Teach students to create a filing system of their work in all of their classes. They can save the work they are most proud of, or all assignments to show growth over time. It is nice to have students go back and reflect on what they have done so they can see evidence of their own learning and growth. A written or verbal (electronic) reflection is a perfect way to express those ideas.
