TCP – TECHNICAL COMMUNICATION & PORTFOLIO
TCP ENGLISH CLASS
The Technical Communication and Portfolio program at Capital Region Career & Technical School is great because it gets you, the student, English Class credit in your CTE class! That means you never have to write a paper on “Why George Killed Lenny at The End Of The Book.”
In the end, we are going to have a portfolio that makes us look valuable to future employers. In order to make this class really work, there are a few rules about saving that we need to follow…
RULES FOR SUCCESS IN TCP:
1) SAVE ALL WORK IN DIGITAL FORM! Everything we write is for our Career Portfolio. This means you must always save digital copies of what you write. (If you do not have these at the end of the year to be printed out again nice and clean, you will not be able to complete the portfolio.)
2) WHERE TO SAVE WORK – Never save to the school computer’s C:drive! Always select “SAVE AS.” Click on “COMPUTER” from the pull-down menu, open and save to the H: folder. The H:Drive is cloud-based, and will be accessible from any school computer you use, after logging in. It is also a good idea to save your work to a flash drive, or a storage space cloud service like DropBox or Google Docs.
3) SAVE ALL GRADED PAPERS – All graded, handed-back papers will be further edited for the final portfolio draft at the end of the year. Most assignments can be resubmitted for additional points (see GRADING). When you get your papers back from the teacher, after any possible editing, immediately put them in your binder. In May, you will make further edits to these for your final portfolio!
