PEDAGOGICAL CONTENTS

TEACHING METHODS OF THE TEACHER THAT I OBSERVED

There are several methods used by the teacher in PMRMS South. From what I observed there are presentation method, discussion method, expository method,  discovery learning. In the presentation method, the teacher delivers the content of the materials directly to the pupils.  But mostly the method that is used is discussion method, the pupils really like this method because they can share and exchange their opinion to the others. The pupils become active and critical in the learning process.

THEIR LEARNING MATERIALS AND INNOVATION

The teacher has already prepared the lesson plan and materials one week before the lesson, It will easier for the teacher. Most of the materials are from the books, but sometimes the teacher also adds pictures, sounds, or video. usually, the teacher uses powerpoint presentation as a media to teach the pupils because all class was already provided with the projector and speaker. The teacher also uses game motivation, game fill in the blank and others. The teacher is well managed and prepared for the learning innovation that makes the pupils don’t get bored.

SOURCES OF LEARNING AND TECHNOLOGY USED BY THE TEACHERS

The sources of learning that uses are from the books and the internet. The books were provided by the DepEd. The teacher makes the presentation for each topic. And the technology that used to deliver the material is a laptop to organize the presentation, projector to show the presentation and loudspeakers.

AUTHENTIC ASSESSMENT USED BY THE TEACHERS

The authentic assessment that used is a periodical test or examination for all pupils in every last quarter.

TEACHING PRACTICE

PROCEDURES OF TEACHING

The procedure when i have my practice teaching there are:

  1. Greeting. The teachers will greeting the pupils first and then the pupils answer it.
  2. Preliminary activities. The teacher and the pupils doing some pronunciation drill and reviewing from the lesson that they had before.
  3. Explain the objectives of the lesson
  4. Motivation such as video, song, pictures or others
  5. Lesson Proper, the teacher, and the pupils discuss together the topic.
  6. Activities for the pupils, it can be group activity or individuals activity.
  7. Generalization
  8. Evaluation
  9. Assignment

TIME MANAGEMENT AND ORGANIZING ACTIVITIES

15For each subject it has 50 minutes. I divided it into three part, for opening (10 minutes) such as greeting, preliminary activities, the objectives and motivation, the second part is main activities (25 minutes) and the third part is closing (15 minutes) such as generalization, evaluation, and assignment.

PROBLEM-SOLVING

The problem that I faced is how to deal with 43 pupils.  When teaching the pupils sometimes the students are too enthusiastic about the lesson and it makes noise. But I learned from my critic teacher, how to solve kind of this condition. Just as simple as the clap, do and create your own clap, so the pupils will follow you and not making any noisy condition again after that. The second problem is because we have a different accent to talk, there are some English word that we pronounce a little different, the during the learning process I keep asking even to my critic teacher and my buddy about how the correct pronounce in here.

CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT

To attract the attention of the pupils, I used kpop materials on my topics, such as BTS advertisement for my Advertisement and Propaganda topic. The pupils especially the female pupils really like and can understand about the topic given. I also walk around the class to make sure that the pupils still and keep focus on the topic. To manage the class I also use any kind of clap, I was taught by my buddy like “Aling dunesia clap” and others.  The pupils really like icebreaking like clap and other games or activities.

SUMMARY AND SUGGESTION

PURPOSE OF PRACTICUM

The purpose of the practicum is to develop teaching skills and pedagogy, to encourage and to practice English skills, to gain a broader regional, to diverse teaching and learning stuations and opportunities. It really meets my need. I really want to go abroad, have the experiences of teaching in the different country, I also want to practice my English skill and challenge my self. I never live far from my parents before, and after one month there I know hows the feeling of homesick, missing your family and your friends. But then here I learned a lot, I learned how to overcome it. I learned how to teaching using English, how to manage the class, how to solve any problem in the class. I also learn about the differences not only in the education system but also in cultural social life.

