Abstract

Writing is considered to be a sequence of complicated process in which the students need to organize their ideas and develop them into a systematic order. Due to its complexity process, students often find problems in writing, such as idea organization, sentence arrangements, punctuation, and capitalization. Consequently, this study examined the essay writing class students of the undergraduate program to find out whether or not self-reflection in portfolio gives contribution in improving their writing skills. A questionnaire, observational field notes, and document of students’ self-reflections were used to collect data about the students’ awareness about self-refection, portfolio and writing based on their perspectives. The findings reveal that the self-reflection in portfolio indeed has given contribution toward students’ writing through a set of guided questions so that the students become more aware about their strengths and weaknesses in every draft of their writing. Knowing those things will eventually help students to produce better writing on their own that lead them to be autonomous learners.

Abstract

This study investigated English as a Foreign Language teachers’ beliefs toward grammar teaching in the classroom. This research paper aimed to explore EFL teachers’ belief about grammar teaching and the factors influencing teachers in shaping their beliefs on grammar teaching. A qualitative study using a semi-structured interview with eight English as foreign language teachers of secondary schools in East Jakarta has been conducted. The result revealed that most teachers believed that grammar was essential. Explicit grammar teaching was also believed to be more effective to be implemented in teaching grammar, yet teachers still used both explicit and implicit instructions. Nonetheless, some teachers believed that implicit instruction that was suggested in the 2013 Curriculum was less effective due to the limited time of English learning in classroom practice. The factors shaping the teachers’ beliefs involved the student factor and the teacher factors which included teachers’ prior education and personal experiences. This research was expected to improve the teaching of grammar practices and suggest an effective approach to be implemented in teaching grammar in EFL context for teachers in classroom.
