Of the many projects students are assigned by their teachers, one of the most extensive is a portfolio. A portfolio can be created for a variety of different reasons. Sometimes, they’re to demonstrate your experience in one area, and other times, they’re to highlight your work for an entire semester or year of school. A portfolio is not only a great way to showcase everything from your projects and assignments to homework and tests, but it’s also something physical you can have to look back on when you’re older. Students in different grades will have different requirements for their portfolio assignment, but in general, portfolios tend to follow more or less the same guidelines.