THE CHALLENGES OF PRACTICUM

The challemges of the practicum is when first I know that I will teach in Grade 6 with the subject English, because in my registration form before it is grade 4 and the subject is Science. What I’m afraid of in the beginning is “how if my pupils in grade 6 is more better in english than me?” but because of my critic teacher and my coordinator I can overcome my insecurities. Both of them was a great woman, they always give me some suggestion and I really really learned a lot of things from them.

#12 CLOSING CEREMONY SEA TEACHER PROGRAM IN CAPSU, PHILIPPINES

Hello! Mabuhay!

I don’t feel like it’s been the last day I joined this program. And here are the end of the event, which is closing ceremony huhu. Actually, at the closing ceremony, there was an event for reflection, all student exchange participants were asked to give a simple speech about reflection and just about things that we had learned and emphasized for a whole month here.

Honestly for this speech I was really nervous because I had never participated in a program like this before and was perched in front of great people here, but it must be dealt with yes!

This closing event starts with the greeting of the President, Vice President and then continues by the reflection of each student.

Being an exchange student is really an unforgettable experience for the university student, both for the learning process and broadening of horizons

After that, its time for the stage haha, all of the exchange students must perform either to sing or dance for their culture. Me and Neneng have prepared from 2 days ago, we want to perform the song of Javanese songs and dance to the Manuk Dadali

Next is the footage of our performance

At the end of the event, the students and the faculty staff giving gifts to each coordinator, mentor, critic teacher from every school and also student exchange students. I also got the certificate from Ma’am Editha C. Alfon the President of Capiz State University.

After this closing we were also given the opportunity to visit in one of the mosques in this city Roxas too, the mosque that we are going to visit is located in Tanque, near from PMRMS Soth, the school where I internship there

This is the atmosphere of the mosque in Tanque

Mabuhay! Still with me here on my 23rd day joining the Sea Teacher Program at CAPSU, Philippines.

So today, Friday 1 February 2019 we have an agenda to be a speaker on the showcase of talents at CAPSU’s Main Campus. After yesterday we were walking around the city of Ilo-ilo hihi. Tired? No haha ​​because we enjoyed it while walking before with other friends.

Oiya, so on this Friday’s event, we (Neneng and I) were asked by Ma’am Grace Galagate as the coordinator of the main campus to present about our country, Indonesia. So later we will present about the geography, culture, food, other things about Indonesia and the similarities and differences between Indonesia and the Philippines. And because the day before we had a tour, and the previous day we had a final demo, our preparations were only one night, haha. But yeah it’s okay because we are also helped by Daisy hihi.

And yup after one night working for PPT, it was finally finished at 12 am, and we continued to redeem a little at 5 am hehe. At 8 am me, Neneng and Daisy go to Main Campus with a tricycle, the distance is not too far, about 7 minutes. After arriving, it turned out the gymnasium was in full with the existing students. and jeng, jeng , jeng it is time for us to go forward for the presentation. Nervous? Yes, obviously! XP

#10 ILO-ILO TOUR

Do you know where is Ilo-ilo? Ilo-ilo is a province in Western Visayas, just like capiz but it’s not capiz. It takes 2-3 hours to go there from Roxas city.

On Friday, January 31st. Me, Neneng and all of the exchange students from Indonesia and Thailand in Capsu were going to ilo-ilo city, with our coordinators from each campus.

Because of a long trip, we were required to prepare at 4 in the morning.

We departed using 3 campus cars, I happened to be with friends from the campus of Pontevedra, they were Melisa, Pamela, and David. All five of us are also from the campus in one city you know, the city of Yogyakarta. I was also accompanied by the coordinator of Dayao, namely Ma’am Doreen.

After traveling we visited one of the churches at ilo-ilo, the Jaro cathedral, and we also took a walk in the market which was in front of the cathedral. Lagao-lagao or dayan-dayan hihi.

After that we headed to ilo-ilo museu, in this place we can see the artistic works of the artists at ilo-ilo and also various artifacts or historical heritage items from the ilo-ilo city in this western visayas.

