Final Portfolio

Requirements & Grading Rubric


For this final assessment you will be held responsible for demonstrating your developing
understanding of maps. The purpose of this assignment if for you to understand how your knowledge
of maps grew, and to document that growth.
It is up to you to choose three pieces of work from this unit that you believe best demonstrate your
growth in understanding. These three items may be from any day and any learning activity we did as a
class. Together, these three artifacts should represent a timeline showcasing how your understanding of
maps progressed.
With these three items you may choose to do either of the following:
- Write a traditional 5-7 sentence paragraph explaining how these artifacts demonstrate your
developing understanding of maps.
- Write an index card and attach it to each artifact with an explanation of how this artifact
demonstrates your developing understanding of maps.
- Questions to consider when answering:
o What did I learn from this activity?
o What concept did this map help me understand?
o How does this artifact show my original understanding of maps OR how I learned
something new?
Besides these three artifacts you also must include the following items:
- Your final map
- Your final map explanation
