Over this academic year, I’ve been trying to articulate what I think would make a successful portfolio of materials and experiences that would help FDIP applicants land an internship or part-time position in a community college. The goal of creating this portfolio is to demonstrate to a potential mentor, department chair, and dean of your readiness to enter the classroom.
Here are overviews of what to include in these portfolios:
While a mentor would provide invaluable support when developing these portfolios, applicants and interns can also begin to research and create them on their own. These worksheets are suggestions, and if you think there need to be any changes, please do not hesitate to contact the coordinator with your ideas!
