Abstract

This portfolio conveys some of the author’s principal views regarding second language (L2) teaching and learning. These views have been developed and informed by studying the research literature, personal language learning experience, language teaching observations, and language teaching experience.

The first section, teaching perspectives, contains an explanation of the environment envisioned by the author while writing this portfolio, his teaching philosophy statement, and a summary of classroom observations. The second section, research perspectives, contains two research papers and an annotated bibliography that support the author’s language teaching philosophy.
