Ok,mulai... Yang paling penting adalah lighting. Disini saya pake DIY lighting versi kere. Pake jeriken atau jerigen, sama aja. Menurut KBBI jeriken,tapi jerigen juga OK, yg penting tau maksudnya and kalo dah liat gambarnya pasti ngerti. Plastik putih susu jeriken bikin cahaya lampu jadi soft,maka cahaya akan jatuh lembut di objek. Alasan lain adalah softboc visatec harganya selangit. Hehe
Bahan Jeriken, lampu philips 15w, kabel, colokan listrik.
Berikut cara buatnya
Keuntungan pakai jeriken kita bisa posisikan berdiri atau letakkan di atas mini box studio kita untuk motret mainan kesayangan gampang diaturlah pokoknya.

Writing is a daily-practiced-skill and it is quiet simple to do. One of the tecniques is using mind mapping as a guidance in writing. In this case I write recount text. Recount is a kind of text to tell past event or experience. Some features are used in the recount text, such as the use of past tense, first and third person, connectives, and using the exact time setting. The following picture will describe the steps in writing recount.
Group discussion is a common activity in classroom. In group students able to share their learning experience to other. Solving problems in group also a good method for them, it makes them act independently and encourage them to find the solution by themselves.
Today, I ask my students to work in group in teaching their friends. I divided a class of 24 into 4 groups. Each group talk about one of language features. The following are the materials ;
Simple Present and Continuous
Adverbs of Frequency
The Simple Past Forms of Be
The Simple Past Forms of Regular Verbs and Irregular Verbs
In group of 6, they took part in explaining theories, sentence structure, and examples. The best part from their presentation is finding new example and explanation. Their friends critical questions also make the class alive. The activity shows the real teaching learning activity.
This is actually my partner idea, but he asked me to do this as a research in my English class. Yes, this is also become my next research task. Every year our teachers have to do at least one class research in order to improve their skill in teaching. Our foundation strict regulations push us to do so. Last year I dealt with reading , this year I choose writing as a skill to be researched.
My objects are my students, they are in the 8th grade. It means their age is around 14. Their age indicates their characteristic ; curious, creative, wild, and often misbehave. Related to the writing skill, they are lack of experience because they have few writing tasks when they were in elementary. Vocabulary and grammar are also my other obstacles, but I hope with this kind of frameworks in writing they can do better. Well, that is also my goal: to make them write at least a paragraph rich of information in it.
Basically, the 4 steps are the simple steps that we often miss in writing. These simple steps are brainstorming, grouping, making sentences, and writing paragraph. The details of each step is described as follow;
Brainstorming This is a step that everyone should used in every field. In this case brainstorming is an activity to write everything what crossed in our mind based on the certain context. We can start with a question; what do you have in mind if you hear the word 'tutorial', for instance. It will come to another words related to 'tutorial' such as make things, how to make, materials, etc.
Grouping In this step the writer is expected to make small groups based on the thing in the previous step. For example category for tutorial are making thing, how to use, how to operate, or how to run thing. From each category we can expand it into other group like materials, tools, tips and trick, etc.
Making sentences Based on the brainstorming and grouping steps, we can make sentences to elaborate our idea. Sentence describes our idea in a good writing language and make our idea clearer. By writing it we can also explain to the reader our messages.
Paragraphs Paragraph makes reader easily absorb our message since in the paragraph ideas are delivered in a good order. Generally, a text consist of several paragraphs such as introduction, main issues (problem, steps, conflict, etc), and conclusion (problem solving, opinion, or comment).
These frameworks of writing is essential to put all our ideas in a good place. Good writing is when we deliver words in a good sequence, while making good sequence needed preparation and practice.
Listening is one of crucial aspects in learning English. This skill requires good hearing sense and understanding in the same time. Basic rule of this skill is be very focus on the practices and do not make a single sound or unnecessary action in the middle of listening the recording. There are many ways to practice this skill, listening to music is one of my favorite activity. In class I also add this kind of way of practice, by listening to music I expect relaxing situation and more fun in my teaching.
Photography and band are my responsibility this year. I guide and teach those two extracurricular activities. For photography, I have a target which is very hard to achieve, National achievement. Last year one of my students got top 10 rank of National Photography Competition of Education Ministry. She was on the 4th place. Next year we have to reach top 3 for the national, and I hope there'll be chance for international photo competition.
Band activity is also one of my favorite extracurricular. This year my target is all group will perform on Tartig Cup 7 at school and perform in another band competition in Jakarta.
I will share some training materials regarding those two extracurricular.
The new year of lesson is already started. This year I teach 8th and 9th graders. It's a challenge to teach 9th because I have my own target for National exam. Average in amount of 8,5 or more is my target. A little bit higher than last year's achievement (8,3). In grade 8, I have no target, all students pass their score (70) and they all go to the next grade is enough for me.
Tarakanita 3 photography club had a monthly photo project on last February. Modeling photography was the theme for their project. This project was to fulfill their assignment in photography extracurricular of Tarakanita 3 Jakarta Junior High.
We chose the theme because we thought it will quite challenging and it was. Students dealt with some photography techniques like lighting, composition, depth of field, angle and communication with the model. Simple and casual was the concept idea for models,which was directly related to the costume that the model wore. T-shirt, dress, tank top, skirt, sneakers or heels are easy wardrobes that every girl at school has. Models were photographer's friends or relatives. Photographer arranged all the needs; location, camera and its additional tools, and models' costume. They also had a task to direct the model and communication is the key in this case.
The activity was aimed to improve students' skill in photography. One of the students said "there were so many things we have learnt not only the photography technique but also the interaction between photographer and the model". He also said it was a very fun activity.
