A personal portfolio is for at-home use for self-discovery and improvement of instruction. Portfolios help you to better understand yourself. They make your thinking visible and your ideas explicit. This portfolio is to be kept private like a journal.
Your personal portfolio should be filled with rich, detailed information about yourself. That information becomes progressively more streamlined as you share it with family, teachers, mentors, private institutions and government agencies.

•a portrait of you
•as shown by a reflective selection of work
•with a goal, a theme and an intended audience.
