Although there has been much theorizing about the use of portfolios in alternative assessment, very little has been written of practical value to mathematics teachers. Therese Kuhs reverses this trend, offering a comprehensive guide that not only suggests different ways mathematics teachers can use portfolios, but also demonstrates how portfolios can be explained to students and parents. Kuhs presents individual success stories and examples that together show what multifaceted tools portfolios are and how they can be used to their best advantage. In the process, she answers many of the questions teachers are asking, such as: What do mathematics portfolios look like? What should be put in them? Should they be graded and if so how? What are the benefits of using them? Who keeps track of them? Clear descriptions of different types of portfolios are presented as models to help teachers identify the kinds of portfolios they might have their students keep. The book also provides strategies on how to organize portfolios for different levels of schooling and recommendations on how to get started. Measure for Measure is based on the belief that portfolios should not be fat grade books--that the process is far more important then the portfolios themselves. Effective use of portfolios over time will not only help teachers learn more about their students, but also help students learn more about themselves and their understanding of mathematics. This book will help inservice and preservice teachers achieve these same results in their own classrooms.
