1.7 Teaching Plan

My cooperating teacher does not use a lesson plan when she is teaching. She just uses books as a basis for teaching. She discuss her lessons based on what is on the book or what she knows about, but as for me, since it is required for me to have a lesson plan and it is also my basis on what and how to teach, she made me make a lesson plan to teach in class.

2. Pedagogical Contents

2.1 Teaching Methods of the teacher that you observed

My cooperating teacher, Ms. Gitri always starts her class with a greeting. Then she will ask how her pupils are, and when everyone is settled, she then starts her class. Since technology like projectors are not much, and unavailable in the school, Ms. Gitri uses flashcards when having her discussions. She also uses books and usually let her pupils read an English dialogue depending on what kind of English dialogue is suitable for them. Then lastly, she will have an assessment about the lesson being discussed.

2.2 Their Learning materials and innovation

The materials that are used for teaching and learning are traditional materials since the school has only 1 projector and laptop to be used in discussions. So specifically, the teachers in the school uses books and other models when teaching a lesson.

The teachers in the school use books that are based on the curriculum they have which is the 2013 curriculum. The teachers based their lessons on books of the school or they can add lessons which are on other books. Just like on my cooperating teacher, she uses both of the school book and the book she own which is also accurate on different grade levels.

4. Teaching Practice

4.1 Procedures of Teaching

Everytime I have my discussion, I start my class with an English greeting, then attendance checking. Afterwards, I review the lesson or ask the pupils about their pre-understanding of the lesson that is going to be tackled. Then I have a motivation where the pupils play a game related to the lesson, like Charades or Message Relay. After the motivation, I then discuss the lessons to the pupils using the cartolina as an Instructional Material and every table, I give them printed pictures about the lesson so that it won’t be hard for them to participate, and also for them to understand the lesson better.

4.2 Time Management and Organizing Activities

I have 1 hour and 25 minutes to discuss my lessons to every grade levels, and even an hour is hard to manage if there is a language barrier, so to manage my time very well, I manage my time by giving allotments to every activities given. I give 10-15 min. for motivation and other preliminary activities, and 15-20 min. for the discussion of lessons, and also about 15 mins. to have their activities.

4.3 Problem Solving

Having a language barrier between the pupils and the teacher is very difficult to cope because of the differences in language and in the way each other understand, and that is the hardest problem I have encountered during my teaching practice. At first, it was very hard to communicate with them when having class discussions because every word I say marks a confusion on their faces, so what I did on the next days during my class discussions, I print out pictures of my lessons and also with the help of body gestures when discussing, it helped them to fully understand the lessons I teach.

4.4 Classroom Management

Classroom management is very important because it will keep the class organized, attentive, and be productive.

“When a teacher is inside of the classroom, she should always be the head-in charge” this is the quote from my teacher that I always keep in mind when I am inside the classroom. So as a teacher, I always keep my voice loud so that everyone in the room can hear me. Luckily, my pupils are not too loud and naughty and everytime I say “Listen, class” they always keep their mouths shut and listen attentively to the discussions. They always follow instructions I say and they are also polite and cooperative so I have no problem in managing the class.

5. Summary and Suggestions

5.1 Purposes of Practicum

The purpose of Practicum is to help Student Teachers to become

· More aware of the different cultures and attributes of the pupils, and experience different people and their cultures.

· Be knowledgeable in dealing and handling pupils

· Be confident of their talents and capabilities as teachers

· Be prepared on the real field of teaching

This SEA Teaching Practice helps us develop in our own ways by the help of different people of different country and culture, in opening our eyes and minds of what teaching is all about. It helps us be globally competent in ways of handling, interacting, and especially teaching.

5.2 Procedures of Practicum

In order to have a successful practicum, a person must be ready in all ways. Ready in terms of financial, intellect, and must be brave to face the different country, people, culture and belief. In our practice teaching, the first week in our host school is Observation, the second week is for teaching assistant, third week for Classroom Teaching, and the fourth and last week is the Teaching in Classroom and Reflection and lesson Learned.

5.3 Outcomes of Practicum

The outcomes of my practicum are very helpful and memorable on my part because I got the chance to face what teaching is all about and what it feels to work in a foreign country. I also got to engage with my pupils and interact with them more, and know them better during my 4 weeks of stay. I have learned many lessons throughout this practicum eventhough it was quite tough at first dealing with them because of the differences of language, but later on when we all got the chance to get close with my pupils and have fun while learning, everything else flowed into places.

Another outcome of my practicum which is very essential is I got to know more people and be friends with them. Me and other Filipino participants from other places got to know more and also became close friends because of this program and also this is my first time to have foreign friends and be able to share experiences together during this practicum, and I am so thankful for SEAMEO for they have given us a chance to meet new friends and experience this great memorable journey.

5.4 Challenges of Practicum

The most challenging part of this practicum is the differences of language or the language barrier. In my host school, teachers can’t speak and understand English that’s why its hard for me to communicate with them, as well as to pupils because they use Bahasa Indonesian when they talk or when they interact during class discussions. So for me, when I discuss our lesson, most of the students get confused of what I am talking so I need to act or make some body gestures in order for them to understand. And fortunately, during my 2nd week of stay in the school, the pupils are very cooperative and interactive and they really try their best to speak English.

5.5 Overall impression

This SEA-Exhange Program for Student Teachers is very interesting and very helpful because aside from visiting new places and meeting new people, we also had the chance to experience the life away from my country—Philippines. We had a chance to experience their cultures and beliefs which is very different from ours, and had the chance to teach pupils in a very challenging way.

5.6. Suggestion for future achievement

I really hope that this SEA-Teacher Program will continue in the years to come. I hope that this program will grow and foster and will help other students to experience what we have experienced which is very joyous and memorable.
