Self Introduction (Written in October, 2013) (Details)

My name is Naoki Tanaka. Nice to meet you.

My goal of ETM2 is to be able to speak and listening to English. I'm not good at them. Especialy,listenig what is speaked by English isbad. I think it is because I don't positive to speak by English that I am not good at it. However, there are a lot of chances that I am exposed to English. So, i want to raise their ability to use English in class.

Their skills are essential ot be a teacher. If I am a junior hight scool student, I want teahers that have more knowledge to teach.It should not to be a teacher that people don't have it.So i musy learm English to be a good teacher. This is the best thing in university life.

My favorite thing in university is to live wiht my friends. They are nice guys. I love them.


That's it.

Now, my immediate goal and dream is to survive this year! ETM 3 students, please don't make me work too hard.

Guide to Naoki's Portfolio (Details)

The overall goal of this portfolio is to show you what I have learned/ experienced at the Faculty of Education which impacts who I am as a person and a teacher. My portfolio is divided into the following sections.

Teaching Experience: Here I present about my experience teaching outside the university using "Critical Incidents" to discuss the issues I have encountered and what I learned from them. I also talk about my own personal teaching methodology and my strengths and weaknesses as a teacher.

Language and CultureHere I talk about my foreign language learning such as my strengths and weaknesses in English, qualifications I have, or my experiences using English. I also talk about cross-cultural experiences I have had inside and outside Japan.

Teaching Activities: On this page I show and describe the teaching activities I have made inside and outside the university. I also discuss the teaching skills I have acquired. The point of this page is to show you what I have learned about teaching. This page can include pictures, video, lesson plans, worksheets, descriptions of lessons, and student work.

Disciplinary Knowledge: On this page, I will write what I know about relevant academic disciplines to teaching English as a foreign language such as socio-cultural theory, language acquisition, phonetics, etc.
