    Give Every Portfolio item a Title

    Argument Title

    Review your In-text citations for compliance.

    They need Author or Title or Publication (or any combination), Said language, and a QuotationParaphrase, or Summary.

    This is INCORRECT:

    This is CORRECT:Compliant APA

    Make Separate posts for Short Arguments

    First the Initial Post

    Causal Argument

    Then a New Post for the Revised Argument
    (Shows Responsiveness to Feedback)

    Causal Rewrite

    Check Bibliography for Compliance

    Entries need APA Bibliographic notations, Links to the Sources, and thorough descriptions of Background Material and How I Used it.


    Check Reflective Statement for Compliance

    Entries must specific descriptions of changes you made to your work in response to feedback or detailed descriptions of how you met course objectives. Make references and links to the posts that best demonstrate your accomplishment of the Core Values.

    -be specific when you ask for feedback
    -title your essays, the blog post title doesn’t count
    -A good title distinguishes and defines, puts things into categories
    -if you start with according to, that’s the said language. “according to ____, she said” is incorrect
    -if you’re quoting someone who’s quoting someone, make sure who’s saying what is clear
    -each argument needs a separate post
    -the rewrites also get their own posts
    -wordpress can show you revisions in the edit mode. You can even compare versions
    -number your sources and make sure you have a link
    -link to your own work in the reflection
    -add all of the portfolio items to the portfolio by going into edit and putting the posts into your specific portfolio category
