Agenda for MMSEL course today is watching movie,, yeah, I like it so much J. I like it because watching movie is my favorite way to make me relax. I am always watching movie when I am feel bored. That’s way I am really happy, because I can learn from watching movie. The movie that we watch is “I am not stupid”. Hmm,, from the title I can imagine that is a wonderful movie.
I think too much waste time at the beginning of the movie, too much advertisement. But, wow.. I think the movie is interesting. The student said that there school is a jail. How scary that school, until the student feel not comfort in the school. I think when student feeling about the school are bad, it will be influence student motivation. Student will not happy when coming to the school and not interest to find a new knowledge in the school. When I continued watching the movie, I find the answer. The actors are stay in the class with the image “slow learner student”. Teacher in that class are not motivated the student and just underestimate into student ability. The condition impact to student parent, parent feel shame if their child stay in slow learner class. Parent will push their child without care to their child intelligence. Many parents think that mathematics and English language is an important think, that’s way the child should able and know about that. Finally come a good teacher into that class and giving the student motivation. That’s teacher also appreciate to student multiple intelligence. Teachers not push the student but give them and a energy by giving motivation.
Finally the student try to do the best in that class based on their own goal, like trying to be friend with the subject, to make their parent fell happy, motivated because the teacher, just follow the parent instruction and etc. But we should consider also into student multiple intelligence and interest. Don’t push the students to mastering subject, when they are unable to learn it. Just focus into student ability and give them spirit.
