Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This report is a retrospective analysis of teaching pathways developed throughout A WHOLE CAREER. The various educational and teaching experiences are narrated in first person, in order to unveil a personal but new method fully adapted to the modern day reality which also considers a valid preparation for an uncertain future. . This constructively critical approach also presents a DESCRIPTION of behaviour, ideas, opinions, feelings, situations and concepts developed throughout TEACHING and professional training not only in the classroom but also in school as an inclusive environment. Considering the need for change, the study QUESTIONS the knowledge or even the lack of it as crucial elements that contribute to the AUTHOR’S PROFESSIONAL IDENTITIY. As the formal and informal learning allow the change, the professional identity incorporates both. For this reason, I ATTEMPT TO CLARIFY HOW I UNDERSTOOD the teacher’s mission, which is not only vocational but also ROOTED in legitimate theories. Nowadays, communication is a challenge which includes vision and ambition in all learning areas. The learning of foreign languages, which is the ANALYSIS HERE PRESENTED, also requires time and specific training, therefore, it is essential to develop and apply PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS which positively stimulate the 21st century teaching. Reflecting on this particular work, made it clear that the adequate training and time permit the redefiniton of such standards. As a result, concepts such as supervision, investigation and reflection are absolutely fundamental as TOOLS to expand the professional knowledge in THIS AREA.
