Abstract

Pragmatic competence constitutes a significant factor in determining the success of communication.  In real life interaction, a language learner is not only expected to use language and produce utterances which are understandable or grammatically correct, but is also expected to produce utterances which are socioculturally appropriate. However, for students who learn English as a Foreign Language (EFL), the pragmatic competence, which can actually be acquired naturally through social interaction, is quite difficult to acquire due to the limited, if not absent at all, use of English to reach a communication goal in an authentic social interaction/setting (not in a role-play classroom activity).  This paper aims to figure out some of those issues of teaching pragmatics in EFL classrooms in Indonesia and to explore the possible solutions based on the concept and approaches informed by the previous studies. The importance of the use of authentic materials, input and production activity, along with understandable feedback are highlighted as some of the ways to fill the lacking space in EFL learners’ pragmatic knowledge.erimental class and controlled class. The mean score of post-test (77.3) in experimental class was greater than the mean score of post-test (71.9) in controlled class and from t-test, the researcher found that the value of t-test (3.176) was greater than t-table (2.000) at the level of significances. It means that this is a significant difference between the result of the students’ pre-test and post-test. Therefore, H0 was rejected and H1was accepted. Based on the finding and discussion of the research, the researcher had drawn a conclusion that the use of Small Group Discussion Strategy in Improvingthe student’s reading comprehension at the Eleventh Grade Students of SMA Negeri 11 Bulukumba was effective.

Abstract

Kurikulum dan metodologi pembelajaran merupakan konsep inti dalam sistem pembelajaran.  Para  ahli  sepakat  bahwa  kurikulum  merupakan  elemen  yang  lebih  luas daripada metodologi pembelajaran. Namun, keduanya saling berkaitan. Sebenarnya, ada beragam metodologi dalam pembelajaran bahasa Inggris tetapi sekarang ini merupakan post- method era dimana tidak ada metodologi yang spesifik yang diklaim sebagai metodologi yang terbaik untuk diimplementasikan. Dalam konteks pembelajaran di Indonesia, kurikulum didesain secara umum oleh pemerintah. Faktanya, faktor yang mempengaruhi pembelajaran yang sangat beragam memerlukan metodologi yang beragam pula untuk diterapkan di dalam kelas. Hal tersebut menunjukkan pentingnya pemerintah memberikan perhatian pada konsep post-method era sehingga desain pembelajaran yang dikembangkan oleh pemerintah dapat lebih fleksibel untuk digunakan dalam konteks yang beragam di Indonesia. Sejalan dengan paparan  tersebut,  guru  sebagai  pengembang  kurikulum,  pelaksana  kurikulum,  fasilitator dalam pembelajaran, serta peneliti kurikulum, sebaiknya memahami post-method era dalam konteks pendidikan di Indonesia sehingga mereka dapat mengembangkan dan menerapkan kurikulum, memfasilitasi pembelajaran, melakukan penelitian yang sesuai dengan konteks pendidikan di Indonesia untuk meningkatkan mutu pembelajaran. Oleh karena itu, artikel ini bertujuan  untuk  mengeksplor  beberapa  isu  terkait  topik  utama  yang  didiskusikan  dalam artikel ini yang meliputi kurikulum, metodologi, hubungan antara kurikulum dan metodologi, pembelajaran  bahasa  Inggris,  post-method  era,  serta  post-method  era  dalam  konteks Indonesia.Kata kunci: post-method era, pembelajaran bahasa Inggris, konteks Indonesia

Abstract

Considering the results of researchers’ observation at some Teaching English as A Foreign Language (TEFL) classes, which noted that there were at least two problems, namely the lack of materials to accommodate the students’ need of learning and unavailability of TEFL media to support the learning process, the development of materials for TEFL class are urgently needed. Besides, the high demand for technology integration into language learning to face digital environment motivates education practitioners to develop materials with technology application. WebQuests can be one of meeting points for this intersection. A WebQuests is an online media which allows students to collect and construct information about a subject using a web. By using WebQuests, the students will have an opportunity to actively contribute constructing their own knowledge during the teaching and learning process. Therefore, this study aims at giving rational and theoretical background in developing a web-based material with a constructivist approach, named constructivist-WebQuests.Keywords:material development, constructivist-WebQuests, online materials, TEFL
