Intrinsic motivation, by contrast, comes from within the individual. Thus a person might be motivated by the enjoyment of the learning process itself or by a desire to make themselves feel better. Harmer (2012, p. 20) also adds that extrinsic motivation is the kind of motivation that is brought by the student from outside of the classroom, and intrinsic motivation is originated inside the classroom with the help of what happens in it (the activities that students take part in, or their perception of their success or failure). The objective of the teacher is to help maintain the students’ motivation by choosing the right type of activities so that students do not get bored or feel that the learning is being too easy or too
According to Harmer (2007: 24) there is not an ideal personality, but that has to do with teachers’ attitude and reactions towards events that occur during the lesson. So, the best point to consider in teachers’ personality would be demonstrating a positive attitude and their responses while taking decisions during the class, that is what students see at that moment. From their adaptability, we can take into consideration two points while describing good teachers which are, as Harmer (2007:25) discusses, the flexibility and the ability to take advantage of every single event to their favor so that help to succeed. Harmer also agrees that good teachers have to encourage motivation and respect the learner, because creating a good relationship in the class is a proof of upright rapport in the lesson. Scrivener (2005: 24) agrees that good teachers have to create an atmosphere where the empathy and the authenticity are effective to complement the rapport in a lesson.
This fact justifies these students’ apathy toward school. Most people, especially teenagers, don’t like having to conform to large restrictions set forth by authority. Students are required to learn from a very structured curriculum, which in itself causes some apathy due to the abundant restrictions, and on top of that, it is a curriculum that won’t affect most of their futures. A revised curriculum that still has class requirements, such as being required to take four years of English classes before graduation, but offers more options for college-bound and non-college bound students, such as the option between an average English class a person would see in most schools now where students learn how to analyze literature and a class that teaches communication skills, would help to reduce apathy. By providing options, students would feel less forced by authority to conform and there would be a reduced gap between school and the outside world.
Mart proposed that ‘Comprehensibility’ and ‘Acceptability’ are the main purposes of teaching grammar. In this case, comprehensibility is emphasizing on the fluency of the language, which is the ability to deliver messages to another party. On the other hand, acceptability refers to the accuracy of using English Language is highlighting the societal view towards English users with different levels of proficiency. From this, it could be seen that Mart did not only put his focus of the academic usage of grammar but also discuss the importance of grammar based on societal aspects. Furthermore, Mark also quoted a criticism on the usage of traditional method, which is Present, Practice and Produce (PPP), failed to educate learners on the application of grammar in communication.
For as long as school has been around, cheating has too. Teachers have been trying to prevent cheating for years but can not seem to put an end to it. Cheating can be stopped with the help of teachers and the cooperation of students. In some cases, students do not mean to cheat but simply cite sources wrong. Matthew Gregory says, “In more and more cases of violations, students say that they didn't intend to cheat but lacked the knowledge to properly cite work that was not their own.” It can be a little mistake that students make that can get them in academic trouble.
Due to limited knowledge about English for the students, they are afraid to use English in real life because they are scared that they would make mistakes. Also, some english teachers emphasize correct grammar more than applications in real life, this is like a two-edged sword because the students would have a well know knowledge in grammar but since the lesson is very focused on grammar, students are afraid speak English because they are scared that they would used the grammar wrong. The third list on Amatyakul 's article is social studies teachers. Social studies are supposed to be very useful in real life and applicable but since they are errors in the way of teaching, only few students are able to apply what they 've learnt in real life. This is because during lesson time there is very less idea exchanging between the teacher and students since the teachers are very dependent on the textbooks and are afraid to bring students outside the box.
(Walker, Calvin, Ramsey. 1995) Rewards are also known as positive reinforcement. Rewards were used to motivate and support students who felt like they were not very good at a subject and for the best effort. (Ching, Gregory. 2012) The importance of using rewards lies in the fact that the students will certainly gain a strong feeling of confidence.
Most students were very easy to get confused with English grammar, while grammar was needed to form a right sentence. If the students did not have grammar mastery, they would not be able to produce sentences that grammatically right. Realizing the grammar that the students had was very weak, so they feel embarrassed when they wanted to produce English sentences orally. Third problem was students’ pronunciation. They were very easy to get confused how to pronounce word correctly.
Using mother tongues helps students use their talent effectively. As a student, I observe that most of my colleague find it difficult to comprehend the significance of a subject because of unfamiliarity with English no substitute for mother tongue, introduce it in Class VIII: Governor Ram Naikhe foreign language. As a student, I observe that most of the college students find it difficult to understand the significance of a subject because of obliviousness with the foreign language, (BITAB NIAZ, 2012) Using mother tongues helps the students use their talent efficaciously. A students can apply, reading, writing, and arguing skills more productively in his/her mother tongue. Mother tongue as the basic and more effective learning instruments for the students to help them to think clearly and
Then again, the central issue talked about by the instructors is the learning state of mind and scholastic execution of the understudies. A large portion of the Orang Asli kids don't have a benefit to go to kindergarten before entering Primary 1. It doesn't just imply that they are not arranged for the formal training; they are likewise not arranged to talk the national dialect, Bahasa Malasia, as their primary language is Bahasa Semai. One of the instructors told the creator that the fundamental variable which backs off the understudies learning procedure is the dialect hindrance. Showing the Year 1 understudies is exceptionally troublesome when they are not able to speak Bahasa Malaysia.
