The previous meeting on MMSEL course was exciting and interesting. We just watched the movie, the title of the movie is “I Not Stupid”, and it’s produced in Singapore. I Not Stupid was inspiring; it was touching me as teacher candidate. The movie tells about three students which are in EM3 class. EM3 class is where students who have low ability in learning. They refer to a class that cannot be saved. The environment not support them, they usually bully them as the stupid students.
Now, I will tell you about the three of students on that movie. First Terry, he is from rich family, beside that he is the kind of children that obedient with his mom. He always followed his mom. He wants get freedom and does anything based on his belief. Also he want his mother belief on him, terry is not a kid anymore. Based on Maslow theory, terry needs love and freedom from his mom, not just the material.
Second, is about student who is talented in drawing. He is Liu. Unfortunately, his talent cannot be accommodates in his family because of his mother wants him become good in math and English. His mother think if Liu good in English and math, he become successful person. She do anything like did violence to reach her ambition. When his mother sick, Liu study hard to make his mom happy. he get extrinsic motivation from his mom, he study hard and try to learn English and Math. Different with Liu, boon hock have difficulties in learning because of he must help his family. But, he can prove that he can get good score in math. He gets extrinsic motivation from his teacher that can motivate him to learn.
I think that’s all for my reflection,
