    ELL Capstone Portfolio

    Get PDF
    Teaching and Learning Department capstone projectThe ELL Capstone portfolio is aimed at demonstrating my understanding of teaching English Language Learners (ELLs) and my mastery of relevant theoretical frameworks and pedagogy. It consists of three parts: My Philosophy of Teaching; TESOL Domains and Standards; Application to Practice. In the first part, I state my teaching philosophy by identifying what I value when teaching English as a foreign language, which is grounded on conceptual theories. In the second part, I demonstrate my interpretations of eight TESOL domains and standards, Planning, Instructing, Assessing, Identity and Context, Language Proficiency, Learning, Content and Commitment and Professionalism. Except Language Proficiency, along with each domain, one to two artifacts completed by me during my study in Peabody College are presented to assist in illustrating my understanding, in terms of the learner, the learning environment, the curriculum and the assessment, of the domain addressed. In the third part, I reflect upon what I have learned in the past two years and describe my ideal teaching model from the perspectives of lesson preparation, lesson delivery, assessment and reflection. More importantly, I anticipate possible challenges regarding my future teaching context and propose potential solutions. The portfolio is concluded by presenting my expectations for myself.Department of Teaching and LearningPeabody College of Education and Human Developmen

    Get PDF
    Comparative static properties of the solution to an optimal nonlinear income tax problem are provided for a model in which the government both designs an income tax schedule for redistributive purposes and provides a public good optimally. There are two types of individuals, distinguished by their skill levels, who have the same quasilinear preferences for labour supply and the consumption of a private and a public good. The parameters for which comparative statics are obtained are the weights in a weighted utilitarian social welfare function, the prices of the private and public goods, a taste parameter that measures the onerousness of working, and the individual skill levels
