A teaching philosophy is a summary statement in which one reflects on how they teach and why. For this third component of your SLP, you will begin to develop your teaching philosophy by reflecting on and responding to the following:
How do you teach?
Importantly, your discussion of “Why” you teach this way is to draw from your insights toward learning theories, as well as your insights on learning, education, and knowledge – that you gained in the previous two modules.
Remember, there is not necessarily a right or wrong answer to your essay. The primary expectations are as follows:
Your essay is to demonstrate careful and deliberate thought toward this topic / question.
Your essay is to be a personal, in-depth, analysis of this topic. NOT merely an objective “cut-and-dry” response.
Your essay is to be written in a clear, organized, and professional manner.
As always, any references used should be properly cited and listed.
