11:00 AM-12:30 PM
This course, conducted in Portuguese, is designed to provide students with advanced-level review of Portuguese grammar and writing. Students choose the context and topics for this review. That is to say, if a student has an interest in history, music, politics, business, environment, etc., there is flexibility built into the course in that all students will be able to build and improve grammar within the context of those subjects. A large portion of this is achieved through the creation of individual portfolios, providing evidence of progress. Portfolios can be any number of approved projects that are agreed upon between the student and the instructor.
The final grade is determined by the completion of a personal portfolio, based on the pattern of the Learning Record Online that is used by the Computer Writing and Research Lab at UT. (For a complete description, see the web site
