Final portfolio


This portfolio brings together a sampling of works you have completed over the semester and six new documents. Its intent is that you display the knowledge, skills, and professionalism you have developed through the course. Read all instructions carefully, and let me know if you have questions.

Submit the finished portfolio in a pocket folder (not a "binder" or notebook), with all items printed on paper.

Number the pages and include a portfolio title page and table of contents.
