Digital Portfolios in HHS Wellness

Students in HHS Wellness courses are using a digital portfolio system to keep track of their fitness goals and successes.

At the beginning of 9th grade Wellness, students create their portfolio using a template of a Google Site. This template contains record sheets, self-assessments, questions and goals, and file storage for FitnessGram reports and other documents.

As students progress through Wellness classes in grades 9-12, they track their fitness progress, and include additional information related to their Wellness elective courses and other important data. Students and teachers can look back on their portfolio data to reflect on their growth.

At the end of their 12th grade year, students can copy the portfolio to a personal Google account for their continued use after high school.
