Abstract

As one of the most widely used international primary curricula in the world, the Primary Years Program (PYP) introduced by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) has significantly increased its number of world schools in the Asia Pacific region including Indonesia. With the increased number of IB World Schools in the country, there comes a need to prepare for teachers qualified for teaching using the PYP as their framework. Indonesian higher educational institutions are therefore required to not only prepare teachers qualified in their teaching profession but also those having an open mind towards international education in general. It is important, then, to have insights on what these pre-service teachers think about international primary education, especially about the PYP and its implementation in primary schools in Indonesia. These perspectives will make useful raw data on the characteristics of Indonesian primary pre-service teachers and their readiness to take their professional career in any international primary schools including the IB world schools.doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2017.010105

Abstract

Indonesia consists of many islands, cultures, ethnicities, and religions. This country will be strong if its people would like to live and work together peacefully. It can be done if they accept their differences and want to work together as one nation. The spirit should be taught since the elementary schools until universities. Thus, the curriculum, teachers, and teacher training institutes should be pluralistic and multicultural. Indonesian schools should provide and improve the pluralistic and multicultural spirit and environment, because there are still many obstacles in these matters.DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2017.010102

Abstract

The autonomy competence in the social personality of the adolescents became one of the development aspects which must be urgently acquired by adolescents. Failure to be autonomous in the social personality during the adolescence period would have bad impact in the subsequent ages. The aims of the research were (1) to describe the level of autonomy competence of social personality in one of private Junior High schools, (2) to identify the items of the Inventory of Adolescent Social Personality Autonomy Competence (IASPAC) in the low and very low categories as the base to propose the topics of social personality guidance in one of the private junior high schools in Yogyakarta. The research subjects were the 141 students in grades VII, VIII, and IX. The research instrument was Inventory of Adolescent Social Personality Autonomy Competence (IASPAC) numbering 39 items which were composed by the researcher on the ground of the autonomy competence standards in the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) model, at the reliability value of 0.935. The data analysis was descriptive analysis with the categorization of the average numbers. The research result showed that as a whole the autonomy competence in the social personality of the students in one of the private junior high-schools in Yogyakarta was categorized as ‘autonomous’, with the following details, 18 students (12.7%) were categorized as ‘very high’, 104 students (73.7%) were categorized as ‘high’, 19 students (13.48%) were categorized as ‘medium’, and none of the students were categorized as ‘low’ and ‘very low’. There were many differences in the average of the social personality autonomy competence among the grade VII, VIII, and IX students. The grade VII students’ level of social personality autonomy competence was higher than that of the grade VIII and IX students. The other finding was that there were 10 items of the IASPAC with the lowest scores. These items would be used as the basis to propose topics for classical guidance of the social personality. DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2017.010202

Abstract

This research explores students’ voices towards motivation in English writing. It particularly scrutinizes the factors influencing students’ motivation in the teaching and learning process of writing. The participants of this study were 20 non-English department students enrolled in English IV subject which was a general English course offered by Language Training Centre of Muhammadiyah University of Yogyakarta. The data were collected through a questionnaire with open-ended questions in which the participants were asked to write their opinion and reflection with regard to the issue. The results of this study revealed that there were six factors fostering learners’ motivation in EFL writing class. These factors were institutional demands, linguistic needs, enthusiastic and inspiring teachers, engaging activities and tasks, interesting topics, and positive learning atmosphere. The present study suggested that there should be a collaborative negotiation between the teacher and students to create an enjoyable learning atmosphere. This also necessitated teachers to examine learners’ needs, institutional expectations, as well as their characteristics and voices in EFL writing.doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2017.010104

Abstract

Ecological destruction is very real today. It is increasing day by day along with many causes. Deforestation and mining are two of them, which truly threaten not only humans but also the environment and biodiversity. To gain awareness and knowledge about ecological destruction and to achieve ecological conversion, action and research study is needed. Related to this concern everyone, including students, must be involved. The aim of this article is to offer a methodical study which is based on research study. Its study is also integrated toward Arbuscular Mycorrhiza Fungi (AMF) which is associated toward pioneer plant like Koro Hijau (Macrotyloma uniflorm) as a unique technology to fertilize bare land and ex-mining. This study can be applied toward senior high school students specifically grade X related to microbiology subject or grade XII related to the growth and development of plants subject. The approach of this study is best applied in practicum class after students have received basic understanding on its subject in theoretical class. AMF application toward pioneer plants to solve bare land and ex-lime mine problems is one of the research studies which is applicable toward education method in school level. Following its method, students are not only able to gain their theoretical and practical knowledge but also able to empower their passion and preference to love and care about environment and earth.DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2017.010203

Abstract

In interpreting, the biggest problem is the evaluation of students’ performance in consecutive interpreting and simultaneous interpreting. The large number of students in the class leads to the small amount of time distributed to evaluate students’ interpreting effectively. To overcome this problem, the Audacity audio-recording software is used to help students practice interpreting independently and to help the lecturer to conduct interpreting tests simultaneously. The classroom action research aims to find out how the teaching learning process is conducted and how the students use Audacity to improve their consecutive and simultaneous interpreting skills. This research was conducted to 25 seventh-semester students taking the Interpreting class. The research instruments were Reflection Sheet and Lecturer’s Field Notes. From the students’ reflection and Lecturer’s Notes, most students understood the phases of interpreting and some students were still confused to differentiate between consecutive and simultaneous interpreting. The skills that they developed during the course were concentrating, listening, taking notes, paraphrasing, and public speaking. The use of Audacity was able to help them practice consecutive and simultaneous interpreting skills. An in-depth research to find out students’ perception on the use of Audacity to improve their consecutive and simultaneous interpreting skills must be conducted.DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2017.010208

Abstract

There are some challenges in Interpreting; in this study, we focus more on the interpreting of pronouns from English as Source Language (SL) to Indonesian as Target Language (TL). The data was collected within simulations in classroom setting. The results showed many unnatural translation of pronoun ‘it’ and ‘this’. References of these pronouns are anaphoric and may take different linguistic units (clause, phrase, word). There were some strategies employed to achieve natural interpreting in TL. Some students repeated the reference(s); but they need to recover the whole references (might be very challenging when the reference(s) are complex). Other strategies are partial recovery, or lexical addition that complies with TL structure. There are some suggestions for an interpreter to deal with the challenges; one of them is to be familiar with the topic of what they are interpreting. In this way, they do not have to rely on short-term memory skills to decide which strategy to employ.DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2017.010101

Abstract

Teaching grammar is believed to be a way to help learners use English correctly and appropriately. However, as English teachers, we sometimes find that a word, phrase, or sentence is ambiguous as it has more than one meaning. The ambiguity, however, can be noticed if one really has a linguistic knowledge on how to analyze the phrase or sentence. There are two kinds of ambiguity (lexical and structural). This paper explores structural ambiguity. Structural ambiguity occurs when a phrase or sentence has more than one underlying structure. The phrase can be disambiguated by putting it in a sentence with some sort of formal indicator which helps the reader or hearer to recognize the sentence structure. Some of the signals include function words, inflections, affixes, stress, juncture, and punctuation. The rest of this paper discusses some types of structural ambiguity, how they differ, and some possible ways to resolve them in order to have understanding for the learners.DOI:https://doi.org/10.24071/ijiet.2017.010108
