Meeting after Midterm

29 Nov

After midterm, this meeting is the first meeting. We writing about the teacher and classroom who motivate the student and also how student manage their emotion to be motivate. We divide into three group based on the topic. After that Miss Lydia engaged us to discuss about what we write. We can see that we can decide motivated classroom and teacher based on our experience. The classroom condition and the teacher is the factor that influences student motivation. But after I read some book, I think the classroom condition is formed by the teacher. So, I conclude that teacher is a key to motivate student. But student itself has a big influence into them self. How student manage their emotion, and manage their time also important, it’s a kind of self-regulation.

Based on goal orientation theory, they are separate into two. They are mastery goal and performance goal. Mastery goal is more focused on earning a high grade, and that’s why I work hard to learn. My performance is better than it was at the beginning of the semester. Performance goal is I want to avoid mistakes so I can get a good grade. That’s the reward for studying hard; my performance is better than other students. It’s good for teacher to make student have a good mastery goal, performance goal.

sometime the class condition also based on the total student in that class and the facilities. If the total of student in the class to much, it’s can be noisy and conducive. About facilities, it is also impact the student motivation. if it is comfort it will influence student motivation.

    I agree with with you fitri, that teacher is a key to motivate students because students motivation and class structure depends on teacher characteristic itself. Students’ interest also affected by the teacher that can increase students performace, self expectation and also their self confidence.
    Nice reflection fitri 🙂

      evik, in my opinion the motivate teacher is a teacher who able to make a personal relation with the student. Personal relation more focus on the the good side. Like care into the student, give extra time when the student need more. that’s my opinion
