(B) Involving My Students

I introduced the project to my students through the following lesson, facilitated by this PowerPoint:

Process Portfolios

I must admit that I was skeptical when I first shared my plans with my students, but after they responded so positively, I began to relax.  They were so enthusiastic, in fact, that I was unable to select just one class on which to focus my research.  Instead, I gathered and analyzed data from all four classes, and all 104 students, although at times I selected individual classes from which to report the data.
