IMPROVING STUDENTS’ SPEAKING ABILITY THROUGH ROLE PLAY Dita Nanda Rosevella 122084247 ABSTRACT This paper describes one of CLT (Communicative Language Teaching) method activities, it is role play. These days, most of students are passive in the class because they are afraid to express their feelings or thoughts. Teachers can apply role play activity which can help arouse students’ speaking ability. In addition, role play has been known as one of learning tools which is flexible to be applied because the students can do it inside or outside the classroom. Besides, the students would not feel bored because the activity is interesting and makes the situation more live.
The lesson that day presented itself as a setup for complete chaos. I was challenged to get early elementary age children to listen well and follow instructions, meanwhile their tiny fingers were wrapped around musical noisemakers! After hushing the students multiple times, and giving too much attention to a couple of students who were playing their instruments inappropriately, I realized my efforts were futile. However, I suddenly noticed the handful of quiet students who had actually followed my instructions to rest their instruments in their lap and wait for further instruction. I began to thank each of them, and lavished praise for how well they were behaving and following directions.
Struggling students are not always confident enough to ask questions. In my experience, I always found it helpful when a teacher walks around the class because if I was stuck, they were always right there to help. The teacher in this video definitely walks around to give assistance and guidance. He is also always commenting on how the students are very sharp. This is important because he creates a positive, welcoming environment when telling the students they are
Brewer (1995. Pg.2) stated "How is it that for most people music is a powerful part of their personal life and yet when we go to work or school we turn it off?" Teachers and educators have always looked for new methods of teaching in which students accept and feel comfortable with. Music is one of the ways in which students find it a way of entertainment rather than work and find it amusing and relaxed (Shen, 2009) "Music is a promising tool because it is appreciated globally, is easily accessible and is accepted by the masses." (Hall, 2010) Incorporating music into teaching English can reduce negative attitudes most students have toward English.
The brain can get distracted and off track if no music is playing. Also students seem to perform poorly when there was background noise, it is not just music that could potentially distract a student. It is just students rather choose to listen to music because it keeps a lot of people on track and focused. Nevertheless, music can benefit productivity, and motivation to get all assignments done with ease. Though some like to believe it does not help all facts seem to support it being
There are four sorts of dramatization exercises included: language games, pantomime, role playing, and simulations. In general, Gaudart (1990) found that drama techniques worked well for most teachers and class and few techniques work better in specific circumstances than in others. The author states that some variability was found in the success of different activity types with different ability and school groups. The article is concluded that dramatization exercises are useful in motivating students, holding their attention, and stimulating their creativity. However, some teachers find integrating drama activities to be difficult; convincing and training teachers in their use are essential to
When a teacher comes in a classroom, he is getting immerse into an environment which its reality sometimes can be a big challenge to work with. One of the most difficult challenges that a teacher finds in a classroom is when he asks the class to get in groups to work but most of the students don’t obey, don’t follow the teacher’s instructions or even they don’t listen what they have to do. So, those things are part of the gender variation and class discourse because if a teacher goes deeper he is going to realize which one works better if men or women and who is taking seriously his instructions. The gender variation and classroom discourse are focused on how teachers and students interact with one another, it’s the way how they use the language to talk and express themselves when they agree or disagree with anything and it shows who of them (men or women) are more sociable with people, respectful with someone else criteria and concise with their ideas. However, when a teacher comes up
My teacher often has students work silently and by themselves. I would like to have my students doing more activities and collaborating. Even though there are many aspects of my future classroom which differ from my placement, there are also pieces I would like to keep the same. First, my teacher is very good at classroom management, when she asks the class to be quiet they generally listen to her. Second, she is able to joke with her students and have fun during down times.
Few week later as this become conditioning the student will overcome the fear of humiliating in speaking English. Without a pleasant environment students will not pay concentration on study, as well as teacher cannot teach properly. But teachers can create an atmosphere where students want to learn without any difficulties like shy, been talkative, anxieties by implementing classical condition in the classroom. Now teacher can develop positive attitude what teacher teach and teachers can play their role like teaching, helping and probing easily and equally among. (W. Batsell, Dec 23, 2009) It is also easy to create situation whereby each students has the opportunity to succeed.
These activities keep students refreshed both physically and mentally. Extracurricular activities work as stress buster. To be fully involved in the studies can make students feel fatigue. Academic curriculum seems to be very vast these days, so it becomes really necessary to give some refreshing treatments to students. Such activities keep students happy and being happy itself means keeping depressions and stress at bay.
