Portfolios to Assess Literacy and Second Language: An Annotated Bibliography
By: Sarah Elaine Eaton
Published by the National Adult Literacy Database
The author notes that the practice of using portfolios for second-language teaching has increased in popularity while, almost simultaneously, there has been a rise in the use of similar frameworks in the field of literacy. However, there is little collaboration between practitioners in each of the two fields.
This annotated bibliography is an attempt to collect, select and share resources that may be helpful to professionals working in both sectors, including teaching professionals and researchers who specialize in second-language teaching, language arts and first- and second-language literacy.
The author has divided the sources reviewed into three categories: practical classroom resources; video and multimedia resources; and scholarly articles and related research materials.
