1.3 Teaching System

Learning-teaching system
Labschool Unsyiah implements a learning and teaching system that is slightly different from other high schools in Aceh. One of them is the ‘moving class’ system. Students transfer to another class each time their class is finished. This creates different surroundings everyday and prevents students from becoming bored with a static atmosphere in school.

SMA Lab School Unsyiah implements 2006 competency-based curriculum (KBK).

Another thing that I want to add, based on my observation on their teaching system is the positive effect of technological inclusion to their students. Teachers in SMA Labschool are great user of technology in terms of teaching, they can maintain the students’ attention even though in long classes. Aside from they are using high quality projectors and other tools in teaching, they are really good in choosing the appropriate materials such as videos and audios that will fit their students’ interests and at the same time related with the lessons.

School hours
Classes are conducted from Monday to Friday 7.45 AM to 4 pm. On Saturday, students attend extracurricular activities.



1.4 Materials and Other Learning Sources

Plenty of books for students to use
CDs for film viewing in literature classes

SMA Labschool has their own library inside the campus wherein students can find materials that can support their learning such as books, magazines, charts, compact disks(CDs) and etc. and at the same time they can feel comfort and relax, because of very conducive environment inside the library.

They also have an ICT or computer room wherein students are being taught on how to use different computer software. They do also use this room when the students are taking national exams online.

Another good thing that I really liked in this school is the accessible internet connection around the campus.

Here are the facilities in SMA Labschool that help the students learn in an easier and enjoyable way:

Laboratories for Physics, Chemistry and Biology,Computer Lab with 24 Linux computers and one server to perform e-learning with Moodle,
Library. On 28 January 2010, United States Ambassador for Indonesia, Cameron R. Hume visited SMA Labschool to donate USD 100,000 to further develop the library.[2]
Arts Lab equipped with musical instruments, including a drum kit, an electronic keyboard, electric guitars, and a bass guitar. Such instruments are rare and almost cannot be found in public schools in Aceh.
An internet wi-fi zone which can be accessed by students from 8 am to 4 pm daily.



1.5 Measurement and Evaluation System

Just like other institutions, SMA Labschool do use of diagnostic, summative, and formative test in measuring and evaluating their students’ learning. Based on my observation the teachers do diagnostic testing every time before any lesson to measure their students strength and weaknesses on a particular topic so that they will find out where the lesson should focus, and the appropriate strategies to use on their teaching proper. On the other hand they do use summative test in form of quizzes, recitations, and etc. in order to find out the learning progress of their students. Finally, they do administer formative test in the form of final examinations to measure and evaluate their student’s learning at the end of every semester.

1.7 Teaching Plan

My cooperating teacher(the one in front) and my supervisor when I was asking for a copy of their lesson plans.

Each of the teachers in SMA Labschool makes their own lesson plan for each of their lessons. They often use semi-detailed in writing their lesson plans but sometimes they still write detailed lesson plans. Another thing that I have noticed is that their lesson plans even in English subjects are still written in Bahasa Indonesia.

Here is a sample of my cooperating teacher’s lesson plan for English subject but written in Bahasa Indonesia.
