Capstone: EFL Teaching Portfolio
As a teacher candidate, the EFL Portfolio will demonstrate my understanding of teaching philosophy and the knowledge of how to best serve my students in the future teaching career. The Portfolio first presents the three essential theories-funds of knowledge, culturally responsive teaching and constructivism, which provides a framework to analyze how I implement high-quality instruction. In my second part, the artifact analysis consists of four professional knowledge areas in TESOL domain: Learner, the Learning Contexts, Curriculum and Assessment. In each domain, I incorporate the past teaching and learning experiences to specifically explain the application of philosophy in my practices by providing different artifacts. In addition, I summarize and reflect on those tangible experiences, exemplifying both strengths and weaknesses that could be improved in my future teaching. In the final section, Implication and Future Consideration, I include my expectation of being a professional and caring teacher, the challenges ahead as a Chinese EFL teacher and the areas that need improvement.
