Capstone ESL Portfolio
This portfolio contains three sections. The first section, statement of teaching philosophy, describes theories and ideas I support for ELL education. It starts with Piaget’s Constructivism and Vygostky’s Sociocultural Theory. While narrowing down to Zone of Proximal Development and Culturally Responsive Teaching, I will also add my own understanding and demonstrate how these theoretical works forms my teaching philosophy. The second section listed 7 domains in ELL education and their related TESOL standards. Artifacts like course project, academic paper, and practicum experience are used to address my learning of these important education aspects at Peabody College. The last part acts as a summary of this ESL portfolio, which identifies my big takeaways from the two-year program learning.
