Building a Cooperative Education Portfolio with the New Curriculum - Draft
The myBlueprint Support Team created a Building a Co-op Portfolio Lesson Plan to better support Ontario educators in meeting the expectations found in Strand A and B of the revamped Cooperative Education Curriculum.
This lesson plan will help students create a co-op portfolio to display, reflect, and derive meaning from their experiential learning opportunities, develop skills and abilities related to an occupation while applying them to real-life situations, and apply their learning and hands-on experience to make the most informed decisions about their future.
This lesson plan includes:
A guide for teachers with instructions on how to introduce the portfolio-building project to students
A detailed portfolio-checklist of the different types of artifacts students will be adding to their portfolio throughout their co-op experience, including suggested reflection prompts
An exemplar portfolio (PDF) that aligns with the suggested portfolio checklist
A template Student Learning Plan
