Capstone EFL Portfolio
This teaching portfolio serves as a summary of my learning and development as a teacher throughout the program. In this capstone, I reflect on my teaching practices and further prepare myself to become a qualified teacher in future teaching contexts. This portfolio consists of three sections. First, I propose my philosophy of teaching, which values inclusiveness and collaboration in learning environment as foundation, understanding of learners’ knowledge, experiences and needs as basics, and authentic communicative teaching as guidance of language teaching. Then, focusing on some of the work I have completed over the semesters which includes studies of different learning contexts and learners, and lesson plans and teaching materials for my practicum, I analyze how these artifacts demonstrate my understandings and fulfillments in terms of the professional knowledge areas and TESOL standards. Lastly, I reflect on my past experiences and teaching practices with reference to my teaching philosophy and consider my future prospect as a language teacher and potential ways of further development.
