What is a Philosophy of Teaching Statement?

* Philosophy of teaching statements are concise statements of what you believe about the teaching and learning of languages, and possibly also about education in general. Most sources recommend that you keep your teaching philosophy statement between one and two pages in length, covering what you believe, why, and brief examples of how you implement it in the classroom.
*A philosophy of teaching statement is a narrative that includes your conception of teaching and learning,a description of how you teach and justification for why you teach that way.

Tips on writing philosophy statement..

1-Consider your audience and what manner of presentation will make your ideas easier for them to read.
2-Use bold, italics, or underlining to draw attention on critical issues
3-Consider using a theme or another organizational structure (visual diagram, photograph etc) to organize ideas.
4-Use short, vivid, concrete examples
5-Practice the principle of parsimony
6-Always have someone else read through your educational philosophy statement to check for clarity of expression and correct spelling and grammar before sharing with others.
