2 What is a Portfolio?  As defined by Paulson & Paulson in 1991, a portfolio tells a story. “ A portfolio is the story of knowing. Knowing about things...Knowing oneself...Knowing an audience... Portfolios are students’ own stories of what they know, why they believe they know it, and why others should be of the same opinion. A portfolio is opinion backed by fact...Students prove what they know with samples of their work.”

Working Portfolio: An intentional collection of work guided by specific learning objectives.
