REPORT At the end of August 2011, all trainee teachers from “ProgramIjazahSarjanaMudaPendidikan (PISMP)” had been given a task by“BahagianPendidikan Guru (BPG). We need to carry on the School Based Experience(SBE) in primary school that we chose for a week from 22/23 August 2011 until 26/27September 2011. All trainee teacher needs to fulfill this. The main objective of this thistask is to give us to know and feel the real situation of the school and observe theteaching and learning process in the classroom. We will know whether our learning atthe college on the aspects above is true or not when it comes to the real situation.Besides that, it will give a chance and opportunity for us to be in a school company as ateacher in a student’s view. We also need to get the information on the aspect ofclassroom management, the pattern and the way of student’s learning and the role ofteacher in aspect of student’s welfare and guidance. I had chosen the SekolahKebangsaanSeribong, Kota Bharu, Kelantan to carry outmy School Based Experience (SBE). I choose this school because it is near to myhouse. I got my classmate, Muhammad Zulhairi bin Zulkifli also carry out the SBE heretogether with another two membersfronInstitutPendidikan Guru KampusTunkuBainun.,
NajihahbintiMohdZahidi and Wan Ahmad Dani. This school also had an excellentachievement in the aspect of academic and curriculum. Besides teaching, a teacher also needs to become the manager in a classroom.Teachers need to manage the daily routine of the classroom, managing the pupils to dothe activity in the classroom, know how to arrange the seating of students and theequipment in the class, managing the movement of students in the class and teachingmaterials for teaching and learning process. Why? So that the process will be moreeffective and can control the discipline of students in the classroom. The effectiveness of teaching and learning in the classroom depends on the socialinteractions and activities between the teachers and the students. The socialinteractions that I meant are: i. Interaction between teachers and students ii. Interaction between students and students iii. Interaction between students and the materials of learning From my observation, the teachers at SekolahKebangsaanSeribong had done agreat job. They can manage their class very well. I can saw that their students werefollowed their orders. All the activities were conducted in a good situation and involvedalmost all the students in the classroom. The arrangement of the students was in a good and effective for learning to takeplace. Everyone can give their attention to the teachers without any obstacle. Theclassroom also was clean and it was good for health. All the students throw rubbish intothe dustbin outside the classroom. The interaction between the teachers and the students also were positive. Teachersmostly can delivered the information smoothly to the student while students canreceived it as maximum as they can. There were lacks of disruptive behaviors in theclassroom. The teachers also have the sense of humor, so that the teaching andlearning process will not be boring. Through this, student’semotion was controlled andenjoyed the teaching and learning process.
For those who have succeeded with flying colors; there were some learningapproaches that have been practiced. Researchers also haveproduced some effectivelearning approaches. Its up to the students to choose the learning techniques that most easily for themtoget understand and follow. Example: i. Not wasting a time even a minute ii. Bring a book wherever they go iii. Study at the early morning iv. Make a short notes v. Try to answer the last year question vi. Always ask if you do not understand vii. Always visiting the library viii. Balancing the time for academic and curriculum ix. Avoid emotional disturbance From my observation, the students at SekolahKebangsaanSeribong had practicedthe way of learning with efficiently and effectively. Why? I attended to the school at theearly of the morning, around 7.15 a.m. and I walked around the school. I saw manystudents were studied in the classroom while some of them were cleaned theclassroom. They also have a good habit where they always carry a book with themwherever they go. Thanks to their headmistress for this new renewal, so that thestudents will not waste any time without doing anything. During the teaching and learning process, I can saw that the students will raise theirhands to ask the teacher if they do not understand about something. They also alwaysspend their time at the library especially at the recess time. Overall, the SekolahKebangsaanSeribong’s students have a good practiced and anice pattern of learning. A teacher must be concerned about the welfare and the safety of the students fromother things. Teachers also must be fair to all students regardless of economic factors,physical, mental, emotional, political, social, race and religion. Teachers also must havea good physique in terms of dresses, speeches and gives a good example to students.Teachers should not teach just to get rewards. Teacher guides or teaches the studentswithout expecting a reward.
At SekolahKebangsaanSeribong, I observed that the teachers really caring for thestudents. For example, every morning, the poor students were given a free breakfastcalled “RancanganMakananTambahan (RMT). The school administrators also alwaysgive the alms during the Ramadhan. As we know, the mission of the Ministry of Education is to develop the student’spotential of a comprehensive and integrated, and developing the national educationsystem to become an international center of excellence. Therefore, teachers mustrealize the strategy of the Ministry of Education which focuses on aspects of curriculumimplementation for developing the potential of the students in terms of intellectual,physical, emotional and spiritual as a whole and integrated based on the belief in anddevotion to God. Therefore, teachers must equip themselves to become a model to the student.Besides that, the management and administration need to improve the infrastructure, sothat, the teaching and learning process can be done optimally. Through my observation, I find that all the members ofSekolahKebangsaanSeribong were practicing a very conducive style for teaching andlearning process. The teachers can manage the classroom very well, the way and thepattern of the student’s learning are good and the teachers play their role in aspects ofwelfare and guidance nicely.
