Interesting and Informing Class

04 Oct

The second meeting in MMSEL class was exciting. I got valuable knowledge at that time. Finally, I knew the concept of humanistic theory of motivation based on Maslow’s theory; Hierarchy of needs which are physiological, safety, belongingness and love, esteem, and self-actualization. I learned that Maslow’s theory should not be ordered based on the level, but it’s rather be more flexible based on priority of people’s needs. For example, people might prioritize their safety to be fulfilled first rather than physiological need, because they live in condition requiring safety. And finally, I knew that Maslow proposed the theory based on development of age. For example, a baby needs physiological need (food, healthy) as the basic need. When the baby grow up become a child, he will need safety.

On the gallery walk (2 stay 2 stray) session, I got much information from other groups. I got information about motivation theory in humanistic, sociocultural, social-cognitive, and behavioral. It was quite interesting learning together with my friends, although it was confusing, however.

Then, we learned about self-determination and self-worth. It was challenging, because we we should read the reading first, then we shared our knowledge from the reading to others. Sometimes, I found different perception about the concept of self-determination and self-worth with my friends, but it wasn’t too significant. Finally, we reached same point of view.

The most interesting part of the session was the role play. Each group should show a role play about self-determination and self-worth in classroom. My group had a chance to show a role play about self-determination; competence. I learned from my group’s role play that students should be given improving and motivating feedback which the feedback should increase students’ self-esteem. Moreover, helping students in their learning is important, but we have to be careful of giving the helps, because frequent helps given to students could decrease their ability and independence in learning. I also learned about the application of self-determination and self-worth in classroom from other groups. The whole role plays were definitely interesting. It was fun we we are asked by Ms. Lidya to guess what other groups showed to us in their role play. My group could guess it correctly.

Thank you for the interesting and informing class. It gave me a lot of things to be reflected.

    I do agree with you faqih, we should be careful to help our students when they faced obstacles in their learning. but sometimes some of students are very shy to show their difficulties, they pretend that they can do their job. so, what can the teacher do to be sensitive on that situation? hopefully you can add some comment about it to your article :-), then it will be more nice 🙂

      dear Desy,

      Yes, we should be sensitive in knowing students’ characteristics. Actually, the essence of offering help to our students carefully is to make sure that they can do tasks and solve problems well. Nevertheless, we as a teacher should not offer help frequently. Shy students should be engaged in classroom. Then, we will know that they still need more explanations or activities for strengthening their understanding by giving question or test. I think that it is the best way.

    Hi, Faqih.. glad to know that you understand the lesson well.. yes, i’m agree with you that “…students should be given improving and motivating feedback which the feedback should increase students’ self-esteem. Moreover, helping students in their learning is important, but we have to be careful of giving the helps, because frequent helps given to students could decrease their ability and independence in learning…”
    Hope in the future you can motivate your students well through your feedback and appropriate helps.
