Portfolio Assignment Instructions
Please be sure to read all of this assignment description carefully. It’s very detailed. It describes two separate things. However, all items will be submitted in ONE Word document.
The portfolio that contains elements you have been working on throughout the course; and
The final paper (problem analysis) that you will include as part of the portfolio.
Let’s look at the BIG picture first, the final portfolio.
What is a portfolio?
A portfolio is a collection of items organized in a notebook, file, or a similar format. By collecting this information throughout a course, you can clearly see the connections among assignments as well as the progress you have made. In ENGL110, your portfolio will reflect the work you have done in a specific discipline or topic, ending with the analysis of a problem you have explored. Here are the required elements of the portfolio. The required sections are included in the template.
Table of Contents
Item 1 of the Portfolio – Description of Discourse Community in Your Field
This is the assignment you submitted in week 2. You are to submit a final version of the description, including any changes recommended to you in the instructor’s feedback.
Item 2 of the Portfolio – Annotated Bibliography for your Final Paper
This is the assignment you submitted in week 4. You are to submit a final version of the annotated bibliography, including any changes recommended to you in the instructor’s feedback.
Item 3 of the Portfolio – Final Paper – Analysis of a Problem
This is the final problem analysis paper that is the culmination of all the work you have done in the course. Please see the complete description of the paper below.
Final Paper (Problem Analysis)
This analysis project requires you to tackle a problem within your field of study by first exploring it, its causes, and its impacts. Then, if you want, you can recommend one or more practical solutions to solve the problem.
After deciding on the problem you wish to tackle, begin building questions about it. Your goal for the analysis is to answer the questions through your sources. Finding multiple angles and perspectives is ideal so that you explore those possibilities in the final paper before settling on your recommendation. Be sure to identify what is at stake.
Here are questions to help guide your analysis:
What is the problem being addressed (explain, describe, and “prove” that it exists)?
Who is affected by this problem?
Why does this problem exist (identify the root causes)?
Why does the problem persist (identify the major factors that contribute to the problem’s ongoing presence)?
What is at stake if the problem is not solved?
If you decide to include a solution, use these questions to guide you:
Who can take action?
What should they do, exactly?
Why would this help?
What are the positive and negative aspects of your solution(s)?
PURPOSE: To analyze a problem and possibly provide a solution
AUDIENCE: Classmates, others interested in the field
