Incorporating an end-of-unit portfolio project offers students an opportunity to showcase their creative works. The Empower! Poetry Portfolio also provides students with the chance to develop the following skills:
· Long-term project organization and compilation
· Metacognitive thinking and writing
· Nonfiction research
· Interpersonal and public speaking
These skills will prove relevant for students in their future studies and in other areas of life (such as their work or hobbies). Ensure students receive at least a full week to assemble their portfolios and engage in the activities planned for this project.
