3 Introduction Introduction I’m English Language teacher from Chirchik town, Uzbekistan. I was born on August 10, I’ve been teaching English for 6 years and I really enjoy it. I have a family: mother, father, brother and me, Leonid. At present time I teach English to 9-12 grades at the Academic Lyceum in Chirchik. I am also a member of UzTEA branch (Uzbekistan teachers of English Association) and active participant of annual conferences in Tashkent. I also have participated at several workshops lead by US embassy, British Council. I’m always open to something new and interesting, anything that might be useful at my work or worth teaching to my students. I like challenges and eager to expand my experience. At my lyceum I’m responsible for developing and improving curriculum, conducting workshops for other English teachers, sharing experience and information got from UzTEA conferences. Of course, it requires a lot of knowledge and skills. Participating in TEA 2008 program I have a great chance and possibilities to increase the knowledge of the subject and achieve higher levels at teaching foreign language. I’m interested in listening to music, chess and travelling. The aim of creating portfolio is to reflect my experience and skills gained during the professional program at George Mason University. The program includes two parts: seminars at the University and observation by attending lessons of US colleagues at JEB Stuart High School. 3

4 Professional reflections As other professions the profession of teacher has directive and specific disciplines. And it takes much time to be professional language teacher. Professional development is a continuous process of individual and collective improvement of practice. Its empowering effects should reach individual educators and also learning communities. To practice to foster reflection and awareness of one’s and our community’s teaching practices, bridging the gap between information and knowledge, aiming at deepening and broadening knowledge of content, and thus, laying the grounds for pedagogy of all disciplines related to English teaching. Professional development should be rooted in and reflect the best available research, and should also be intellectually engaging, as well as address the complexity of teaching. It is through knowledge management that the teachers pave the way to personal reflection, fostering individual professional insight, and thus, having a positive impact on teaching community. 4

5 Fieldwork reflections JEB Stuart High School Mentor teacher: Dale WHITESELL My fieldwork is bases in JEB Stuart High School and when I observed the lessons I noticed some differences and similarities. The similarities are that we Use some methods of teaching as they do. Our teachers focus on Learner Centered Method and so do the American Teachers. The students feel free during the lessons. The lessons are interactive and integrated. During the lessons all four skills are taken into account. The library system has a great access to resources at JEB Stuart High School. The students have various options for reading. The books are available all the time and the students can choose any book easily as they are divided into sections. There are strict rules set at he school. Concerning differences the one thing I observed is the use of technology. Certainly we have the technology provided to our lyceum but we don’t use it as often as they do. They use computers for language learning. As for us, we don’t use it in language classes. The students are taught the computer skills and they can use internet for finding the information and assignments but they don’t perform tasks in class hours in computer. The other thing, I noticed is that the American English teachers use listening activities. To my opinion they even don’t need that as they have the English speaking environment and they are native speakers but we use audio and video recordings for students to listen to the native speakers’ conversations in different situations. Our classes have to cover more things. The pronunciation and phonetics also have to be integrated along with the skills practice. From my observation I found that it is good to use computer as a language teaching recourse. The students can submit their work and get feedback individually. As for some tasks they can even look at the percentage of their performance and assess themselves. It encourages them to self -development. 5
