Reflection about past teaching experiences

What is happening
in the classroom?
During my teaching practicum, I observed that most of my
students had low levels of English language proficiency.
Therefore, I interpret that students low language proficiency
levels is directly related to students vocabulary. Sometimes
student did not understand what they read and that makes
their reading meaningless. In addition, when I asked in Bahasa
Melayu(BM) they will response in BM with a lot of great
explanation. Thus, I concluded that student have limited
vocabulary to speak in English language.
Am I giving my
what they need?
In my teaching sessions I will give an explanation by acting it
out or giving a gesture so that the student will understand what
it meant. Sometime I will show them a video for the
explanation by searching on the internet at that particular time
but I think it will disrupt my teaching session as it will waste a
lot of time.
What do they really
think about the
I think they did not like my lessons I because I will try to use
English Language 100% in the teaching. Even in the
explanation part of lesson I tried to use synonym to make they
understand what I am explaining but it seem majority of them
did not understand.
What do they expect
from me as a
I think they expect me to do translation method from English to
BM in my lesson rather than looking to the dictionary
What would they like
more of/or less of?
I think at the part of the presentation stage students were
really interested in the lesson as I used computer to teach, but
in the practice stage student show less interest in doing it as
they did not like to do handout exercise. So I assume that
student like me in using ICT in teaching.
What are they
ways of learning?
Thus, I think they will a prior input (vocabulary) before my
teaching sessions so that they will understand better in the
lesson and the teaching and learning will run smoothly.

Briefly restate your
problem situation
