In this week we have three main activities in our MMSEL class, drawing, running galleries and plays a role. All three activities that help me understand what the factors or aspects that are needed in our classrooms so that our students are motivated to learn and be motivated in the learning process.
First, we draw on classroom conditions that bring a positive climate and motivate students to learn. I described a tree, which I interpret as a symbol of coolness.Convenient class is a class that is able to provide comfort and harmony in the classroom. Classroom atmosphere is clean and comfortable. The inhabitants of the class is able to provide comfort and care about each other. In addition to supporting the learning process, I also put some learning resources and computer connected to the internet in one corner of the classroom, to prepare in case students need more resources.
When finished drawing, Ms. Lidya asked us to put our pictures to the wall and do a gallery walk alternately. The class is divided into two groups, first group consists of half of the students’ will stay in the picture they explain what the meaning is behind the picture. The remaining students will present their images.
When running the gallery is completed, Ms. Lidya form a group to make plays on a given topic. My group consisted of Ruth, Shinta, Huda, Joey and I play, the role of the Public Order and Safety presented in kelas.Kemudian, after discussion a few minutes we decided to split the roles of each person. Jonatan and Huda a student who bullied Shinta and I, and Ratih became a teacher. We played pretty well, so our friends can get the message that we want to convey through role play.
The fourth group presents play based on understanding the role of task topics. They play very well played and the role they play I could get that on the understanding task, they emphasized on students’ need for autonomy by giving students the opportunity to choose tasks that students want to do. In addition, the fourth group also stressed the importance of the task for students and how to increase students’ awareness about what students should do in order to complete the task.
Gallery walk and play the role really helped me to understand the material easily. I hope I can make something more interesting in my future classroom, so students are motivated and I will enjoy the learning process, and more importantly is to make them addicted to learning.
