Final Portfolio

Our final assignment for the semester asks you to compile the work you’ve done throughout the semester and to reflect on it. Your portfolio should be submitted as one document saved as one file. Your portfolio should include the following and should be organized in this order:

  • Title page
  • Table of contents
  • Reflection statement
  • Final draft of your work for the semester
  • Drafts of your work

If you worked on multiple pieces of writing throughout the semester, you can either include all the final drafts together and then all the earlier drafts together, or you can move through each piece of writing individually (both final draft and earlier drafts for each). Your reflection statement (700-1000 words) should address the following prompts:

  • How did you develop as a writer this semester? What aspects of your work were most and least effective this semester?
  • How did you develop as a writer during your time at Bonaventure? What aspects of your work are you most proud of? Where do you see opportunities for further development? Point to specific examples from your experience where applicable.
  • What are your thoughts on life after graduation? What are you excited about? What concerns do you have? What are your hopes?
