Tenth Reflection

Source: [google.co.id]

Week ten is the first time I couldn’t attend the class just because of my unwell condition. What I have learned with this situation? From my friends’ explanation, I know that there are three causes that could promote students’ motivation in learning those are students’ self-regulation, teacher characteristics and classroom climate variables. This session focused on students’ self regulation.  Singer and Bashir (1999) state in their article that self-regulation is considered a “meta” construct that is specifically defined as “a set of behaviors that are used flexibly to guide, monitor, and direct the success of one’s performance”. When I’m trying to relate it in students’ condition, I believe that students always need motivation, thought process and also strategies to reach their personal goals. That’s why they need a teacher in their class. In the learning process there are two kinds of learning focus those are Mastery Focus and Performance Focus. Mastery focus learning only focus in the learning process (how the students engage in the class) and Performance focus learning only focus in the performance (getting high grade). In my opinion those focuses is supporting each other in the process increasing students’ motivation and this is one of teachers’ job that should balancing that’s part. I should highlight this part because I just realized most of my teacher always use score that I’ll get in motivation time.

 

Reflection week 10

At the 10th meeting of MMSEL course we learn about what kind of classroom, learner, and teacher that can build motivation to learn in school.

First activity, I wrote about classroom that support students to have motivation in learning. We agree that tidy, clean, and comfortable classroom will support students. Besides that the relationship among students, students to teacher will influence students motivation too. If the member of the class care to each other and eager to help each other it will motivate students to learn in that class.

Second is about learner. We have to realize, even though if the classroom and the teacher support to motivate students to learn it is not enough. Students as the learner need to have self regulation to learn. Especially for students in Senior High School, they are still teenager but they have to learn to be responsible for their self. They have to realize that learning will give advantages for their future.

Third, we learn about teacher perspective. We need teacher that eager to motivate students. For example, the teacher want to give extra time for students to teach them about the materials. Teacher need to care to students condition, do not judge students if they get bad mark. The teacher need to be aware to the factors of students’ laziness. Become a teacher is become a super hero. It means that teacher are expected to help students who need them very much.

Reflection Week 10th

On last meeting I came to class at 10.10 AM, it is mean that I was late but I could still come and join the class. Well, I could join all activities that conducting on that class and I remember most of the lesson on that day.

Motivation on the class was coming from three aspects, start from teacher, class condition and students’ self regulation. These are aspects that influenced motivation to learn in the class.

First aspect that influenced motivation in learning process is teacher characteristic. Students need motivated teacher to make their motivation increase. For example teacher who has good attitude, professional when teaching, friendly, etc. well students will be motivated to came to the class, because of teacher characteristic.

Next aspect is class condition. The condition of the class also can effect students’ motivation. Class conditions consist of classmates, class facilitation, and class environment. If all of these are in good condition, so it will also make all population in the class motivated to do learning.

And last aspect was students self regulation. This aspect is about how students performance to do learning in the class. This aspect is also consist of how students set their objective when their conducting learning process. So, if how good students performance and students’ objective, so it also influences learning process motivation.

Well, for getting good motivation when the learning process conducting, so these there aspect must be good also.

Reflection week 10

In week 10, we learn about Class structure, Self-regulated Learners and Teacher Characteristics. First activity, we write our experiences based on guiding question given. For group A, write about motivating classroom, group B write about self-regulation, group C write about motivating teacher.  I write my experience about teacher who motivates me. My teacher, who is also my homeroom teacher taught religious course in my class. He is a holy person. Every time he teaches, my class became quiet and peaceful. His belief that really influences us is we have to become honest, sincere and responsible person.

We share our experience while Ms. Lydia wrote the key of our story.  After that about four people from same group gather and do discussion to be presented as two stay two stray method. My group discuss about teacher characteristic that can increase students motivation on mastery goal and performance goal. The other group discuss about class condition that can support students and self-regulation of students.

Differences between mastery goal and performance goal are in mastery goal, success means students gave improvement in understanding, while in performance goal success means have high grades and doing better than other. Teacher oriented in mastery goal is students learning while in students’ performance is students’ performance

In teacher case, to make students more motivated, teacher has to be more care to her students; she also has to have expectation to her students. Teacher has to have beliefs that cause students learn better.

Classroom condition that can support students is a class which is cozy, have an appropriate size, temperature etc., and have adequate facilitate to learn.

Self-regulation is the process to set goals, the process, the strategies, the behaviors, etc. Self-regulation requires a huge responsibility of oneself.

That’s all my reflection abou week ten. Thank you.

