Sometimes the teacher also used another references like some pictures or video obtained from the internet as additional media for learning
MEASUREMENT AND EVALUATION SYSTEM
For measurement and evaluation system in PMRMS-South have four quarters for the final assessment. The first quarter usually in August/September, the second quarter in October/November, the third quarter in January/February and the last fourth quarter in March/April. For each quarter there will be periodical test. It rill be held for two days because for one day the pupils will have four subject to do.

The teaching plan of Advertisement & Propaganda and Cause and Effect consist of the objectives of the lesson, the subject matter, the procedures which are preliminary activities, reviewing, development of the lesson, generalization, application (activities) and evaluation in the end.
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.
PMRMS South used the K to 12 curriculum, this is the curriculum from the DepEd from the government in the Philippines. Basic Education Program K to 12.
Sometimes the teacher uses the K to 12 curriculum with modification. The teacher adapt the curriculum with the situation happened in the school

Final Demo :
PROCEDURES OF TEACHING
The procedure when i have my practice teaching there are:
- Greeting. The teachers will greeting the pupils first and then the pupils answer it.
- Preliminary activities. The teacher and the pupils doing some pronunciation drill and reviewing from the lesson that they had before.
- Explain the objectives of the lesson
- Motivation such as video, song, pictures or others
- Lesson Proper, the teacher, and the pupils discuss together the topic.
- Activities for the pupils, it can be group activity or individuals activity.
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.
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.
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.
PROCEDURES OF PRACTICUM
The program is held for more and less 1 month. There are 4 stages of practicum, first is orientation and observation, second is teaching assistant, third is teaching in the classroom and the last is an evaluation or final demonstration and reflection
OUTCOMES OF PRACTICUM
From this practicum, I can get a lot of experiences. I got a lot of confidence to speak in english tha before, I also improved my english skill, got more english skill. I also learned how to deal with the pupils, whilw in the class or outside the class. I can develop my teaching skills and pedagogic also, how to manage the class. I also got a new family here, my critic teachers, my pupils, my friends, my coordinator, and all the faculty staff of Capiz State University.
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.
Also how to conduct the class full in english, it is my first experience.
I’m really grateful to join this program, no regret at all. I really got a lot of experiences after I join this program and learned a lot of things also. This program is very useful for other people who want to explore and need to improve and learn new pieces of knowledge, especially when you want to teach in other countries in Southeast Asia.
Last but not least, I really appreciate and want to say big thank you for all of you who help me from the beginning to the end of this program. For the committe of Sea Teacher Program, the faculy staffs from Ahmad Dahlan University, Capiz State University, PMRMS South, my buddies, and my fellow delegates from Indonesia and Thailand ❤
