EFL Capstone Portfolio
This portfolio demonstrates my comprehensive understanding of the teaching of English language learners (ELLs). In my Philsophy of Teaching, I elaborate on my beliefs on how to help students thrive in a foreign language classroom and the theoretical framework on which I base my teaching practice. To address the eight standards for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), I include in the portfolio the artifacts that prove my expertise in them. In each of the eight domains-planning, instructing, assessing, identity and context, language proficiency, learning, content, and commitment and professionalism, I show my careful consideration for learners, learning context, curriculum, and assessment. In the concluding part of my portfolio, I reflect on the implications of my graduate study on my future teaching and how I plan to solve the remaining questions about the teaching profession.
