Everyone needs to update their digital portfolios with their first submission. If you plan to use your dystopian trailer you can find the embed code on our CLASS VIMEO ACCOUNT. You’ll need to copy/paste the embed code into your blog using the html option.
If your first submission was an essay please use your Scribd account to embed your document into your portfolio. And please remember to use the READ MORE option when adding your reflection. Add the READ MORE page break right after the first paragraph of your reflection. Check out Audrey’s Portfolio to see how the Read More page break should look.
