Mathematics Capita Selecta is one of the elective courses of mathematics education program that aims to help students able to make a study related to the latest mathematics topic. The purpose of this research is to describe the students’ responsibility on the Mathematics Capita Selecta Course with Reciprocal Teaching Strategy based on Ignatian Pedagogy. Implementation of this learning model includes the process of extracting context, experience, reflection, evaluation and action in hope of optimizing the competence, compassion and conscience of students. The competence focus helps students to solve the assignment in the Mathematics Capita Selecta Course well. Whereas in terms of conscience, the design is expected to help students hone responsible attitude. And in terms of compassion, the design is expected to appreciate diversity. Data analysis method used is descriptive qualitative-quantitative. The subjects of this study are students who take the Mathematics Capita Selecta Course in the second semester of 2016-2017. In this course, lecturer use Reciprocal Teaching Strategy, where students in groups are given the task of discussing a mathematics article, presenting in class, and producing new articles. The results of this study is the reciprocal teaching strategy helps students to complete their responsibilities, so that as many as 6 groups can present their articles at the National Conference at Muhammadiyah University Purworejo. This strategy requires students to understand the selected articles and discuss in the classroom. In the aspect of responsibility attitude including very high category. On the student reflection note, almost all students claimed to always strive to serve and be trustworthy when given responsibility. When you have a responsibility, there is no need to force things to remain trustworthy. Students are increasingly willing and able to complete their responsibilities both personally and in groups shown by indicators working together, completing tasks and communicating very high. DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2018.020209

Abstract

This paper investigated the problems of understanding basic or fundamental tenses in English grammar (the present tense, present continuous tense, present future tense, and present future continuous) that are faced by the first semester students of the English Language Education Study Program of Sanata Dharma University, Yogyakarta. Basic tenses in English grammar play a decisive role in various aspects related to learning English as the target language. Accordingly, it is essential to conduct a study on the issues of basic tenses in order to assist students to overcome their grammatical problems. Data were collected through questionnaires that were emailed to the participants. Results showed that the students had difficulties in producing or analyzing the present continuous tense, the present perfect tense and the present perfect continuous tense. The first semester students also faced difficulty in remembering the formula of each tense, admitting that they did not review the basic tenses regularly and the students found it difficult to comprehend their grammar lessons well in the classroom. DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2018.020206

Abstract

This study is aimed at developing the application of responsibility through the implementation of Numbered Head Together model in the social science learning process. The type of this research was descriptive analysis using qualitative approach. The subjects of the study were the third-grade students and teachers of social science learning in Sukoharjo Sub-district. Data collection techniques in this study were documentation studies, observation, and interviews. The findings of the research were analyzed using interactive analysis of Miles and Huberman model and presented through descriptive narrative text. The results of the research show that: 1) the learning result of the third-grade students in social science subject is not maximal yet, 2) the students are not aware of the social science learning objectives for their future, 3) the teachers remain applying the conventional model, 4) the teacher has not implemented the social science learning process involving the students responsibility. The characteristics of Numbered Head Together learning model are suitable to be applied in learning social science because it makes the students serious in learning, develop thinking skills, and improve social relationships among students that can be used as a means to develop the studenta’ responsibilities in the social studies learning process. DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2018.020202

Abstract

In Indonesia, graph theory is not part of the Mathematics education curriculum at primary or secondary school Curriculum. Most students learn graph theory in university, especially those who takes major in Mathematics or Computer Science. This paper is a theoretical study in Mathematics Education which proposes some Mathematics classroom activities based on some concepts in graph theory to develop critical thinking for high school students as well as grade school. Some concepts in graph theory, such as vertex coloring and domination set can be used in primary and secondary schools to develop critical thinking of the students. These activities should be fun for the students since the teacher may use it as a game in the classroom. DOI : https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2018.020207

Abstract

Being freshmen is a challenge for college students. They must encounter a lot of demands in their college especially their social skills. Prior research showed that students of Universitas Indonesia reported their social-psychological relations problem in their social environment. Freshmen must have adequate social skills in order to encounter demands in social relation. This study aimed to increase social skills for Universitas Indonesia’s freshmen through the application of Social Skill Training (SST). A pre-test, post-test design and one month follow up test were administered. Subjects of this study were seven Universitas Indonesia’s students (freshmen) with age range from 17 – 18 years old, attended three sessions with two hours per session. Participants reported that their social skills increased, indicated by improvement in Social Skills Inventory (SSI), and also by qualitative evaluation. Group dynamics and experiential learning allowed them to learn from the experiences of other participants. Therefore, the application of Social Skills Training effectively increased the social skills for Universitas Indonesia’s freshmen. Further research is needed to examine this intervention using a larger sample, control groups and in-depth interview for qualitative evaluation. DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2018.020204

Abstract

Generally, learning poetry has some functions which deal with oral language development, student learning style expansion, world engagement with its content, and cultural awareness exploration. The fact is that not only does Indonesia government try to put aside learning literature from all language study programs, but also some practitioners argue that there is no link between learning poetry and developing students’ teaching skill in some teachers training departments. This article argues that learning poetry can be a medium to develop students’ teaching skill in sharing the knowledge independently and creatively. Some practices that have been conducted in two poetry classes of English Language Education Program, Sanata Dharma University in 2017 are being discussed in relation to improve students’ teaching skill as  preliminary activities before having a micro teaching class. Additional data about students’ response toward the practices are also shown. It was found that 82% students agreed that those practices developed students’ teaching skill in sharing the knowledge that they got. DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2018.020203

Abstract

This research analyzes the engagement of English teachers who participated in the preparation of Teaching Profession Certification Program (TPCP/PLPG) in Sanata Dharma University. There were 70 English teachers from many schools in the Province of Central Java who participated in the online learning session before they follow the workshop session. The result of this analysis indicated that the level of active participation of the participants in the online learning session is very low. Although the mean score of the frequency of access ( = 42.39) is above the expected frequency of access (24), the mean score of frequency of message ( = 9.32) is far below the expected frequency of message (72).  In addition, there are no significant differences between the engagement of male and female participants in both the frequency of access and the frequency of messages. Furthermore, the frequency of access indicates a weak correlation with the scores of final examination (r = 0.21, p < .05), but the correlation between the frequency of access and the final examination scores does not significantly exist (r = 0.02, p > .05). It is recommended that future attempts to carry out the online activities in professional development programs for English teachers should be focused on encouraging instructors and participants to be more engaged in the online learning environment. DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2018.020201

Abstract

Fractions are well known to be difficult to learn, but it is should not be surprising considering the complexity of the concepts involved. In working with fractions, children learn new rules that often conflict with well-established ideas about whole numbers. Many studies have revealed that fractions division has been thought to be the most complex of the mathematical operations in elementary mathematics. However, fractions and the operations have been recognized as an important foundation for the understanding of our number system. Therefore teachers should provide meaningful learning experiences that relate to division of fractions. This present study aimed to analyze secondary school students’ construction of knowledge in fractions division. This descriptive study was conducted with 44 seventh grade students in Pangudi Luhur Junior High School in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. During a one-week unit of lesson on division of fractions, students were given a task-based activity specifically designed to promote students’ understanding. Data sources in this study included observation of learning process and a pre and posttest of students’ conceptual knowledge and procedural computation skills. The result showed a significant improvement in students’ conceptual knowledge and procedural knowledge. DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2018.020205
