G. Portfolios

You have to prepare two types of portfolios during your student teaching:

The ePortfolio provides prospective employers with the ability to view your credentials and preparation as a future teacher. The following elements are required should be included:

    1. E-portfolio description/introduction
    2. Teaching Philosophy, including:
    • Demonstration of your teaching belief
    • Instruction and Assessment Statement
    • Instruction and Management Statement
    • OPTIONAL: We are visual arts educators! Try to develop one visual image or diagram to represent your statements
    1. Professional resume.
    2. Practicum Teaching Experiences:
      This will be a page to simply demonstrate your practicum experiences. Placement descriptions and dates must be included.
    1. Documentation for secondary and elementary placements (including Setting and context–all parts, lesson plan reflections, student examples, etc.)
      At least one of the lesson plans that you share on the e-portfolio has to be associated with social justice issue(s).
    2. Page with brief description and link to journal reflections.
    3. Standards’ Elements Alignment page. Link your presentation powerpoint slides at the top of this page.
    4. Examples of personal artwork and artist statement

PHYSICAL PORTFOLIO (must have for the mock interview)

When you go to a job interview, you do not always have the chance or the Internet available to show your online teaching portfolio, so, a physical portfolio can help you present your works right away.

So, once you have your e-portfolio in hand, you can print out the documents from your e-portfolio for your physical one by adding some design. During the student teaching seminar, you will be arranged to have a mock interview by professional art educators and the physical portfolio is required to bring. Please print out the documents below and put them in a binder and then bring it along with your laptop to the class on the date of your mock interview.

**Any pages that include images have to be printed in color!!

  1. Cover for your interview portfolio
  2. Resume
  3. Teaching philosophy (The general introduction, instruction and management, instruction and assessment)
  4. Advocacy brochure for each placement. For the mock interview, you only need to provide the one advocacy brochure of one lesson plan from your first placement. However, for your final student teaching exhibition, you will need to present two advocacy brochures from BOTH placements as well.
  5. Your artist statement (Briefly introduce the art areas that you were trained or learned.)
  6. At least 10 images of your personal selected artworks with title, media, and year below the images. Must match the art areas that you mentioned in section 5. They can be arranged by year or medium, your choice. The images sizes are also your choice as long as they could clearly show the artworks’ quality and details. If you apply for a job from an online portfolio system, 10 usually is the minimum image number that it will request you to submit.
    Must include the following information for every artwork: Title, Media, and Year. Optional: Size
  7. Two FULL lesson plans. (Please provide the revised ones with your teaching reflections)

**I suggest you make a section cover page for each listed section.
