In this second meeting, I think that the learning is very effective. From the first activity which is gallery walk, we can learn about other group’s discussion and opinion about learning theories in a short time. We compare and assimilate or accommodate the new information from others to have a new knowledge. After we did gallery work, we discuss and confirm our perception together with Ms. Lydia.
In second activity, we discuss the level hierarchy of needs by Maslow. We learn it by identifying which level a person from the problem Ms. Lydia gave to us. By doing this I can learn better and know deeper the differences of each level and how it is applied in our daily life.
We did silent reading then discuss it with our pair in third activity. The article is about self-determination and self-worth. When we read alone I can’t understand some aspect from the article, but after I discuss with my partner I can understand better and easier. We also can share our perspective of the reading.
Based on my opinion, self-determination is how a person needs to act and control her/his environment. By have chance(s) to make decision and choice will grow intrinsic motivation of person. Self-determination has three part, competence, autonomic and relatedness.
Self-worth according to Schunk is an emotional reaction to or an evaluation of the self. Self-worth is how students react to give impression to other to increase their self-esteem and achieve self-acceptance.
The last activity is role play. We make a group and each group will have a material to do the role play while other groups will guess what theme they were presented. We present it in very creative and understandable way.
That’s my opinion about our learning on second meeting. Please correct me if my opinion is wrong. Thank you.
