For the final assignment, you will take all of your work from this semester and make it into a digital portfolio. Your portfolio is designed to look like a digital book that is organized so that someone who is not familiar with the class (like a potential employer) can see what you are able to do.
Follow these steps to assemble your portfolio:
1. Create a new Microsoft Word Document.
2. Insert a cover page using Microsoft Word’s cover page function. The cover page should include your name, the semester, and the name of the course. Here is an explanation of the cover page function: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-a-cover-page-79df80ec-266d-46d6-9382-6d70f1d13777
3. Leave a blank page for your table of contents. DO NOT DO THIS BY HAND! Instead, follow these directions to insert a table of contents that you can update automatically: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/create-a-table-of-contents-882e8564-0edb-435e-84b5-1d8552ccf0c0#ID0EAABAAA=Windows (Links to an external site.)
4. Cut and paste all three of your major projects into the file. This includes all parts you were asked to submit as final drafts. You do not have to submit rough drafts. The portfolio should only contain your finished work.
5. Insert a dividing page before each project, as well as before the editing exercises and case studies. On each dividing page, title the project or assignment that follows and write a minimum 2-sentence description of the assignment. The purpose of the description is to provide the context of your projects to someone who is not familiar with the course so that they “get” what the assignment asked you to do.
6. Continuously paginate the entire document with a footer AND update your table of contents.
7. Save your document as a PDF file. You now have a portfolio that you can send to potential employers as well as others who want to see a sample of your technical writing capabilities. I need to add more information after the question is being taken
