SUMMARY

Purposes of practicum

Being a teacher is not a means to patronize, but study with children. Being a teacher is not that should be feared by pupils but cherished, honored even to be a friend to them. There are sentences that often I hear if the teacher that is a parent of students in all schools. It correctly, but any teacher’s role should be helped by the role of parents in the home. Educating pupils with sincere and makes the child as a human being that is my goal. Not just know but can apply in their lives. As a teacher I don’t want to become a transfertor knowledge but became teachers who provide meaningful lessons for students.

Procedures of practicum

For being a student teacher, I always endeavour to implement children learn with practice, practice with children can remember more than just listening to lectures or reading a book. Not infrequently I invite kids out of classes for just a breath of fresh air and to study with outside class. The classes that I teach is the class fat, approximately 55 students per class so I usually divide the students into small group method using cooperative learning. To attract the attention of children I use video or games, never once did I use a flash-based app games and they are very enthusiastic.

Outcomes of practicum

Much experience as I can while at WVSU, from the starting teaching experience there to the streets and explore iloilo city. Classroom mangement is a hard thing I do let alone I most dislike big class. But, there I learned a lot of how to organize the classroom so that conducive, attracted the attention of the entire course and students learn not only to convey the science but to give life or meaning in any learning. I also learned responsibility, responsibility as befits a teacher who not only educate but to give affection, to make comfortable every student like her parents. SEA program-Teacher is also very helpful to improve my United Kingdom language, because here I must always use the language of the United Kingdom. Almost every weekend University always invites me to explore places that are beautiful and meaningful. We’re not just streets but we also learn a lot.

The challenges of practicum

The challenge when I teach is the management classroom. Initially I was very difficulty and almost feel like a failure because of differences in teaching of the number of pupils in my country and in my goals. But, generally give up but I learn and keep trying. The next challenge is the language. I am required to always use the language of the United Kingdom of course, frankly my experience teaching use full english was minimal but because of the demands of my learn again and again to hone English skills in order to be understood by children easily.

Overall impression

Broadly speaking, the program is very good, I as a Teacher-SEA program participants are very fortunate we can exchange culture, hone language skills United Kingdom, discovering new things, add friends, appreciate the difference and certainly get experience and can motivate other friends in order to keep the passion to become a teacher.

Suggestions for future improvement

                I’m a little bit of feeling lonely, because from my native country we were just three of us. Perhaps the Division of each campus can be equally right.
