Reflection week 2 (Maslow, Self-determination, Self-worth)

04 Oct

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.

    Dear Ayu,.
    i agree with your words, “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”. I also think like that, it will have a different understanding when we learn alone and when we share each other. Sharing can add our knowledge and improve our understanding.
    Good reflection, Thank you

    nice reflection ayu,,
    I agree with you that a whole activities on second meeting was very effective, because we can understand well the material through the explanation, article and role play that related to real life situation…

    I like your group role play, because I often see some people or may be myself do the same thing like your group has done. And I know from this class that this thing is part of Self-worth that influence one’s motivation. 🙂

    Good to know that you feel the learning was going well and effective.. I hope the lesson is also useful for you as a teacher candidate.. Actually just like Fitri said, the first activity is the “remembering” ice, I hope you’ll come on time on our next meeting so you wouldn’t miss the very first activity then 😉
