Week Fourth: Teaching Experience

18 Oct

Start from 10th October, my friends and I (section B & D, 2009 cohort) are doing teaching experience. This teaching experience was designed for two weeks. Fortunately there is no class during teaching experience session, it purposed for make us focused on our teaching experience and other embedded tasks on teaching experience. This semester I placed in a famous national high school in Kebayoran Baru area. In that school I got XI Science as class that I will conduct teaching experience, classroom action research (CAR), and other embedded class. As usual, we also got master teacher as our advisor in teaching experience and I got Mr. N as my master teacher. He is very good teacher, his math acquisition is good, very good. He could deliver the lesson material without any losing grip even the class is noisy.

Mr. N gave me many lessons to be learnt, from communication, learning flow, Mathematics skill, explanation skill, class management, and creating enjoy learning environment. That is all I got from twice observation in his class. One thing that I have not understood yet is class management. He teaches in one of XI science class that contains of students who could be categorized as noisy, ignorance students. He likes has charisma that even his presence in front of the class is enough to make students calm down. That is contrast with me, even I increase my voice volume students still not pay attention.


That is only a part of unexpected condition in my class. What about the other parts? It still contrasts. I have been taught twice in that class, most of my energy ruined for gaining their attention to lesson. At first I thought there was something wrong with my teaching, however when I heard same story from my friends who taught in the same class with me, I feel something wrong not just in my side. After all, I could not blame students who acted like that in the class, as teacher I have responsibility to make learning take place no matter the cost. Starting from this statement, I tried to communicate with them more personally. This action very helpful from me, by using personal approach to them I could lead them to do task that I gave to them.

One important thing that I got from what happened in my class; to be a teacher means to be ready for whatever condition of the class and ready for whatever condition of the students.

    Nice experience Hud…And I like your statement “being a teacher means being ready for whatever condition of the class and for whatever condition of the students.” That’s is very important because the real class condition outside of our campus is very very truly different from our class atmosphere in campus. Remember about microteaching in our courses. We could implement so many activities in vary and the time was enough for those activities, but in real class, two activities can spend more time than what we expect in the lesson plan, even, one activity sometimes takes much time…
    And about your master teacher, hmm…u said that he has a charisma that very affective in gaining students’ attention, and it was contrast from you…maybe that means you are less of charisma :p. You have to learn from your master teacher how to increase your charisma…kekekekekekek
