Qualitative research, which is essentially what portfolios lead to, is beneficial for teachers because it helps them reflect on what actually happens in their classrooms. I can′t think of a more powerful tool for learning and growth."
—Erin Powers, English Teacher, Paul Revere Charter Middle School, Los Angeles, CA
