Grade 9 Portfolio Project Requirements

Grade 9 Portfolio Project Requirements

 

Academic Preparation

Teachers have collaborated and planned to provide students with opportunities to demonstrate each characteristic in the Profile of an Awsaj Graduate (see p. 3) during this year. Students must choose one assignment or test from each category on their Grade Level Guide (see Appendix A) to include in their portfolio.

 

Career Development

During Portfolio Time this year, students will complete a 180-question Interest Profiler assessment online to help them identify careers that match their interests. The website that includes the survey also links to written information and videos about each career so that students can learn more about careers that interest them. Students will be expected to include in their portfolio a printed copy of the results of their Interest Profiler and a list of at least three jobs they might like, including at least two reasons why they might like each of those jobs.

 

Service

Students in Grade 9 are required to complete 10 hours of community service during this school year. They may complete this community service at any organization, including Awsaj Academy.

To receive credit for their volunteer hours, students must submit a log which indicates dates and hours worked (see Appendix B). Each entry on the log must be signed by the person who supervised that particular volunteer time.
