Role Play (Yeah,, I like It)

04 Oct

At the first, when the class start. Miss Lydia wants to remember our name. That’s way she gives us an activity to tell our breakfast menu and before that we should told all of name and their breakfast before us. Luckily I am seat in the front, so I just need to remember a few people. After that we should present the poster that we have done and gallery walk to another group poster. But I am got little bit confuse when hear social culture group present their poster.

In this meeting we focus more to Maslow’s hierarchy of need and the need for self-determination. Rian ask Miss Lydia about Maylow’s pyramid, Should we categorize our need like pyramid start from Physical until self actualization (with the bigger one in the based and the small one in the top)? Because some theory tells about that pyramid can be upend. I agree with Rian, I think people who can’t get the based need can achieve up need too. When I hear Miss Lydia answer, I can accept it. Because Maslow theory of need can represent the general phenomenon, although is it possible to miss the step and next the up step.

I am happy today, because the need for self-determination material should preset in role play. Every group present different role play, so another group guesses the theme of role play. I like this activity so much, because I can see the example of self determination from the role play. I also flashback and realize “hmm,, sometime I do something like that”. Like I want to look smart (the need for competence) and when in Junior High School I want always stay in “kelas unggulan” (the need for relatedness).

Like I already told before, Motivation likes energy. That’s way teacher should giving motivation for their student. Give motivation for student not only by telling but also teacher can integral into teaching and learning process. Like giving praise and critics wisely, Always show a good emotion to student, offer help, engage student to monitor their learning goal, give student opportunities to show they ability and etc.

    Hello, Fitrii,,
    it is good for you (and I also) to flashback. we never realize that sometimes we do something right or wrong. by flashback, we can improve something that we have done.

    good reflection 🙂

    hi,Fitri.. glad to know that you could understand the lesson well by doing the role play.. Yes, as a teacher we have to be wise and sincere in giving praise to the student, and always try to give feedback (“critics”) in the positive and encouraging way
