Reflection on 10th Week :)

29 Nov

Honestly, I don’t think that I had enough motivation for starting the 10th week on MMCEL class. Started the day with ‘ngebut’ on the way to campus and the playlist that maybe wake me up, it was not really help me to do it. However, the day should be happening.

I thought Ms Lydia could read our minds that still want to lie on the bed, and then she started with Brain Gym to make us relax and ready to learn. For me, it was helpful and could make me relax. The first activity was discussion, but we expected to write down our experience and our thought on a piece of paper before the discussion session. Group A had sub topic about teacher characteristics, group B was Learner point of view, and group C was about class structured. I included in group B, I wrote the answer of guiding question about learner point of view about skills that we had and what can be the influence of developing it. The discussion was not for member of same group, but one circle of discussion should be include different group, which are A, B and C. My circle was Ismi, Andi, Titiah and I. From the discussion, I could get some points. They are situation that can make students motivate to learn if the condition and facilitation could support the teaching and learning at that time, teacher who can vary assessment to the students and have value when teaching like respect to students and learner that have spirit to learn more without scare to be failed.

Ms Lydia summed up all issues that discussed in each circle and wrote it on the board. She gave the main concept and asked us to do reading and discussion on group of three. My group had Self- Regulation topic, we should make summary of it through discussion. Our group found, Zimmerman stated that there are three types of self-regulation; they are self-regulation of motivation, self-regulation of behavior, and self-regulation of cognitive. After that, we did two stray-one stay. From the explanation Desy’s group I got that class structured is about mastery and performance focused. From another explanation that I followed, I got that teacher should be care and have self-efficacy. It could make students more interested and motivated on learning. As teacher candidate, we should be aware to these three main points. It is not as simple as read the article of it, we should practice and apply it into our classroom and it’s sooooo hard. hahaha

    I agree with your last statement, it is so hard to apply. Every student in real classroom has their own need of those three points and it could be very different with other students. It is our task to make them feel safe and relax while they learning in the class, no matter the class focused is, so they could learn well.
    Unfortunately, I have not visit teacher characteristics poster. I think teacher characteristics is foundation of classroom structure, because how class will run is depends on the teacher. I wish I had time to see teacher characteristics posters, yeah maybe other time.

      Triana: what i learned about self regulation is the ability ti control students’ own behaviour and learning. it show in their emotional reaction, regulate tge rules and restriction when they learn. from Zimmerman, there are three types of Self regulation, they are self regulation of behaviour, cognitive and motivation.. mabye it can help you to understand about self regulation 😉

    Actually I didn’t have an opportunity to hear self-regulated presentation. some my friend told me that self regulated is more about how we manage our self. like time management and management emotion. it is true?

      yes fitri, we can say like that, or part of self management.. to increase the ability of students’ own behaviour and learning, teacher can use classroom management that show the rules of their behaviour while we fulfil their needs. Thank you Fitri, i hope it helps you to understand more about it 🙂