Reflection Week 10

In the week 10, I have to make a reflection again about what I have learnt in MMSEL class after Mid Test. The first activity, Ms Lidya divided us into 3 groups. The first group will be the classroom environment group, second will be the teacher group, and the last will be the students group. Every group have to reflect what are the things that influence motivation to learn something based on the theme of each group. My group was the students group and we have to reflect it individually.

After we did the reflection, we share it to another group, so we made some groups that consist of 3 persons that come from different group theme. After that, we sharing together with Ms. Lydia. Throug this sharing I got more information about what are the things that will influence students to learn.

The next activity is Ms Lydia asked us to divide again each grou into two small group that consist of 3-4 persons. We were asked to find the literature about mastery goal and performance goal for class environment and teacher groups and self regulation for my group, students group.

My small group discussed and found the literature about self regulation of students based on their grade. Different grade of students sometimes influence the way of the students to make the regulation or manage their selves to increas their motivation to learn.

After we discussed it, Ms Lydia asked us to present our work with two stay two stray method. From other group that explain about mastery goal and performance group, they said that mastery goal will focus on how the environment or teacher influence the students to master the material or the concept deeper, and about the performance goal focus on how the environment or teacher influence the students to achieve the high score, the best performance and perfect result. From this activity we concluded that we as a teacher have to makes students be balance in both of those goals.

Class condition, Self regulated, and Teacher Characteristic

Thursday, November 24, 2011, was the first session of MMSEL subject after midterm. I didn’t know actually what we were going to learn at the time. It was not make me confused, because I knew we would have enjoy learning. As I guest before, we had enjoyed learning. There were varieties activities in this class. Our topic was about class structure, self regulated learner, and teacher characteristics.

In the opening session, our beloved lecture, Mrs. Lydia, divided class into three groups, A, B, and C. each of students get their group and they had to imagine then write about class structure for group A, self regulated learner for group B, and teacher characteristics for group C. We had to write the ideal condition three of part above base on our experience. Ideal condition means that it can influence our motivation to learn.

I myself was in group C, so I had to write about teacher characteristics in my imagination. In writing it, I remembered my senior high school teacher. He was an English teacher. His name is Mr. Yasin. I always remember about him, because he was a different teacher. I felt comfort when he taught me. He could burn my motivation especially in learning. I didn’t know exactly what makes him different from other teacher. He only gave students a simple concept about a meaningful life. He gave students religion value and moral value in this life. I could never forget about him, even he is not a teacher anymore.

After writing about my teacher, Mrs. Lydia asked us to join with other different group that is A and B. My partner for sharing were Faqih from group A, and Huda from group B. Faqih shared about ideal class condition. as i remember, it was consisted of value that is applied in the class such as; respect, inclusive, empathy, and integrity. Huda shared about how learning can improve his self regulated. Huda said learning about ict can improve his self regulated. It is caused he was very inrested in ICT. And through those idea, we shared each other.

After we shared each other, Mrs. Lidya asked us to join with our three of same groups that is group C. I joined with Riyan, Titiah, and Andi. As our lecture asked, we have to search the theory about good teacher characteristics that can improve students learning motivation. We have to present it to other group.

That’s all our activity on MMSEL section last week.  Suddenly, I remember about my beloved teacher (Mr.Yasin). However, he was a good teacher  that can motivate his students by explaining about  meaning of life. I miss him so much.

reflection week 10

last week i cannot come to the class because i was sick. i’m really miss this course especially the activity also my friends, 😦

In this reflection, i try to reflect the material of 10th week based on my friend explanation. My friend told me, last week she learned about self regulation, teacher characteristic and classroom environment. there are activity at that time, such as discussion group and two stay three stray. a lot of material that i missed last week. 😦 so, i searching some of the material on internet to find out the meaning of that. but, honestly i still confuse to understand it.:(

In my opinion, self regulation in learning is an important aspect of learning and achievement in academic context.Students who are self regulating are much more likely to be successful in school, to learn more also to achieve their goals. so, it is important for students feeling in control of learning and the value of intrinsic over extrinsic motivation.Beside that it is important for teacher to design classroom environment that can develop self regulation in learning.

In my opinion self regulation, teacher characteristic and classroom environment can increase student’s motivation. its related each other. it can influence each other. if talking about teacher characteristics, remain me about my teacher in senior high school. he is a good teacher for me, he have good classroom management skill, he can handle the class also make class active. besides that, he always gave positive expectation for all students in my class. he belief that all of us become success in the future. he always motivate me, to show my best in every part. friendly, humble, humor and care to all of us. he always make classroom environment become comfort, and i enjoy it. i think teacher plays an important role to make good classroom environment.

I think that’s all my reflection. 🙂
