About the session

Portfolios in the IB Language A courses are an ideation space where students can jot down their interpretations and critiques of the literary works they study. Students also record their learning progress over the two years of the course in their portfolios. In this Q&A, experienced Language A educators will respond to your questions about the learner portfolios, how you can help students structure them, and record their learning consistently.