#9 GOOD BYE PMRMS-SOUTH

It didn’t feel like this was my last week at this South PMRMS, so on Monday 28th January, there was a program recognition day. So recognition day is the day of sharing their report card. Every year there are 4 session recognition days, this recognition day is held after the periodical test. This system is a little different in Indonesia, if in Indonesia in elementary school there is a distribution of 2 times each year. But if here every year there are 4 times the recognition day. it is being held 1st on August / Sep, 2nd on October / Nov, 3rd on January / Feb, 4th on March / April.

For recognition days which are 1.2 and 3 are done in class, in the afternoon in their last hours at 3-4 pm. The school provided ribbon rewards such as perfect attendance, complete uniform award, with honor, high honors and highest honors for the pupils.

Well on this occasion I was fortunate to be able to experience how exciting 3rd recognition day is. So for the program, it takes place in the classroom, the parents waiting around the classrooms and waiting for the turn for their son or daughter’s name to be called. Parents or guardians come and provide ribbon rewards and certificates of recognition previously given by class teachers to their son or daughter. For the preparation of this event, it is carried out by all students and their class teachers, by decorating as much as possible with all its contents.

Neeext, on Wednesday 30 January is the final day of my demonstration! After all the previous preparations I had until now, the class I’m going to teach for the final demo is Rizal Class, but before that, I was given the opportunity to teach in the previous class, as well as a farewell because today is my last day in PMRMS-South. In section Roxas and Mabini I really spend my time well there, so sad that I didn’t have time to say goodbye to grade 6 section Arroyo huhu 😦

The following is the material that I prepared in advance for the final demo

Powerpoint Presentation Final Demo

And yup after that nervousness, this is going to be my moment! I talk to my self haha

I was told by my coordinator if you are nervous just smiling and smiling. She said because smiling can stretch our stiff muscles, and yes! Its really works on me hehe. In the beginning, I was really nervous but after that, I feel really enjoy with my pupils even if there were 6 supervisors at the back. Here are some pictures of me when I do my final demo

And yes this picture was taken after I finished my final demo

After eleven days I internship at this school I really got a lot of experiences. I became aware of this education system, especially elementary school in Roxas City, Capiz, Philippines. In the class that I observed in class 6, there were several subjects, namely ESP, English, Filipino, Science, TLE, MAPEH, Araling Panglipunan, and Math. The education system here ran from the Department of Education. I also got information that for classes 1-3 lessons were taught using the mother language, and grades 4-6 used English, except for ESP and Araling Panglipunan lessons that use the national language, Tagalog.

Here I learn a lot, I can practice my English skills both for teachers and students, then I can also learn how to handle a class especially using English. Teacher and students here are also friendly, and special for my critic teacher Maam Gina Nobleza who has shared a lot of knowledge with me, thank you for encouraging me during my internship here, and for my lovely students, thank you also for the cooperation, I really appreciate that I will miss youuuu for sure!

#8 PARTICIPATING ON EXTENTION TUL-ID PROGRAM IN DAYAO, CAPIZ STATE UNIVERSITY

Hi Mabuhay!

I would like to tell you about my experience in joining Extention Program that was held by Dayao Satellite College. This program was purposed for 3rd – 4th year of college students that majoring in elementary education. Where they were given the chance to practice their ability to teach. This program was held once a week, on Friday. The session was based on the campus and the school’s agreement.

I had the chance to join this program twice. The target of this program was to teach the student how to read, write, vocabulary and another topic for 1st  to the 3rd-grade student that was categorized as a slow learner.

1st IN DYDMRMS (Don Ynocencio A. Del Rosario Memorial School )

On Friday, January 18th, around 1 pm, the group of the college student and some of the supervisor from Dayao departed to DYDMRMS that was located around 2 KM from Dayao campus. We go there by tricycle. The tricycle was the main transportation in Roxas, Capiz. It was quite alike Bajaj in Indonesia, but I thought that the shape of this vehicle was quite unique :

And do you know it? One unit of tricycle could contain more than 12 people! Could you imagine how crowded it is?

