An Honors portfolio is exemplary in the variety of artifacts. It has sincere and insightful reflection on the work, and is expertly put together. Receiving Honors, outside of the satisfaction it would give the senior, gives recognition to students for producing something more meaningful than points or a letter grade. Students will receive recognition and a medal at the graduation ceremony for their Honors portfolio, as well as leave high school with something that well represents their capabilities and talents. In addition, Honors Portfolio will be notated on the student transcript.
To have a CHANCE to receive HONORS on your Senior Exit Portfolio, you MUST:
• Have the exemplary, sincere, insightful, portfolio described above.
• Include title page, table of contents, and closure. (See SEP packet for more info)
• Take part in the Oral Interview process.
What is an Oral Interview?
An oral interview allows a student to demonstrate more of his/her personality and sincerity than just the compilation in the portfolio
can do. You should consider doing an oral presentation if you think that it would make your portfolio stronger. The format is similar to a
job interview…dress professionally and be prepared to answer probing questions. Discuss with your mentor the advantages of making this presentation. The oral interview is required to receive Honors. Please note that presenting your portfolio orally does not guarantee Honors recognition. The oral interviews will take place on date to be determined. You must notify Ms. Burns and your Mentor of your intention to do the orals. Interviews will be no longer than 15 minutes.
