In the second meeting of MMSEL class was wonderful and very exciting. Before we started the class, we did a game. The game is simple, we just remembering our friend’s breakfast. But, it’s really fun and helps our lecturer to remember our name. Hoho, I think it’s one way to remember the name of our students later and i think it is important for us as a teacher candidate to know the name of our student not calling them by the number, so, it make us close to them.
The second part of this meeting, we did gallery walk. Every group presented their discussion about learning theories. Hmm, it remains me about the theories that I’ve learned in educational psychology. And in this part, my group explained about social cognitive and related to the motivation. After that, Ms. Lydia explained about Maslow’s theory. Ya, we did a discussion about the hierarchy needs of Maslow’s theory, some of us give opinion about it, and at that time I felt confuse because the opinion it’s not same with my previous knowledge. But, from Ms. Lydia I knew that concept of Maslow’s theory based on development of age.
The next activity is we did silent reading about self determination and self worth. In self determination, it divided into 3 (competence, autonomy, relatedness). To make us more understand, Ms Lydia asked us to do role play about the topic. Each group has different kind of topic. My group presented about competence, it’s about how we give feedback to students, so it can increase their motivation. By this activity, I got more understand about self determination and self worth because I got the visualization and learn each other. Overall this meeting is very helpful for me to prepare become a good teacher later.
Hmmm, I really enjoy in this class J
