Reflection week 12

13 Dec

As usual MMSEL course is very exciting for me. At the first time, Ms Lydia asked us to make a big of circle. Then, we had to express our feeling, it was a funny activity, because i saw how my friends expressed their feeling in many ways. 🙂

Last week, Ms Lydia explains about instructional variables which are promoting students motivation in the class. There are four parts of instructional variables, The variables are introductory focus, personalization, involvement and feedback. Introductory focus is about lesson beginning, how the teacher attract students attention and image of the lesson. Teacher should make an interesting part but meaningful on the beginning of the lesson, it can influence of students motivation to learn also get response and good initial assessment of students. Personalization is about how the teacher make connection between students lives and material given. It can help student to understand more about the material, and it can motivate students to learn. The teacher can use real life example to link the material and students lives, because its familiar of students lives. involvement is about how the teacher involve students in learning process. the teacher can involve students in groups, games or activities in the class. And for feedback is about how the teacher giving feedback that can increase intrinsic and self efficacy of students.

After Ms Lydia explains about that, she showed us video. the video is about how the teacher giving instruction and handle the classroom. the video was inspiring for me, because i saw even teacher and students are enjoy in the class. the teacher use variety activities to make students understand the material. Then, we did discussion in pair about the video.

After discussion, we did role play. Ms.Lydia asked us to join with our group. my group are Ipin, Ismi, ayu and I. The theme of our role play is doubt become a teacher. we tried to motivated the audience for not doubt become a teacher. and the motivator of my group is Ipin, he did great job for that. 🙂

Thats all for my reflection, see you 🙂

    About the video, in certain point I disagree with you. I feel the students did that activities because those activities were routine activities that they must done every day. In my opinion, those activities were very interesting at the first but by time goes, it become regular activities and maybe (once again in my opinion) it become less interesting.

    About your group presentation, Ipin done great motivation session, besides that he also entertained us. hehehehe
