Personal Social Capital Portfolio

Students come into our classes with lots of different influences (both good and bad) in their lives that they may not even realize they have. This Social Capital Portfolio worksheet can be used as a good ice breaker on the first day of class to help students realize all the support that is right at their fingertips. Further this is a good tool for us as instructors to learn about our students’ experiental background and personal support circles (or lack thereof). Finally this tool helps identify areas where students may need assistance from other facets of the college (writing lab, counseling, etc.).
