can take comments (mine and your peers’) into consideration, please don’t limit
your own commentary to agreeing with them.
TIP 2: The reflective letter presents an opportunity for you to reflect on your writing, rather than on your
experience or performance in the class as a whole. While your comments and opinions on the class are very
much encouraged and welcomed on the course evaluation forms, please make this reflective letter specifically
about your writing.
