9th Grade High School Portfolio

Freshman Portfolio Requirement

  Your High School Portfolio will be an ever-changing reflection of you over the course of your four years attending Pleasant Grove High School. It is important that you save all of your Portfolio documents in a safe place at home starting in the ninth grade.  Some of these documents include Kuder assignments, Summative Letters, Best Work assignments, and Reflection Windows.  Once each term,  you will be required to submit a Best Work  Reflection Window using Google Forms. Instructions for submitting your Reflection Window are included on this webpage.   You will also receive instructions on how to complete a Reflection Window and successfully submit it in your Advocacy class. Your Reflection Window can be based on assignments, projects, tests-whatever you feel exemplifies your best work.   In addition to these items, you can also reflect on significant life experiences, awards, and recognitions that occurred during this school year.  A total of six Reflection Windows, accompanied by the Best Work assignment, are required in your final Portfolio. The breakdown for Best Work Reflection Windows is as follows: two that represent growth, two that represent strengths, and two that connect to your future plans and goals. Additionally, at least two of the six must be from 9th, 10th, or 11th grade and at least two of the six must be academic in nature. At the end of your senior year, your Portfolio will be examined by the PGHS faculty and staff who will score it based on a rubric.

  The purpose of the Portfolio: 

  1. A collection of material that represents student growth, strengths, and plans for the future 
  2. A guide for the High School Portfolio oral presentation 
  3. Material to be used as a reference for jobs and/or college.
