An educational portfolio is a collection of evidence and reflections documenting one's competence and accomplishments in the teaching field. Entries for the Developing Portfolio demonstrate implementation of effective practice in planning, instruction, and classroom management during the first semester of the Preparing Responsive Educators Program (PREP) internship and the Master's of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Professional Studies internship.
The College of Education will use your portfolio as evidence that you have attained the professional education teaching standards identified by Northwestern State University and the Louisiana Department of Education (LDE).
Academic integrity means engaging in scholarly activity that is conducted honestly and responsibly. It includes a commitment not to be involved in falsification, misrepresentation or deception in the preparation of the student teaching portfolio. The submitted student teaching portfolio must be your own work and in your own words. You are expected to act with personal and professional integrity at all times.
