        As you develop your site, go to these pages, be sure to click the Edit page link
        to make the changes and the Save button each time you make changes to the
        page.

        As you develop this site, be sure that you include a cover letter that
        introduces you to perspective employers, your philosophy of education and
        your résumé.

        Now let’s look at the Claims and Cross-Cutting Themes page. Click on that
        link. It should take you to a screen that looks like this:




At the bottom of the page, you will see links to subpages. Your instructor will give
you a set of directions for developing this part of your e-portfolio. You will upload
documents (i.e. attach the documents to the appropriate subpages) that you have
created throughout your course of studies. You will also write reflections that
demonstrate how these documents provide evidence that you met each claim and
cross-cutting theme.

When your e-portfolio is complete, it will be assessed as a major part of your
program’s capstone requirements. So, please create a product that represents your
professional accomplishments and preparation for a teaching career.
