  1. 1. TEA Fellow:<br />SoeungSopha<br />Content area: <br />English as Foreign Language (EFL)<br />Portfolio<br />The Kingdom of Cambodia<br /> Nation Religion King<br />
  2. 2. 1. Introduction<br />This is the classroom environment which I am in. Students have less chances to interact or share ideas. Learner-based approach is very difficult to implement<br />
  3. 3. Students are squashed in row<br />
  4. 4. 2. Philosophy of Education<br />“ Be the leader in the classroom can ensure the success of learning and teaching”<br />“ Lecturing is better than asking students to share because it will make so much noise in class”<br />“ Grammar-Translation Approach is the only way to help students learn”<br />
  5. 5. 3. Growth in Different Areas<br />
  6. 6. 3.1. Teaching Strategies<br />** Demonstrations of best practices including group-centered approach<br />Seats are arranged in groups<br />Students are provided enough <br /> time to work<br />All questions are organized<br /> Activities are planned and <br /> arranged in order<br />Roles of teacher are to give support and feedback<br />
  7. 7. Students are given choice<br />Students are provided enough scaffolding via various techniques<br />Students are always given chance to answer and do all tasks before exact answers/ideas are given<br />Factual and real life examples are used to explain <br />Instructional differentiation is almost always used <br />
  8. 8. ** Culturally relevant teaching strategies<br />Make use of students via asking them to share their understanding or the differences and the similarities of their own experience in their culture <br />
  9. 9. ** Action Research<br /><ul><li>The reasons why research is needed
  10. 10. What action research look like
  11. 11. How to avoid plagiarisms
  12. 12. How to do action research </li></li></ul><li>** Self and Student Assessment<br />Teacher reflects on daily plan to see how much she/he has achieved her/his objectives and to see what should be changed for the next class.<br />Exit ticket is used.<br />Presentation is needed to see how much students have learned.<br />
  13. 13. ** Assessment Techniques<br />There two types of assessment which I have learned here:<br />Bloom’s Taxonomy: <br />
  14. 14. ** Collaborative teaching<br />Inspire the ideas of working in group<br />Lessons are more effective and efficiency<br />Gain more ideas in terms of planning lessons and presenting lessons and flexibility in teaching<br />Build up confidence<br />Students get more supports <br />
  15. 15. 3.2. Instructional Materials<br />Post-it<br />Flip chart<br />Marker pens <br /> (various color is the best)<br />Computers<br />Internet access in classroom<br />LCD<br />Enough course books<br />
  16. 16. 3.3. Effective Learning Environment<br />There barrier between students and teacher is fluid and flexible but with limits<br />Students call teacher by last name<br />Teacher and students can share their personal feelings and not afraid to talk about their family<br />Relationship is like one family<br />Students can tell the teacher what they don’t like or can express when they are not happy with what the teacher has done<br />.<br />
  17. 17. 3.4. Role of Culture; Diversity<br />Diversity of the culture creates more challenges for teachers<br />BUT<br />Autonomous learning will be created<br />Students will learn faster and more effectively because teens enjoy new things<br />Students will be so flexible in their life <br />Students can adapt themselves to different situation easily in life.<br />
  18. 18. 3.5. Technology<br />LCD is used to make accessibilities in teaching and learning<br />Internet access is available in school campus<br />Students are allowed to use internet when they get stuck with some questions<br />
  19. 19. 4. Synthesis<br />“ Getting the students involve and let them do activities in class is the best way to get them to learn”<br />“ Everyone in the classroom is the learner so I have to give more chance to my students to present the class something which they know about topic I am going to teach them”<br />“ The way to success in learning and teaching is the engagement of both sides on the same task”<br />
  20. 20. 5. Implication<br />+ How I will use approach in classroom<br />Providing enough time to work<br />Stand on the role of facilitator and monitor<br />Giving choice to students to choose task they want to do<br />Providing more scaffolding<br />Using instructional differentiation <br />Using factual and real life examples to explain or link with the daily lesson<br />Exit slip<br /> . Advisement session<br />
  21. 21. + Gain activities / strategies / techniques used<br />Group discussion<br />Presentation <br />Listening and ask for more information<br />Think-pair share<br />Read aloud<br /> . <br />
  22. 22. + Interaction<br />Assigning task and activities to make students more actively involved in the lesson<br />Open the discussion together<br />Providing support is part of their learning and teaching<br />Creating family relationship in the learning environment<br />
  23. 23. + Classroom management<br />Making sure that all students have chance to speak<br />Students’ achievements are displayed on the wall<br />Exit slip box is placed near the door<br />There is a word wall<br />
  24. 24. Estimated difficulties in applying these ideas<br />1- Advisement session: <br />using the fixed classroom cannot be done<br />spend much time to help students and colleagues to see advantages of this session<br />be hard to motivate and encourage teachers to facilitate the session<br />+ Plans to deal with these difficulties<br /> . Make suggestion to principal to use library as an advisement classroom<br /> . Put “Advisement Session” in the weekly meeting agenda<br /> . Ask for some incentive for teachers who volunteer to help this session<br /> . Give those teachers more opportunity<br />
  25. 25. 2. Provide enough scaffolding:<br />- Lack of resources<br />- Time consuming<br />+ Plans to deal with these difficulties<br /> . Write requests to Asian Foundation and Room to Red and Local library<br /> . Combine some lessons together if they are connected<br /> . Use “Exit slip” to check students’ comprehension in order to save time<br />
  26. 26. 3- Develop lesson plan structure:<br />Inspectors will complain about ignorance of Format given by Ministry<br />Fight with the conservative ideas of colleagues and person in charge<br />Promotion will be postponed or cancelled<br />+ Plans to deal with these difficulties<br /> . Be patient, listen to their complains and use their input to improve the transition to these new strategies<br /> . Explain them about the advantages of “Flexibility”<br /> . Promote ‘the idea of taking risk’ “No risk, No change”<br />
