My Reflection of My first MMSEL course

27 Sep

Last week, I had Motivation and Management of Students for Effective Learning Class. This was the first time I met my lecture of this course. She is Ms. Lydia. Sorry I came late for the first meeting… :). When I followed this class, I felt enjoy and fun because my lecture is beautiful, cheer, and friendly.

The first activity was about class (like and dislike). When I knew this activity, I thought about my teachers who I dislike of their characteristics in teaching. My teachers did not have well-preparation and did not objective when assessed the students. I also dislike if the environment of class is too cold and hot, because it make me not comfortable and enjoyable in teaching-learning process.

Otherwise, I like the class which my friends could understand each other in class. I meant they did not make me underestimate and down when I made a mistake. I am enthusiastic with the class which is taught by teacher who is fun, humorist, not bored, and not monotonous. After that, we connected about the class to intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. Then, one by one of students gave opinion which one is intrinsic or extrinsic motivation of the list that was mentioned in whiteboard. I felt the class that I like and dislike included to extrinsic motivation because the motivation came from outside.

The second activity was about understanding our motives for becoming a teacher. The first was my friends. His name was Huda. He said that the reason to be a teacher because teacher was still needed, always youthful and everlasting heroes. My motive to be a teacher was because I love teaching. I also had experiences about teaching when I was child. I taught my neighbor at my home. Then, my love of teaching continued when I was junior high school. I taught elementary school near of my home, but I taught extracurricular subject for one year. Actually, there were so many experiences about teaching, but it was one of my experiences that I remembered.  I feel that my motive for becoming a teacher is my dream that came from intrinsic motivation.

The last activity was about theory of motivation. Ms. Lydia divided students into several groups to discuss about theory of motivation. My group consists of Huda, Evik, Novani and I discussed about sociocultural theories but we did not get the article about it. So, we browsed it from the internet. Unfortunately, I am still confused about sociocultural perspective of motivation.

    Great reflection, Titiah 🙂
    You are our “RIDER” Titiah. I like your style when you come to class and still using jacket and your rider mask. hihihi :b

    Agree with Evik, let we help each other and learn together. if I didn’t forget, we will present and discuss it for the next meeting, right?
    If I’m not mistaken, sociocultural contexts in motivation and education more broadly reflects the influence from Lev Vygotsky and The practical implication of these theories is that explanations for differences in motivation should begin with the classroom, home, and sociocultural context, rather than the individual.

    Hopefully, we can learn together and more from our reflection 🙂

    I really like your reflection, titiah.. 🙂

    I agree with you that your motive to be a teacher comes from your intrinsic motivation. Because, when a dream comes from ourselves, we will struggle to achieve it. 🙂
