Capstone EFL Portfolio
This portfolio is a final reflection of what I have learnt in my two-year master study in the English Language Learners program at Peabody College, Vanderbilt University. In the past two years, I finished ten classes, four practicums and one independent study. This portfolio helps me to link up my teaching philosophy, my actual learning on theories, my assignments that I finished and my future teaching implications. This portfolio contains three sections: philosophy of teaching, artifact analysis and implications and future considerations. My philosophy of teaching expands under four categories: students and their communities, the curriculum, sociocultural, psychological and political variables to facilitate English learning, and partnerships and advocacy. In the artifact analysis, I provide five artifacts from different class assignments as supporting evidence for my understanding of four professional knowledge areas: the learner, learning context, curriculum, and assessment.The last implication section goes over the teaching identity I want to set up in my future teaching, the challenges that I consider I might face and a simple overview of how to continue improving myself as a language teacher.
