It provides practical, tested strategies to implement the process in a clear, organized and meaningful way.' - from the Foreword by John P.

Real-life examples show how the approach has been successfully applied at any level and for any subject matter.Newly added features include: - Strategies for beginning the portfolio process with students - Current research findings that support student-led conferencing - Easy-to-use timelines and sample schedules - Masters that cut down on teacher prep-time - The latest information on electronic portfolios
