School Experience Part-1

18 Oct



Which one that represent your self? For me, I could be both of them. I could be an energetic online teacher or teacher centered because the condition make me to do that. Teacher is decision maker in their class, she/he decide something in every single minute. Don’t be afraid to make wrong decision because I never know that decision is wrong or true if I never try to apply. Welcome to school experience year 3. The name already change, it isn’t school assistant anymore because my friends and I already got one class for every teaching practice. Well, in Senior High School in Kebayoran I called it as L school, I got class with very nice students. Why I called them as nice students? Because the class really in good performance and also achievement as general. I know it from my first observation. The class more quiet than other class and the students in the class really paying attention with the explanation from the teacher. The deplorable thing that I found is the teacher still use teacher centered as his methodology and individual task as his approach. My mind already asking, how about conducting lesson by student centered? When, I see the topic I think I am gonna be crazy if teach them by student centered, because they are not ready yet for it and the material needs more explanation from the teacher. So it will be better if I used teacher centered as my method and group discussion as my approach.

 I should make a preparation in this class as good as I can because I know I’ll teach “special” student. FYI, I already teaching in the first week of teaching experience because the school is not effective in the second week. On my teaching time, I’m little bit nervous of course. But I could handle it. In the first meeting I make grand rules with my students and also write down the agenda on that day. They are respect to me as their new teacher in their class. So, it’s easy for me to work with my plan and agenda. Some students looks like didn’t enjoy the class when I ask them to do the exercise, but they are still following the activities with high enthusiasm. Thank you for reading. 😀

    I’m so sorry tih, if you miss understood with my post. My mind think that It will be better if I used student centered as my method, but I also combine group work as the approach, because in the first meeting it’s possible to make them understood with the lesson by using group discussion. The topic is about trigonometry equality, the basic concept of the lesson already taught in the previous lesson. So I only recall the previous lesson then arrange them in group for discussing exercise but not too easy.

    Good reflection eki,,
    I think that whatever the method and approach that we used, at least, we can deliver the material and students can understand with the content of the topic..
    I agree with eki’s statement “Don’t be afraid to make wrong decision”,
    there is no wrong if we try..ok
