Short description of the presentation
This presentation will first address the importance of an explicit
presentation of the National Standards for Foreign Languages (5 C's) to
students. Teachers should discuss the 5 C's with students, instead of
just quietly implementing the 5 C's into their teaching. To assess
student performance on the 5 C's, ePortfolios are ideal, so in the
second part of the paper, the benefits of ePortfolios will be
discussed. The portfolios include compositions, graphics, video clips,
and sound files. WebCT's Student Presentation tool works well for
students to create their ePortfolios. The presenter will also share
students' reactions to the project.
