This is an example of student digital portfolio I have used with my students for several years. I have other documents that had directions and some video, presentation, and other examples for the students to follow. I could not load all of those documents in this source. If you would like them, I can share them with you also through Edmodo if you'd like.

Begin the school year asking students to help complete this document. Students can also take this home and have parents help complete the document. Students, depending on how many years they have been in school, know the jobs of everyone involved. A chart/poster can be made once it is filled in and posted in the classroom. This poster will act as a reminder when a student forgets their job.