Once we get there, I had the chance to help to teach how to read and write for 1st grader along with another elementary education major from Dayao

It was funny how I was supposed to teach the Tagalog language to the student when I didn’t quite understand it. Such the words: adlaw, itlog, matinlo, etc. Luckily, my friend taught me the meaning of those words afterward. And that’s it, my program in DYDMRMS was finished!

 In the Neeeeext week, I also participated in the same program, but in a different school. This time I’d got the chance to practice teaching in Libas Elementary school.

2nd IN LIBAS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

The distance from the Campus to this school was quite far. Around 4-5 km and the environment of this school was quite saddening. This school was initially built for the citizen around which was admittedly quite poor. The access to the school was hard, we must go through small alleyway and some ladder because the location is somehow isolated. But this doesn’t decrease the spirit of the student to study even for a bit! although they go to school without a uniform and only wearing ordinary clothes. The topic that was taught was the same as those from DYDMRMS, they were taught to read, write, and Tagalog vocabulary. I also helped to teach how to read fluently along my friends from Dayao, beam from last year and second year.

Joining this program taught me how important education is for life, to  Never surrender to reach your dream and open my eyes to be more thankful for everything that you have.

#7 MY SECOND WEEK IN PMRMS-SOUTH

21st – 24th of January was the second week of my internship in PMRMS South Elementary School, on Monday, I had a chance to help ma’am Gina Nobleza teaching in her class the topic in the first session in Rizal’s, was context clue, and then in the following session, I helped to teach in Roxas, Mabini and Arroyo with the same topic, Context clue

Context clue was a quite challenging topic, for the pupils. each class had a different reaction to the topic based on their ability that they had. Grade 6 Rizal’s class was a superior class, which the student were those that were chosen based on their performance in the previous year

on Tuesday, I got the chance to help to teach in Ma’am Gina’s class again with a different topic that is a characteristic trait. The pupils seem to be more enthusiastic about the topic in Rizal’s class. the teacher taught the pupils with power point and Microsoft wort on the class’s assignment.

I got the opportunity for assistance in the class taught by Ma’am Gina which is section Roxas, Mabini, and Arroyo in Grade 6.

on Wednesday, I had the chance to teach in Rizal’s class with a topic that my critic teacher offer, the topic I chose was advertisement and propaganda. before I started teaching, there were things that I needed to prepare such as lesson plan, procedure of teaching, time management and what kind of activities that will be implemented in class I had already made the lesson plan in the previous week, I had prepared the topic and the powerpoint that I was going to use, I also chose some example for advertisement and propaganda that were quite popular for teen these days, such as coca cola’s advertisement that was starred by BTS ( Korean boyband). it’s hard to deny that Korean wave was such a hit even for elementary students.

Below were my lesson plan and power point that I prepared for my first practice teaching in here :

Lesson Plan

Powerpoint Presentation

And below were my documentation when I was teaching in grade 6 section Rizal on Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019.

My second week here in PMRMS South was really fun and interesting, I began to get close to pupils. we also exchange information and opinions about many things like culture in the Philippines, culture in Indonesia, artists we know about and others. Our connection is also very connected, you know, about the KPOP world, especially Boyband BTS! ha ha. Besides that I also understand about how learning takes place in this school, the teacher uses power point as the media used, while the learning stages are: prayer, talents show, showing the objectives of the lesson, reviewing, explain about the topic, practicing, activities, and evaluation.

In the learning process, the teacher also uses various kinds of game innovations, such as dividing male and female groups, playing quizzes, use online games and so on. The teacher is very clever and competent in managing the class, mastering of the material presented. The teacher facilitates the pupils in accordance with the topics discussed. so that students also easily understand the material conveyed through these games, pupils also do a lot of activities both quiz questions, activities, and evaluations because it was student-centered based learning.

Here some of the pictures of me and my pupils in Grade 6 – Rizal :
