Personal goals for this semester

For each of the three below, discuss what your goals are and how you plan to achieve them.

related to becoming a better communicator of English

- Even though I am teaching English now, I know I need to keep on improving my skills for communication in English. To become a better communicator of English I will look for different environments where I can practice my English, for example chatrooms, in the classroom, with my friends (the ones who already speak and helping the ones who don't), etc. I think that we can learn something new everyday, even in our native language that is why I'm open to new ideas and new knowledge.

related to pedagogy

- There is not a magical formula to teach and become "the perfect teacher"; nonetheless, it is not enough to be an expert on the subject we are teaching, but it is necessary to learn and use different techniques to transmit that knowledge. That is why my objective is to learn different strategies to teach English which can be adapted according to my students' needs and interests, and also help me to transmit what I know to my students. It is important to adopt different strategies according to our teaching style, but also it is crucial to be update and learn new methods and techniques. To achieve this purpose, it could be useful to share among teachers and research in different sources about the teaching techniques that we use, how they can be applied, to whom, when, etc., so that, we expand our knowledge in pedagogy little by little. 

related to how languages are learned

- My purpose is to explore different techniques and theories that explain how languages are learned and take it into consideration when planning my classes and teaching the lessons. It is important to be aware of the learning styles and differentces among our students, so that they can take advantage of the class in a fair way. Also, to vary the kind of exercises in the class will provide Ss different opportunities to interact and use the language in several situations.
