ACKNOWLEDGEMENT Alhamdulillah, finally I can finish the TS3108 Task 2 (reflection) exactly in a time given. I admit that it was not easy for me to work on it all alone. So, I was helped by so many people around me. Firstly, I would like to thanks my lecturer, Madam Yusnee, for helping me to explain all the things about the coursework. I would not be able to finish this coursework if she did not explain everything to me and the whole class. Secondly, thank you to all my classmates which had give me such a helping hand to share any information and the things that I need in order to finish this coursework. So, as the task had done, I really appreciate every single things everyone had helped me throughout the time. Only Allah can give it to you in return. Thank you so much.

NURUL HIDAYAH BINTI NUMAN S10E-1006-0409 920601-12-6912 SELF REFLECTION ON SIMULATED TEACHING (TSL3108) For TSL3108, on of the sub tasks for our assignment is to carry out a simulated teaching in about 20 minutes for the teaching activity. Aswina, Nanthini and I are working in one group and we had chosen to teach demonstrative pronouns for our simulated teaching. After we had done our simulated teaching, we received some comments from our friends and also our lecturer. As for the strength, the familiar tune of Are You Sleeping song turned into the song on demonstrative pronouns is a good idea. Unfortunately, it has no music as we decided that we will sing it on our own to guide the pupils to sing along. Therefore, our lecturer recommended us to integrate the use of ICT maybe by adding the music of the song using some of the ICT media for example audio from the laptop. From this simulated teaching, I learned quite a lot about how to teach grammar. I learned that the choice of material we are using can help us in making our lesson attractive as we all know that grammar can be a boring subject for the pupils. Its also important to choose the suitable activity so the pupils can learn the grammar content better. We had chosen the deductive approach in our simulated teaching as we think this approach can help the pupils to understand better when the teacher explain the grammar rules first. As said by Ellis (2006), grammar teaching can be conducted simply by exposing learners to input contrived to provide multiple exemplers of the target structure. Taking into accunt some issues on grammar teaching, it migh be a challenge for teachers to make the pupils understand the grammar content. We can also relate the issue of lacking in resources about the comment on us not using music for the song. Some schools they have all these plugs in the classroom but most of the time, these resources are not working. So I would say we should also prepare for that possibility. No matter what, this activity of simulated teaching had taught me a lot about what I can do when it comes to teaching grammar. (358 words)
