This leads to a harmonious work atmosphere and wise decision making.</p> 2022-03-21T13:24:53+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Yayuk Hidayah (Author) The Effect of Multiple Sequential Activities Stimulation Techniques to Early Childhood Language Acquisition During Social Restriction of COVID-19 Policy in Indonesia 2022-06-26T03:18:09+00:00 Siti Salamah Fathiaty Murtadho Yumna Rasyid <p>Early childhood is a crucial period to acquire language. The role of mothers in providing stimulus to children in language acquisition is very important. This study aims to describe how the effect of multiple sequential activities stimulation techniques given by a mother to her 21 months old child on language acquisition during social restriction policy caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Stimulus is given to a child by using The Multiple Sequential Activities Stimulation Techniques. Subjects and objects in this study are sounds, word forms, and sentences of 20 months old child, who initially is only able to pronounce a few vowels and consonants. The case study method is used in this research. The data were collected using participatory observation methods. Then, the data were analyzed using the grammatical match method. The results showed that the stimulation of techniques provided by the mother, who has an optimal contribution to the language development of early childhood. The stimulation techniques given by the mother showed that a child can pronounce all vowels clearly and only a few consonants that cannot be pronounced (f, g, k, r, q, z, v). Morphologically, a child can pronounce nouns, verbs, adjectives, and numerals. Syntactically, a child can pronounce telegraphic sentences.</p> 2022-04-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Siti Salamah, Fathiaty Murtadho, Yumna Rasyid (Author) The Influence of Work environment and Fulfillment of Occupational Needs on The Performance of Geography Teachers at Public Senior High School in Lumajang Regency 2022-06-26T03:18:06+00:00 Mohamad Na'im Vionita Firdausy <p>The objectives of this study are to analyze the effect of the work environment on the performance of Geography teachers at the state senior high schools in Lumajang Regency, investigate the effect of the fulfillment of occupational needs on the performance of Geography teachers, and analyze the influence of the work environment and the fulfillment of occupational needs on the performance of Geography Teachers. This research deployed quantitative research, coupled with correlational analysis to examine the cause-effect relationship between the dependent and independent variables. Research results point out that the teacher's work environment affects their performance by 30.25%. The fulfillment of occupational needs poses an effect on teachers’ performance by 26.41%. This means that greater fulfillment of occupational needs results in increased teacher performance. Finally, the work environment and the fulfillment of occupational needs concurrently pose a positive effect on the teacher’s performance. The coefficient of simultaneous determination (R<sup>2</sup>) is 46.9%.</p> 2022-05-25T23:07:58+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Mohamad Naim (Author) Language Learning in Modular Set-Up: Challenges and Coping Mechanisms of Secondary Students 2022-06-26T03:17:59+00:00 Wilmarie S. Francisco Ericson O. Alieto <p>The urgent need to respond to the Covid crisis has provided the impetus for the implementation of modular distance learning in the Philippines. Hence, this study is one of the very few studies which sought to investigate the modular distance learning in the country, particularly the challenges it brought to the English language learners.&nbsp; Also, this present research aimed to determine the coping mechanisms of students, relevant to the challenges raised. The participants of the study were senior high school students, two males andsixfemales, who were purposely selected to fit into the inclusion criteria. Descriptive qualitative research design was employed and individual in-depth interviews were conducted to gather the data.&nbsp; The responses were transcribed, translated, and analyzed through thematic analysis. With regards the challenges, these themes were created: absence of teacher’s instruction, struggles of self-learning, poor picture quality, limited contents of the module, insufficient allotted time, failure of teachers to respond to inquiries, unstable and limited access to internet, students lack of vocabulary and grammatical knowledge, and less opportunity for correction. The paper ends with the discussion on how the students addressed the challenges of modular distance learning which was also subdivided into themes.&nbsp;</p> 2022-06-22T15:25:02+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Wilmarie Francisco (Author) Instructional Material Development for Modular Learning: Voices from Inexperienced English Language Teachers 2022-06-26T03:18:01+00:00 Honey Thane A. Alban Ericson O. Alieto <p>The spread of the Coronavirus pandemic had affected every sector in our community including the sector of education. Educational institutions all over the world were forced to temporarily close. The COVID-19 pandemic is continuously arising yet learners should continue to learn. Thus, the Department of Education together with other educational institutions in the Philippines decided to devise a learning continuity plan. The authorities and the stakeholders decided to utilize distance learning as an alternative to face-to-face classes. Specifically, public elementary and secondary schools used distance modular learning. The modules used in modular distance learning. Hence, this qualitative research study utilized the thematic analysis method to unveil the challenges and coping mechanisms of English language teachers in developing the modules. This study primarily aimed to present the challenges encountered by inexperienced English language teachers in developing the materials for the modular learning of English. Moreover, the coping mechanisms of the English language teachers against the challenges they faced while developing the modules are discussed herein.</p> 2022-06-22T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Honey Thane Alban, Ericson Alieto (Author)
