Chapters cover each of the standard parts of a portfolio—Introduction, Influences, Instruction, Individualization, and Integration—and explore how the teachers apply the principles to their classrooms and styles. Teachers, peer mentors and administrators alike will appreciate this detailed approach to the evaluation process. With this book, you can turn your portfolio into a powerful tool of self-assessment as well as a tangible demonstration of your teaching capabilities.
