EFL Teaching Portfolio
After I graduate from Peabody College, I expect myself to work as a EFL educator in China. Hence, the first part of this portfolio would be my visions working professionally as an EFL educator. There are three philosophies of teaching that I would want myself to prioritize: 1) identify learners identities, particularly in thinking how their community literacies might be helpful for L2 learning/acquisition; 2) bring learners existing knowledge to class; 3) train learners to think bi-/multilingually. The second part would be the artifact analyses in which I select my professional work from the learning trajectories in the past two years and conduct analysis via the lens of professional knowledge areas and TESOL domains. Last but not least, I would articulate the application to practice part. In this part, I connect my philosophies of teaching and artifact analyses to the implications in the field of education and make further considerations.
