Don’t Stop Believing !

10 Oct

The previous meeting of MMSELclass was interesting. I learned about belief in expextation, belief in intellegence, belief in capable, and belief in value. The first activity was drawing picture about our hopes in the next 5 to 10 years. That was the activity I like the most, because I love drawing. I drew a picture of myself standing in front of audiences giving general lecture. I want to be a professor and a principle. They are my dreams because I imagine that being a professor is very noble and I could share my knowledge to everyone. And being a principle could give me a chance to be a leader. It’s a challenge for me.

After that, each student was asked to present and show their drawing to everyone. It was interesting knowing my friends’ dreams, because I could hear their amazing dreams in the future. I am so proud of my friends. In fact, I found the amazing dreams from my friends that really inspire me.

The next activity was interesting too, because it showed me about the power of jigsaw; sharing knowledge and understanding. I heard any perception from my friends, and from those perceptions, we constructed same meanings and reached concensus. I also learned a lot from my friends about their sight toward belief in expectation, intellegence, capable, and value.

In the jigsaw, I was focusing on the belief in capable. I learned that capability is more specific than self-concept. Capability is the ability to do particular task without any difficulties. It was interesting, because it can be reflected on me. I was good in math when I was in junior high school, but I was poor in logical thinking. Nevertheless, I never found any difficulty in trigonometry and geometry. I realize that I’m capable on those things.

Moreover, belief in capability can be boosted by past performance, modelling, persuasion, and physiology. I learned that belief in capability should be improved, because people who have strong belief in capability will always take challenges, never give up, and persistent. I thought so, that it is important for me to strengthen my belief on capability in order to reach my dream becoming a professional teacher.

      Dear Desy…
      Actually, all of my friends’ dreams inspire me. Yes, u r rite. Teacher should also have belief in capability, because teacher without belief in capability will never let his/her students to take risks and take challenges. Whereas, risks and challenges are important for training students to reach higher order thinking.
