JOURNAL : Many disruptive behaviors in the classroom can be alleviated before theybecome serious discipline problems. Such behaviors can be reduced by the teacher’sability to employ effective organizational practices. Such practices are at the heart of theteaching process and are essential to establishing and maintaining classroom control. As a student teacher, I had seek the permission of two English teachers of t SKSeribong, PuanNormahbinti Ibrahim and Puan Salina binti Ibrahim to do someobservations. The observations of the English lesson s were including watching themprovides instructions and interacts with the children, watching the whole class ofstudents, or watching individual students during various experiences they participate induring the mathematics class. I had saw evidence of disruptive behavior when the teacher was teaching. I hadlisted what I observed and comment how the teacher alleviated the disruptions as inthe Table 1.1 below: Table 1.1 No. Observations with specific disruption Actions of teacher The teacher told the The students were scramble when asking a students to raise their 1. question to the teacher. hand one by one and wait for the turn.

During the observations, I also had observed some of the abilities of the teacherthat contribute to the effective handling of the class. Refer table 1.2 below :Table 1.2 Why do you think thoseNo. Qualities of the teacher in handling the class abilities are effective? i. It can avoid the students from making noise.

Deeply from my hear, in my own personal opinion, I think there are manyreasons why the students show disruptive behaviors. First is the way of teaching by theteacher. Many teachers did not realize that maybetheir teaching technique occurs in aone way communication. So the student will lose their attention to the learning process.Second, there are a group of intelligent students in the classroom. Maybe they havelearnt the topic that their teacher wanted to teach so they feel bored and started todisturb other students. Third, the condition of the classroom was not conducive forlearning. So the mood of the students will go down and did not want to follow thelearning session by the teacher. All the actions taken by the teacher effective in stopping the children frommisbehavior.The first method is the teacher has changed the style of teaching wherenow there was two way communications between the teacher and the students. So thestudents will pay more attention to the learning process. The second method is theteacher always reminding and warning the students to give their full attention in theclassroom. So the students will feel afraid to misbehavior such as disturbing theirfriends. The third method is the teacher told all the students to clean up the classroom.Only after the classroom, already in clean and tidy then the teacher will teach them. Inother words, we need a conducive area for learning process to take place. One of the misbehavior is the students are disturbing their friends during thelearning process. First of all, I will find out the reason why they disturb their friends. Ifthey bored with my teaching, then I will try to make it more interesting but if they disturbtheir friends just for fun,then I will give them a warning and always reminding them notto disturb they friend. If they still do not listen, then I will scold them. If they stillunchanged, then I will proceed this case to the school administrators.
Based on my observations, below are the list and comment on the activities the pupilsliked most while they werelearning. No. Activities Comment - it is a normal reaction by asking. When we do not know about something and we really want to know it so we Question and Answer session (Q & A) ask a question. Feel 1. 1.1 teacher ask, students answer need to know. 1.2 students ask, teacher answer - by asking, the students will be more understand about the topic and the teacher also will know the problems face by the students. -the students love to copy notes. 2. Copy notes from the blackboard - it will make easier for the students to make a revision after the class. -the students were really excited to do because they wanted to test their knowledge about the 3. Do the exercise in the exercise book topic. - they wanted to compare the answer with their friends.
-the questions were more difficult and attract the attention of the students to answer it. 4. Do the past years question. - the students love to insipid themselves to answer a more harder question. -safe time and energy because the task given was distribute among 5. Being in a group the members. - the potency to make mistakes was low. Besides, Not all the students were behaved and participated in all theactivities. Like I said before, there was a student that alwayslikes to isolate herself.When everyone were enjoyed do the activities, she just sat at her chair and do not doanything. She was a quite person. She just reacts after given order by the teacher for afew times. There were also a group of three students that always love to tease theirfriends. They just do it for fun. The teacher really worked very hard to control the wholeclass and success. During myobservation I conclude that there is a relationship between away of teaching and pupil’s misbehavior. From my observation, the teachers thatpracticed an interesting technique of teaching do not face any problems with theirsstudents. They can control their students very well. It is because the students find outthat the learning was so fun and enjoyed. But it is different with the teachers thatpracticed an old technique of teaching like “chalk and talk”. They faced a problem tocontrol their students. When the students feel bored on the teaching, then they startedto misbehavior. As a conclusion, the way of teaching affected the student’s misbehavior.
