It’s important that you have all your chapters and artifacts ready to go before you begin uploading them to your final self-portrait. To that end, you need to have a very organized system for keeping track of all your files and documents.

  • Follow your teacher’s instructions to set up a folder system to keep track of your chapters and artifacts.

Take the rest of the Work Time to work on your Self-Portrait Project.

  • Option 1 :Writing . Do you still need to work on your written chapter? Do you have an additional written chapter you would like to include (this could be prose, poetry, song lyrics, and so on)? Do you need to add additional artifacts to your work? You may spend this time working on your writing.
  • Option 2 :Editing . Do you want to refine work you have already written? You may spend this time editing and revising your work.
  • Option 3 :Multimedia Editing . Do you have photographs, slideshows, video, or audio that you need to edit for inclusion in your self-portrait? You may spend this time editing these files.
  • Option 4 :Research and Gathering . Do you have to do any research or find resources for your self-portrait? Think about artifacts you may wish to include: videos, links to news articles, locations for maps, and so on. You may spend this time finding and documenting these resources.
  • Option 5 :Other? What other tasks do you have to accomplish? Do you have to draw or otherwise create images for your self-portrait? Do you have to transcribe any interviews you conducted?
