Second week reflection

04 Oct

In the second week, we do gallery walk of several theories of motivation. I got the information about the humanistic theory of motivation, social-cultural, social-cognitive, and behavioral. It was very interesting study together with friends. Today we also study the humanistic theory of motivation based on Maslow’s theory. The concept of human motivation by Abraham Maslow refers to the five basic needs are arranged hierarchically. Hierarchy of physiological needs, safety, belongingness and love, esteem, and self-actualization. From this theory I can understand that every human has a different priority needs. According to the theory of needs Maslow’s hierarchy of needs which are at bottom no more to be fulfilled in part before someone would try to have a need for a higher level. For example someone who is hungry or a person who is physically in danger did not bother to maintain a positive self-concept (self image as well) than to get food or security; yet so, people who are no longer hungry or is no longer gripped by fear , the need for self-esteem is important.

The most interesting part of this meeting is now playing a role. Mrs. Lidya provide us with two articles on “Needs Self-Determination”. Each group should play the role of self-determination and self-esteem in the classroom. Lidya’s mother asked us to guess what the other group shows us in playing their role. Group I display on the need for self worth. It’s about an emotional reaction or self-evaluation. All of us can learn from each other than role playing. Playing this role can help students, especially me in learning and understanding of the material being studied. I am very pleased with the method of role play, because I can better understand what I am studying.

Hopefully at the next meeting I can find new things are more fun.
