Teach English Now! Capstone Project 1 (Coursera)

In the final Capstone Project, you will apply the skills you learned by observing teachers at work (a total of six hours of observation). You will build on the concepts learned from the previous courses to analyze the lessons. You will also submit your teaching philosophy, a five-day lesson plan, and a teaching tip. You will deliver a portion of your lesson, submitting a 6-10 minute video for peer review. If you have completed Teach English Now! Part 1 and Teach English Now! Part 2, you will submit your work for expert review to receive your ASU 150-hour TESOL Certificate from ASU, in addition to your Coursera certificates.



Introduction to Capstone and Philosophy of Teaching

Welcome to Module 1 of the Capstone Project for Teach English Now!: Part I. We know that you have worked hard to get to this point in the specialization and are anxious to apply all you have learned. In the first module of this course, you will be designing and writing your own personal Teaching Philosophy. You will be reflecting on everything you’ve learned thus far to work through a variety of tasks and peer reviews to perfect your Teaching Philosophy. Make sure to refer back to the previous courses as needed. Good Luck!
