Start from 10th October 2011 until two week forward I am going to have school experience in SMA Labschool Kebayoran. Hmm,, quite make me tense, because I am should teach social class about limit function. Oh my God, I am really confused about how to deliver the concept of limit function easily. As we know that limit function will be a new knowledge for secondary student. After that I am also should design a CAR (Classroom Action Research) in my class. Unfortunately I just have two meeting with my student, because in the next week they are going to have a holiday. It means that I just have a time to doing my CAR when I meet my student and they are no time to observe the class situation first. Yeah, I just try to get information from my master teacher about the class condition. My master teacher said that social class is a “anak buangan”, because most of them are a student who lack ability in calculating and can’t enter science class. That’s way teaching social class need more skill and should be patient.
My first indicators about social student are: need more motivation and should make the student busy with activity to handle the class situation. Actually I want to use STAD grouping method to increase student achievement in mathematics. I am going to divide a group that have the same ability, because they are consist of fast learner and slow learner. In the first time I just want to use individual method and I will compare it with grouping method in the next meeting.
Now, I will told you about my first experience teaching in social class of SMA Labschool. I conduct an activity that consist of watching video, game, doing exercise and quiz in the last most of them need individual action. But my planning are can’t run well because I can’t connect my laptop to the LCD, I spend much time when explaining the concept, and the time are separate with the rest time. That’s way so many times that castaway and I can’t run my planning well. I should eliminate the game section, even its make my activity boring for the studentL.
Motivation that I require from the student mostly intrinsic motivation and also extrinsic, because in this meeting the student work individually and need to get good result in their quiz time by working individually. Student need to use their intrinsic motivation to understand the concept and also become extrinsic motivation when I said the quiz result will be giving to your teacher.
Actually I just have two meeting to tell. So, I just told you my first meeting for this week. I will tell the next meeting in the next reflectionJ. Now I just have a conclusion that make a class regulation are very useful for us who still practice in teaching. The student will be easy to control only with remembering them into the class regulation that already agreed in the first.
