This portfolio is a compilation of second language teaching research and
ideas put together during the author’s time as a MSLT student. It includes a
personal teaching philosophy supported by three related artifacts. It also contains
an annotated bibliography with an overview of some of the research examined
during her time in the program. Her personal teaching philosophy underscores
how communicative language teaching can help students learn language through
meaningful use. The artifacts suggest ways to implement communicative
language teaching by teaching language in content, using multimedia authentic
texts, and teaching sociolinguistics and pragmatics.
