What is the Learner Portfolio?
The learner portfolio will include both digital and handwritten work.
DIGITAL: Students will submit work to Google Classroom and will use Google docs, drawings, and slides for their digital portfolio.
HANDWRITTEN: Students should also have a composition book for taking notes, brainstorming ideas, and making inferences and observations.
IB requires that all students have a Learner Portfolio for DP Language and Literature as a way to explore your own writing and expression. The goal is to develop your interests in writing, but also to be reflective as a writer.
Learner Portfolio is a place to ....
explore ideas and styles of writing
experiment with your writing, taking risks and trying out different genres
challenge yourself with what you read, write, and consider
include observations and collect ideas and interests
connect with global issues and central concepts from the course
track your learning and progress

have a place to include ideas to help you with IB assessments (internal and external)
communicate and reflect on your own individual style as a writer as well as the style of writers you study
take agency in your own writing
