Last week was my first week on school experience terms. My school is Labschool Kebayoran. My master teacher named Mrs. Fitri Hidayani. She teaches mathematics for grade X and XI-social. I get grade X-B for my practice class.
On the first day, I and Evik observed grade X-A and B class together. I was so nervous when I meet the students of the school. They looked active and smart. I and Evik were asked to introduce our selves to the students. Fortunately, they welcome for our coming. After introducing our selves, I and Evik Observed Mrs. Fitri. Our observation focused on how teacher’s method in teaching mathematics especially in algebra or quadratic equation.
On the second day, it was my time for me to teach my class (X-B), but I collaborated with Evik. We taught quadratic equation especially about discriminant. In our teaching method, we applied guide discovery with worksheet. As I saw, they looked motivated in learning this. They were active and enjoyed in doing their activity. The activities were Discussion, discovery learning, presentation skill, and quiz. For this learning process, they thought that they understand about the concept of the material.
From this experience, I got a lesson learn. I have to design a motivated learning process. By doing this, I am sure our students will enjoy the class even the subject is hard. Besides that, we will help students to understand about the subject well. 🙂
