You will be responsible for putting together a PowerPoint/Prezi Presentation of your best work from this year. This will be a final showcase of your work, and will be our way of determining all of the learning you’ve done over the school year. You will present your work to me privately, and together we will determine your overall mark for the year. You will have 4-5 minutes to present your portfolio. If you miss your appointment you must re-schedule me - this is a mandatory exit interview and a final grade will not be awarded until you have presented your portfolio to me in person. Your portfolio will include major projects, weekly photo challenges, favorite photos, and a review of your website which will be worth 20% of your grade – make sure everything is updated and posted to your website.
