Portfolio Guideline

To evaluate this unit, the students will make a FOLKLORE PORTFOLIO. Construction paper, scissors, markers, color pencils, and pictures about honduran folklore are requested in every class to work on it.

ASPECTS TO CONSIDER for this project:

      This is class work which means that at least 80% of the work must be done in class.

      Examples of each type of folklore must be shown in the portfolio through pictures

      All the Narrative Folklore examples must be handwritten

      There are four parts of the portfolio. Students will present advances each week:

  1. Friday Aug. 24 part #1 (Poetic Folklore)
  2. Friday Aug. 31 part  #2 (Social and Spiritual Folklore)
  3. Friday Sept. 7  part #3 (Narrative Folklore)
