  • 9. St. George’s Writing PortfolioWhere might you find a copy of a five-page short story chronicling a trip to the Oort Cloud, a half-page explanation of how a pulley works, a journal entry penned minutes after completing the mostfantastic book yet read, the six-column-inch editorial on recycling for the school newspaper, the gamerules for an original game of probability, a reflection on the complimentary styles of two painters, apoem celebrating the deliciousness of cornbread, a narrator’s script for a documentary on rugby, and aseventeen-page research paper on Egyptian hieroglyphs with all its fifty-nine footnotes? All thesetexts and many more could be found in the personal writing portfolio of a student at St. George’s, ofcourse.Each St. George’s student creates and is solely responsible for a portfolio of written work, anindividualized collection of pieces representing writing and learning across the disciplines.Accompanying each portfolio piece, the student attaches a brief, self-reflective written commentaryexploring the choices made while writing and insights discovered upon completion. Each piece ofwriting a student includes in a portfolio is evidence of the thinking, planning, and effort used tocreate that text. At the end of a school year, a glance into a portfolio exhibits the student’s agility in avariety of writing formats, highlighting strengths and bringing challenges into view. Over theyears, the pieces of writing in a portfolio showcases the student’s proficiency of expression, the easewith which the student uses language, the confidence necessary to respond in writing to any questionposed, and the types of writing at which the student excels, offering finally a composite of who thestudent is as a writer.In keeping a portfolio, a student writer comes to discover what experienced writers know: that theprocess through which each individual writer creates text is unique; that writing can be used both tolearn information and to generate ideas; that the process of writing, like the process of thinking, isrecursive; that understanding the audience and purpose of any composition is essential to a writer;that reading extensively helps writers see how other writers use language well; and that to developindividual writing abilities, writers must write and write and write. In keeping a portfolio, a studentwriter will also, just possibly, come to know how unbelievably spectacular it is to be a writer.
