Abstract

The aim of this paper is to investigate the development of reflective thinking in the first six years of a beginner teacher’s career. The qualitative study involved a beginner teacher of English in a primary school, who was selected on the basis of availability. Changes in reflective thinking by means of a structured reflective diary after three and six years were studied. In the reflective diary created at the end of the third and sixth years, the teacher had to answer the following questions: What am I doing well? Why? How do I know I have to do so? What do I have problems with? Why? Where do I make mistakes? What chances of development do I have? The processing of the diaries was done using content analysis, combining deductive and inductive logic. The basis of main codes and sub-codes was set up, also relying on triangulation. The reliability of coding was ensured by intra-coding. The results showed that after the third year, reflections appeared at a technical level, usually answering the question “what?”. After the sixth year, the reflections were more complex, and often dealt with insights about teachers’ activity. Besides “what?” questions “why?” and “how?” were in focus. The results have shown that during continuous reflection teachers may develop and improve a system combining theoretical and practical skills that can embrace the entirety of pedagogical work. The results show that continuous reflection contributes to the differentiation of pedagogical knowledge. The paper addresses those who are interested in the exploration, analysis, and development of reflective thinking.

Abstract

Decentralization is a management reform that is widely believed to promise a range of benefits in transforming society and the effectiveness of local governance. By 1999, nearly all countries in the world were experimenting with decentralization, at least in policy level. Education is inevitably one of the sectors that has been affected by decentralization. In a devolved education system, schools are given both autonomy and responsibilities in decision-making authority. At school level, those who receive the transferred-authority are mainly principals, and hence, they have broadened-roles and responsibilities. However, research and literature drawn from more than four decades show that a devolved environment urges for accountability that is oftentimes regarded as pressure and dilemma by school leaders and teachers. As a result, there is an urgency to have a systemic solution that acknowledges the important role of principals, clarifies the responsibilities and roles of principal, and develops capacity of principals.

Abstract

This study explored on how the transfer of Indonesian Address Terms (ATs) influenced the production of English ATs and in what ways Indonesian students accommodated the acquisition of the English ATs during the study abroad. This study focused on the five participants who were recruited through the purposive sampling. Designed to capture the participants’ experiences, this study employed a qualitative case study approach. The written discourse completion test and semi-structured interviews were employed to look at the pragmatic transfer and the acquisition of the address terms. The findings indicated that students’ home cultures of showing politeness by addressing people through contextual variables were challenged under the local cultures which view the equality and casual direct addressing as politeness. Participants were also found to show salient efforts to accommodate the English ATs in multifaceted ways. These efforts shed light to the teaching of English ATs in classroom. Implications to teaching English ATs in classroom in Indonesia are also discussed.

Abstract

This study aimed to examine perceptions and actions of educational policy makers regarding parental engagement in children’s education within a district in West Sulawesi Province, Indonesia. The study employed a qualitative study using a phenomenological approach. Data were collected from five participants through a semi-structured interview, involving the head of the district, the education department head, a sub-district head, a village head, and a school principal. The collected data were analyzed by applying Moustakas’s (1994) analytical methods consisting of three steps namely bracketing, creating clusters of meaning, and textural description. The results showed that the policy makers within the district had an appropriate perception about the increment of parental involvement in education, not only for students but also for schools, parents, and local governments. However, positive perceptions of educational policy makers within the district were not consistent with their actions, proved by no particular policy intending for parental involvement.

Abstract

The English language textbook for the twelfth grade is relatively a new edition.Thus, with the importance of the textbook in language learning, this study aimed at investigating the involvement degree for the 12th grade English language textbook in Jordan through analyzing the presentation of educational contents and activities. To achieve this purpose, Rummy’s (1968) method was used to collect the data. The sample of the study was 15% of the book pages to examine the involvement of the educational content. The sample also consisted of all the activities with total (136) activities. The findings of the study showed that the decrease of students' involvement in educational content in the English language textbook for 12th grade and were not in the satisfactory range adopted by Rummy’s (1968) method, reaching the value to (0.18). The study also revealed that the involvement level of the activities was excellent with a coefficient (1.41). Based on these results, some implications are presented such as revising the content to focus on higher thinking skills, not fact or conclusions only.

Abstract

Indonesian government is currently through a tough moment where corruption has been massive. One of the long-term solutions of this practice is the implementation of character education from early ages. The purpose of this research was to find out the importance of character education in the fight against corruption for primary school students. The study was part of a research and development study aiming to design a model for integrating character education in integrated thematic learning in primary schools. We used semi-structure interviews to get data from eight participants who were Indonesian teachers of primary schools about the issue. This case study was analyzed through a thematic analysis. The findings show that character education is important for tackling corruption behaviors from early ages, shaping students’ mind towards the danger of corruption, producing excellent students with a good moral and behavior, and influencing teachers’ perception towards corruption. Recommendations are offered for Indonesian education betterment.

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to look at a description of Indonesian EFL students’ vocabulary knowledge. The focus was on their lexical diversity (how many different words students used) and lexical sophistication (how many advance words students used) in the English production, which is learnt by them as a foreign language. Their vocabulary knowledge was assessed using the D_tools and P_Lex software for the analysis. These statistical programs describe students’ detail computation results in both number and graph. Ten participants’ word production through a story-telling test was recorded and analyzed to look at their D and Lambda value. Based on the results gathered, it can be concluded that as foreign language learners, lower level of proficiency participants could produce more lexically rich texts than higher level participants and vice versa.
