Podcast of the First Portfolio Meeting -- June 11, 2008

These 9 files are a podcast of the June 11, 2008 portfolio kickoff meeting. Each chunk is between 10-15 minutes, and covers the entire 2 hour meeting. The meeting was recorded in chunks to decrease the size of the file. The podcast is unedited, and there is some scratchiness to the recordings, but overall the quality seems okay.

Part 5 and Part 6 are specific to the Level 1 small group discussion, so if you're not teaching Level 1 this summer, just skip them and go on to Parts 7 - 9.

At the meeting, we

Walked through the portfolio components found in the gray folder (hard copies),
Talked about extensive reading and various resources for reading,
Met in level groups to look closely at the instructions & cover sheet and to brainstorm how to actually implement the portfolio this summer, and
Identified questions & ideas across all the levels.
Set meeting dates for the summer.

A summary of the meeting will be emailed to all participants and also posted to the Outlook public folders.
