In my first essay, I discuss my views of learning as a largely constructivist process and, in a limited fashion, how some educational theorists have influenced my views as a world language teacher. In addition, I underline a few teaching methodologies that support learning, understanding, and conceptual change (e.g. the transfer of knowledge outside of the classroom). I had some issues getting Google docs to allow me to format a few things the way I wanted to, but I hope that doesn’t detract from the essay itself. Happy reading!
