LL353 Advanced Composition
Portfolio Reading Committee
Dear Portfolio Reading Committee:
In the first paragraph, state the topic and position of your portfolio [Example: My portfolio topic is the federal income tax and my position is that it should not be eliminated because the money is needed for effective schools, affordable health care, and a strong national defense]. Describe intended audience [Example: My intended audience is people who are undecided about the federal income tax]. State all the pieces you have included in your portfolio (see page 1 of portfolio instructions).
In the second paragraph, state how your writing and information literacy skills (research, APA format, revising) have improved as a result of this portfolio project. Explain how your writing has also developed by adding primary research (the interview) to the essay process and what you learned by completing the interview.
In the third paragraph, describe one or more new concepts learned in class (other than the interview), such as concepts from the textbook. Explain how these concepts and this class have helped you come closer to achieving your personal and professional writing goals.
