    SOCIAL STUDIES EXAMPLES - The SAMPLES posted in the table above have been provided as possible examples of what each of the three sections of a honors portfolio for might look like. By providing these SAMPLES the social studies section at NCDPI is in no way communicating that these documents are perfect, that they are the only models to be considered, or that their framework and structure should be copied for the development of a teacher’s social studies honors portfolio. These SAMPLES are not intended to be documents to be replicated step by step.
    These SAMPLES are intended to provide examples of how the three sections of a quality honors portfolio for a social studies course might present the written rationale justifying how the honors level course is different from a standard level course. Each SAMPLE is intended to show how what is written and provided as evidence makes it clear to the reader how and why the course extends and enriches beyond the NCSCOS while providing academic rigor appropriate for advanced learners. The SAMPLES provided are just that, SAMPLES. Link to the table to access Exemplar Samples.
