Shi: Capstone EFL Portfolio
Shi, Yuwei Jr.
This capstone consists of three major parts under the theme of teaching English as a second language. In the first part, philosophy of teaching, I state the theories that I’ve learned and set as the basement for my future English language teaching during the past two academic years at Peabody College. I present the theories for Language acquisition and learning that influence me the most heavily, theories about planning, instruction, and assessment that serve as the guidance of my future teaching practice, and my beliefs about the standards for commitment and professionalism to be a qualified English language teacher. In the second part, professional knowledge, I presented and analyzed various forms of artifacts which reflect the professional knowledge I’ve obtained and the abilities I’ve developed in domains of planning, instructing, assessing, identity and context, language proficiency, learning, content, and commitment and professionalism. In the third part, application to practice, I write about changes of my beliefs in the about English language teaching during the past two academic years and the implications for my future English language teaching that I’ve got by reviewing my academic learning and teaching practicing experience.
