1. Introduction If one wants to improve a skill or competence motivation is an important factor that contributes to successfully achieving this goal. Especially, when it comes to learning in the classroom motivation is key. Hence, it is neccessary that teachers know what it takes to foster the students’ motivation. In this case the effects of reading motivation will be discussed.
This strategy guides the students through the process of reading text by understanding and thinking about the text. Tankersley (2005) states that the Directed Reading Thinking Activity (DRTA) promotes higher order thinking skills and allow lecturers to know students’ thought process and experience. Moreover, it is useful for processing all types of text. Blachowich & Ogle (2008) states that the Directed Reading Thinking Activity (DRTA) gives teachers the opportunity to act as a facilitator by guiding students to think like readers. That is, they anticipate, predict and then confirm and modify their predictions as they
Rather, effective instruction demands the use of many strategies”. Successful reading teachers are cognizant of the fact that reading can be taught using a variety of methods. The classroom teacher’s verbal communicative patterns are essential in developing the student’s self-efficacy in the classroom. Self efficacy deals directly with how a student views his/her ability to prosperously consummate a particular task. The edifier-student relationship that is established in the classroom directly affects students’ motivation and achievement in reading.
7 Most reading instruction in elementary and secondary school is very focused on the understanding of the text and even in the new words or vocabulary build up. From that sense, interventions are needed by the students (Burns, Hodgson, Parker, & Fremont, 2011). The success of students in any field of acquiring skills specifically in reading can be determined through students’ motivation which could possibly be obtained by the teachers’ attitude and capability in constructing a program beneficial for each student but when teachers fail to maintain good attitude towards students then low-motivated learners are expected to fail in comprehending or understanding any form of a given printed materials Nilsen (2009). Morgan & Fuchs, 2007 emphasized
Being in front of a group of people implies a lot of preparation to deal with different kinds of learners, being flexible, adapting activities according to students’ needs, designing different materials, planning a meaningful and pleasant lesson in order for learning to occur. Good teachers have to perform different roles such as model, monitor, guide, controller, assessor or tutor, during the lesson according to the situation. As a result, good teachers need to objectively control, motivate, evaluate, guide, respect, give acceptable information, to the students and make them know they are important in the learning process so that lead students to correctly communicate in English, not only in the classroom but outside of
The students cannot achieve their academic success without comprehending what they read. In comprehending texts, the students should be monitored by their teachers; hence the way to teach comprehension should be monitored by their teachers. Teaching comprehension is an activity to teach the students to be good comprehended through some steps: selecting a text, explaining the strategy, modeling the strategy, guiding support, practicing independently and reflecting. Therefore, it can be concluded the reading comprehension is a long process. Moreover, in order to improve English skills and to get the information, students need to comprehend reading texts well.
Vocabulary teaching and learning is a continuous challenge for teachers as well as students, because traditionally there has been negligible focus on vocabulary instruction in the EFL/ESL classroom. Therefore, an increased stress on vocabulary development is vital for the English language learner in the process of language learning. Since vocabulary development is one of the essential components of language learning every student of a foreign language need to reside on vocabulary learning. Teachers of a foreign language are inevitably involved in teaching vocabulary. Syllabuses and textbooks commonly state their objectives in terms of skills, topics, etc.
It gives strategies such as reader-generated questions. Asking learners to read a text, teachers must identify information that is necessary for understanding the text, evaluate learners' prior knowledge of these necessities, and fill any gaps that are found. It will help me to plan responsive activities around reading and interpreting texts. Sharing ideas, comparing perspectives, and coming to the agreement are all ways that learners use the language of the text in meaningful ways, and therefore progress to higher levels of language proficiency and reading
A positive attitude is a valuable asset for learning. With such a feeling, the teacher will want to teach seriously, and the students will learn well too. Learning environment is one of the important factors in a learning process in the classroom. Factors affecting the learning environment are classroom management, classroom condition, peers. The reason I write this essay because the learning environment is very important in the success of learning, especially English, everything related to the place, the learning process implemented is very important, so the factors that influence or support should be able to help educators or students in a learning, especially learn English.
Teachers must be able to make clear to their students the declarative and procedural knowledge the students are meant to learn. To this end, teachers must communicate instructional goals that are challenging, and that motivate learners to align their efforts with the demands of the goal and prompt them to invest mental effort in the learning task. Students need to know why they are studying speaking. Providing them with a rationale for the causes may help them see how speaking ability relates to their daily conversation and very important to be mastered when learning foreign language. 2.4.
