SPM English 1119 Focus on Directed Writing – Seminar Handouts

Assalamualaikum and hello 😀 It’s now March and SPM is approaching fast. Before long, candidates are going to find themselves busy with extra classes, projects, seminars, workshops and frantic revision hours. I can’t remember how it was for me back in 2004 but I definitely remember crying tears of stress along the way LOL. I hope the younger generations have it better. Information is abundance today, unlike then. Broadband was a luxury. Narrowband was all we had until much, much later.

This morning, I was given the opportunity to conduct a two-hour long seminar at Damaisari Tawang, Bachok for SPM candidates from  SMK Dato’ Mahmud Paduka Raja (2). Thumbs up to the organising committee for choosing such a conducive venue! The seminar hall was massive! Since I prefer workshops where students are more actively involved, I struggled internally at first with what to say. I mean, I have so much to say 😆 Adjustments had to be made since I decided to focus on writing only. Feel free to click on the links below to download some handouts.

I went into continuous writing for a bit but we didn’t spend too long due to time restraint. We did discuss the figurative language/ narrative styles a bit. Here’s what we covered:

Pendekatan Mudah “ABCD” Dalam Penulisan Objektif & Kriteria Kejayaan

Ada yang minta saya kongsi versi BM. Lebih kurang macam ni yang saya buat ya.

A – Audience (Siapa klien/ target kita?)

Pada akhir PdPc, murid 5EKO dapat:

** perincikan murid yang mana, jangan tulis secara umum.

B – Behaviour

Apa yang kita mahu pelajar buat. Contohnya:

Senaraikan 5 faktor yang _____ …

C – Condition

Pelajar perlu buat B tadi dalam bentuk apa?

Contoh:

… di dalam peta buih berganda…

D – Degree

Tahap yang kita ingin ukur murid kelas tersebut dalam menyiapkan C tadi.

Contoh:

…. dengan lengkap.

Objektif penuh:

Pada akhir PdPc, murid 5EKO dapat:

Senaraikan 5 faktor yang _____  di dalam peta buih berganda dengan lengkap

KRITERIA KEJAYAAN

Perlu dinyatakan berapa ramai murid yang dijangka boleh menyiapkan tugasan dengan sempurna. Selebihnya mungkin di tahap sederhana atau lemah. Di sini boleh kita kesan golongan yang perlu diberi latihan pemulihan (lemah), pengukuhan (sederhana) dan pengayaan (cemerlang).

Faktor “C” di bahagian objektif tadi lah yang akan ditulis di ruang Kriteria Kejayaan. Contohnya:

20 daripada 28 murid kelas 5EKO dapat:

  1. Membina peta buih berganda tentang ___
  2. Menulis surat kepada pengarang

Semoga Bermanfaat.

Writing Lesson Objectives & Success Criteria

If you’re having a hard time writing learning objectives for a three-part lesson, look up and read about these three approaches:

1. Robert Mager’s Performance-Based Learning Objectives
2.The ABCD Model for Writing Objectives
3. Gronlund’s General and Specific Cognitive Objectives

This is how I do it:
A – Audience (Be specific about the audience)

At the end of the lesson, students of 5EKO will be able to:

B – Behaviour (What do you want them to do?)

List down 5 factors that influence one’s decision…

C – Conditions (in what form must the student complete the action in B )

… in a bubble map…

D – Degree (how far/ to which extent are they expected to perform?)

… with the correct spelling.

Complete example:
At the end of the lesson, students of 5EKO (A) will be able to:
List down 5 factors that influence one’s decision (B) in a bubble map (C) with the correct spelling (D).

WHAT ABOUT THE SUCCESS CRITERIA?

Based on the above example, C is what you’d like the students to produce. So, it goes like this:

12 out of 12 students are able to successfully:
Create a bubble map on what influences one’s decision.

Best regards,
Adlina.

Daily Lesson Plan Template in Bahasa Melayu

Assalamualaikum dan selamat sejahtera,

Maaf dah lama saya tak tulis blog dalam BM (jangan kecam, saya guru BI sepenuh masa).  Di sini saya nak kongsi templat RPH yang saya pada asalnya sediakan untuk sekolah saya. Sekolah kami terlibat dengan program Transformasi Sekolah (TS25). Kami diperkenalkan dengan Three-Part Lesson oleh Dr. Amin (IPG Kampus Kota Bharu). Pada asalnya juga, three-part lesson digunakan di negara luar secara meluas untuk mengajar subjek matematik berlandaskan pendekatan inkuiri.

