TEACHER PORTFOLIO FERNANDO FONSECA

Teaching philosophy:

1. Which approaches were the most relatable to you and the way you teach?

I must say that I really found all of them interesting since all of them have valuable
pros depending on the objective the group (teacher and students have in mind).
However, some of the most important for me are:

- Direct approach: for this one is focus on the learning of a language by the use
of it in its main countries instead of being focus on the translation of ancient texts.

- Audio-lingual approach: since this one is focus on the speaking production.


From my point of view speaking another language is one of the most challenging
steps in the process of language acquisition. And in my job it is fundamental to
develop excellent speaking abilities. Even if the reading approach is another very
important approach in my job since some of my students are going to be
administrative assistants.

2. Why did these approaches appeal to you more than others?

The main reason when choosing an approach is the objective of my students. As


they are going to work in assistant position the principal skills they have to develop
are speaking and reading.

3. Were there specific ideas or aspects from certain approaches that you liked?

Well, they were, indeed. They audio-lingual approach surprised me when I realized
that I was using it without knowing that before. I liked it because I am use to work
with an audio material set of lesson so that I can make my students speak in a
short period of time. In other words, what I really like of this approach is the fast
they it offers us when we need our students to talk.

4. What were they and why did you like them?

As I pointed out before the most I liked about them is they possibilities they offer us
to help our students to talk and read in a short period of time.
5. Who will you be teaching? Elementary, middle or high school students?
University students? Business executives? Etc.?

I am actually teaching university students but unfortunately due to the bad


education systems they have here I have to start with them form the very
beginning.

6. How will your teaching style best meet the needs of your students and
motivate them to learn?

From my experience what have helped me to get my students interest is the fast
way I have to make them learn. Principally to make them communicate with
estrangers in a short period of time.

Peer-graded Assignment: Teaching Techniques

1. Which techniques do you use in lesson planning or teaching?

It really depends on the topic I have to teach. For instance if I need my student to
speak I use the audio-lingual approach technics and so on.

2. How much time do you spend teaching and how much time do you spend
allowing students to practice language? Why?

In my current job I have to teach two hours in a row. I have 8 groups; two per day.
During my classes I used to let my students talk and perhaps 20% of the time, but
since I took the last parts of this specialization I try to organize my activities so that
I speak 20% and my students participate de 80% remaining. Im convinced that my
students results now are far better than before.

3. How do you motivate students on a daily basis?

As I have to teach them technical English or English focused on job situations my


students are motivated since they enroll the class. What I can do as a bonus is to
create well done learning guides with a wide variety of activities and strategies to
facilitate their learning process.
4. Do you use warm language, teacher talk, language learning strategies, etc.? If
so, explain how you use them in class.

Maybe I use they more often now than before talking the last courses of this
specialization. I use warm language since I start my classes motivating my
students to participate, giving them the sense they are safe in my class and letting
them know they can make mistakes without worrying about being flawed.

5. What are some warm up/guided practice/independent practice/assessment


activities you use? Explain how you integrate these activities into your lesson plans
and how they are beneficial to the students.

I use different activities in my classes depending on the groups, the subjects they
are learning, the level they have etc. Nevertheless I mention some examples:

- Warm up activity: I urge my students to relate the vocabulary they have to


new situations or new vocabulary which is necessary in the class, for instance
when learning about professions I bring some images and I ask them to talk in
groups as much as possible about all they know about the pictures.

- Guided practice: before letting they start with their individual practice I explain
to them in detail the whole activity giving them example they can understand.

- Finally, I always ask them to do an activity related to the topic with are
learning trying to develop all the four language skills.

All of these steps are important in the language acquisition progress as they allow
students to get a better understanding and appropriation of knowledge.

6. How do you evaluate and assess students? Why?

It depend on the topic, I am fond of production such as writings, speaking in role


plays. But I also use pair evaluation, self-evaluation, etc.

Grammar Component
On this part the teacher will ask students to pay attention at all
the sentences they recognize as simple past in the first
paragraph in order to make them conscious about it while
reading.

Once when I was six years old I saw a magnificent picture in a


book, called True Stories from Nature, about the primeval forest. It
was a picture of a boa constrictor in the act of swallowing an
animal. Here is a copy of the drawing. In the book it said: "Boa
constrictors swallow their prey whole, without chewing it. After
that they are not able to move, and they sleep through the six months that they need for
digestion." I pondered deeply, then, over the adventures of the jungle. And after some work
with a colored pencil I succeeded in making my first drawing. My Drawing Number One. It
looked like this:

Now, the teacher will explain to them this tense giving some
examples:
+ I was six
- I was not/wasnt a grown-up
? Was my drawing nice?

On this part students will pay attention to similar sentences underlining them

I showed my masterpiece to the grown-ups, and asked them whether the drawing frightened
them. But they answered: "Frighten? Why should anyone be frightened by a hat?" My drawing
was not a picture of a hat. It was a picture of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant. But since
the grown-ups were not able to understand it, I made another drawing: I drew the inside of the
boa constrictor, so that the grown-ups could see it clearly. They always need to have things
explained. My Drawing Number Two looked like this:

Now, the teacher will focus on the simple past with verbs different from verb to be
Examples:
+ I gave up what might have been a magnificent career as a painter.
- I did not want to be a grown-up.
? Did I abandon my dream as a painter?

The grown-ups' response, this time, was to advise me to lay aside my drawings of boa
constrictors, whether from the inside or the outside, and devote myself instead to geography,
history, arithmetic and grammar. That is why, at the age of six, I gave up what might have
been a magnificent career as a painter. I had been disheartened by the failure of my Drawing
Number One and my Drawing Number Two. Grown-ups never understand anything by
themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
So then I chose another profession, and learned to pilot airplanes. I have flown a little over all
parts of the world; and it is true that geography has been very useful to me. At a glance I can
distinguish China from Arizona. If one gets lost in the night, such knowledge is valuable. In
the course of this life I have had a great many encounters with a great many people who have
been concerned with matters of consequence. I have lived a great deal among grown-ups. I
have seen them intimately, close at hand. And that hasn't much improved my opinion of them.
Whenever I met one of them who seemed to me at all clear-sighted, I tried the experiment of
showing him my Drawing Number One, which I have always kept. I would try to find out, so,
if this was a person of true understanding. But, whoever it was, he, or she, would always say:
"That is a hat." Then I would never talk to that person about boa constrictors, or primeval
forests, or stars. I would bring myself down to his level. I would talk to him about bridge, and
golf, and politics, and neckties. And the grown-up would be greatly pleased to have met such a
sensible man.

Finally, students will create some questions for their classmates and they will also answer
them in the simple past.
Independent Practice R W L S
Once the teacher has finishes the first chapter
aloud, students in pair, will choose a chapter from
