Third Reflection

10 Oct


In the third meeting, I still late for 5 minutes from the time. Fortunately, Mrs Lidya should prepared something so the class wasn’t begin yet. In 5 the third meeting, my friends and I have learned about Belief on Motivation to Learn. First activity is drawing session. Each of us should drawing our future about five or ten years from now. I divide my paper into two part, five years from now, I really want that I could take my master degree not longer than two years, after that I would like to have someone that know me more deeper inside and outside (amin). Ten years from now, I really want make my parent happy by being a teacher in one of school on Denpasar. Hope that my dream come true.

Second activity, we have jigsaw reading. The reading is talking about belief. There are five kinds of belief that might be influence our motivation to learn, those are:

  1. Belief about future outcomes. Students know what should they do to get something in the future, for example I would get A score for the final test if I prepared as well as I can.
  2. Belief about intelligence. Students belief that their ability fixed only on that level because their parent ability, for example I couldn’t do this math assignment because my mom bad in math.
  3. Belief about capability. Students know their ability, what should they do with it to get maximum output in the right time, for example I should solve a lot of exercise when prepared math quiz for next week.
  4. Belief about value. Students know the benefit and disadvantages when they didn’t learn about something, for example I take math education in college level because I choose math teacher as my profession.
  5. Belief about cause of performance.  Students know cause of their performance why they are success or not. Weiner (1992, 2001) said that there are four attributes that make students success or not, those are ability, effort, luck and task difficulty.
My group divide the reading into 4 parts. I got Belief about value and cause of performance, but we only share belief about future outcomes until value. After that someone should share what they have learned from their friend not from what they already master it. By the time, I really enjoy this class. Hope that Mrs Lidya always have different methods for teach us. Thank you for reading 🙂

    amin, so do you joey :p
    If I’m not mistake, belief about cause of performance is talking about cause of someone getting succes or not in the study. The first cause is ability: students belief that the main cause that them success because they abilities is goo; the second cause is luck: students belief that the main cause that them success is lucky factor of their self on the test; the third cause is effort: students belief that the main cause they are success is because they already prepare it as well as they can; and the last cause is level difficulty of the task it self: sometimes students think that they are success on the test just because the task is not measure them, might be test too easy for them. Hope that my explanation clear enough. Thank you 🙂
