EDU 154 Program Portfolio - Educational Assistant Certificate

Course Description

The Program Portfolio is designed to bring together your understanding of the roles and responsibilities of an educational assistant through personal reflection and thought. It is a written expression of your knowledge and skills relevant to the position of an educational assistant, and provides you with an opportunity to evaluate your efficiency in the classroom and effectiveness with students. As a summary of program and personal experiences, your portfolio documents your achievements in becoming an excellent educator. The portfolio may be evaluative, descriptive and reflective, and will describe your assisting philosophy, assisting innovations and other accomplishments.
