The HIS HUSKIES Legacy Project

The HIS HUSKIES Legacy Project, a student-centered digital portfolio assignment, begins in grade 9 and finishes just prior to graduation.
In this long-spanning project, students document their growth and achievements through Hokkaido International School's HUSKIES, an acronym for the school's character development program, which can be seen below.

This site serves as a structural example for students to follow as they build their own digital portfolios, where they will add anecdotal evidence, artifacts of learning, and connective reflections to demonstrate their own growth as a global citizen.

Please use the centered HUSKIES navigation above to explore the structure of this site, making sure to structure your own legacy site the same way.