Berbekalkan tunjuk ajar Dr. Amin, saya sediakan satu templat yang alhamdulillah dipersetujui barisan pentadbir dan tenaga kerja TS25 sekolah. Kalau Tuan/ Puan Nazir tanya “awak pakai template apa ni?” boleh lah jawab “Ooo saya gunapakai templat terbitan three-part lesson.” Hehe 😀

Psst. Walaupun template ni saya bina guna Macbook, template versi interaktif ni lebih sesuai dengan komputer Windows (Excel 2010 dan ke atas). Anda boleh terus export dan save lesson plan sebagai fail PDF tanpa perlu install PDF printer atau convert kepada PDF menggunakan aplikasi lain. Mudah bukan? Tak perlu perbanyakkan fail excel untuk hari-hari berbeza. Export dan save je.

Pastikan ribbon aplikasi Excel anda ada tab Developer. Anda perlu “enable all macros” (Macro Security). Jika diminta benarkan macros, klik setuju ye.

DOWNLOAD VERSI INTERAKTIF
RPH Template - Bahasa Melayu (783 downloads)

Ada juga versi PDF yang boleh anda cetak untuk diperbanyakkan. Kalau anda lebih suka menulis (macam saya), inilah langkah terbaik dan jimat masa. Cetak, perbanyak, tulis je guna tangan macam planner biasa.

DOWNLOAD VERSI PDF (UNTUK CETAKAN)

Semoga bermanfaat. Cuma saya mohon untuk tidak dimuat naik fail saya ke tempat lain sahaja. Boleh share alamat blog saya atau copy URL ke page ni (copy from address bar), terima kasih kerana memahami 😀

Daily Lesson Plan Template for Secondary School English Teachers

Assalamualaikum and good day, it’s been a while since I last posted anything. Life’s been super busy as usual. I’m back to share my version of the Daily Lesson Plan Template for Secondary School English Teachers (SMK). I made both the KSSM and KBSM versions. Feel free to use them if you think they are suitable for you.

Many states have opted to forgo the traditional book and switch to a more portable medium, mine included. The lesson plan I made is largely based on the three-part-lesson planner. Originally, a three-part lesson is an “inquiry-based learning method used to teach mathematics” overseas. Under Dr. Amin’s guidance (IPGKKB), I started to draft a new lesson plan template that would better reflect PdPcA21 activities for my school. However, to create a one-size-fits-all template is almost impossible because we have not yet fully transitioned to KSSM. So, I decided to come up with different versions instead.

Pssst… When you open the file, do read the little notes on the right for extra info 😛

A) EDITABLE INTERACTIVE DAILY LESSON PLAN TEMPLATE (MICROSOFT EXCEL)
Special Features:
Drop-down lists for standards, specifications, etc, notes, editable basic Data (time, class name, ..) and a one-click Export to PDF function!
Requirement: Excel 2010 and newer on Windows -or- Excel for Mac 2011 and newer

  1. Before opening this file, make sure you have the DEVELOPER TAB on the ribbon (how to).
  2. Click Enable Editing or Enable Content when you open the file.
  3. Go to Developer tab and click Macro Security. Choose “Enable all macros”, save the settings and close the dialogue box.
  4. Close the file and reopen it. You can start editing away, yay! Choose the sheet you want to edit.
  5. The default filename for the export to pdf function is “WorksheetName_DayMonthYear_HourMinute.pdf”

DOWNLOAD INTERACTIVE VERSION (New Version 1.2!):
Editable Interactive Daily Lesson Plan Template for Secondary School English Teachers (3976 downloads)

CHANGELOG:
V1.1 – Uploaded 30 December 2017
V1.2 – Uploaded 02 January 2018, edited the Data sheet and rearranged a few columns.

Sidenote: I created this document on a Mac but this template is best used on a Windows machine. On a Mac, you won’t be able to use the “Export to PDF  & Save” option. Regardless, you can still Save as Pdf  normally from the Print Dialogue (command+P).

B) PRINTABLE PHYSICAL PLANNER VERSION (PDF FILE)
Requirement: Pdf viewer (e.g Adobe Acrobat, Foxit Reader, etc)

For those who wish to stick to the traditional ways, you may want to just download and print as many physical copies of the template as you like.

COLORURED EDITION

MONOCHROME EDITION

CHANGELOG:
V1.1 – Uploaded 30 December 2017
V1.2 – Edited a typo. Thanks for pointing it out!

That’s all from me for now. Inshaa Allah I will upload the 2018 version of my printable English student planner tomorrow along with some other things. See you soon!
