Deeper Learning Student Profile: Portfolio Defense
In this video, Yvonne, a student at an Envision Education school, demonstrates her learning through a College Success Portfolio Defense. She must answer questions from a teacher panel and reflect on her growth to graduate. This video is part of the Deeper Learning Series on The Teaching Channel. The 50+ videos in this series showcase 10 Deeper Learning networks that are preparing students for success — they collectively serve more than 500 schools and 227,000 students. Meet students and teachers who exemplify what can happen when the Common Core is approached with innovative teaching models that emphasize real-world experience, academic mindsets, and collaborative project work. As you watch, ask yourself: What structures are in place that support Yvonne being successful in her defense? What can be demonstrated in this defense that cannot be demonstrated through other work? How does Yvonne reflect her growth as a learner?
