Overview: The e-portfolio project takes place over the entire course of ELA 11 and is completed in increments on Google Classroom. This assignment allows you to build a valuable e-portfolio of resources that will aid you in the college application process.

Documents are collected on Google Classroom, which will in turn save them into your Google Drive so that you can access them as needed during ELA 12 and your college application process next year.
