A. Students’ Participation

1. Definition of Participation

According to Dusseldorf cited in Sudikin (2002:159) defines that participation is an activity or situation takes part in an activity to get the benefit optimally. It means that students learn best when they take an active part in the learning process.

Related to Wenger (1998:55) says that participation is both personal and social, it involves our whole person, including our bodies, minds, emotions and social relations. In the process of teaching and learning in a classroom the whole students‟ participation is very needed to build the

communication with the teacher. Without the students‟ participation, it will make the class become passive and the situation will be boring, therefore the involvement of students‟ participation including their bodies,


feeling shy or doubt to participate actively in the process of teaching and learning in a classroom.

According to Sudikin (2008:12) there are two kinds of participation; contributive and initiative participations:

a. Contributive Participation

Participatory learning strategies will be conducive to good condition due to students have more roles, more open. In this condition, new ideas are easily received and creativity expanded by the students through interaction. This system can be followed by the students who willing to join and to work hard in pair, or group work. Consequently, through their learning, the students will be more responsible toward the implementation of learning because they have motivation to learn. A teacher should motivate the students in the process of teaching and learning. He/she should be better applying a media to interest his/her students to participate his/her learning in the classroom.

From the explanation previously mentioned, the teacher is not only as facilitator but also as motivator who have important roles. By picture, the teacher will be able to enhance students‟ participation in learning Degree of Comparison.

3. Factors of the Students’ Low Participation

According to Abimanyu in Arsini (2007:17), there are three causal factors of students‟ low participation in teaching learning process. They are as follows:

a. Students have less ability to form their idea. Instructions do not call on specific students to respond the question.


c. Students have not accustomed to competitive to give opinion or suggestion to other friends.

The mistakes above are not burdened for students but the teachers‟ responsibility. Sometimes a teacher is aware or unaware to implement the authoritative and avoid questions from students; convey the material object, use one way communication, and also consider the students as a recorder, an acceptor or memorize.

4. Some ways to Increase Students’ Participation in a Classroom

Davis (in http://www.teaching.berkeley.edu/bdg/participation.html) says that there are tactic to increase students‟ participation, as follows:

a. To make certain each student has an opportunity to talk in class during the first, second or third weeks.

c. To ask students to identify characteristic of effective materials. d. To periodically divide students into small group.

e. To assign roles to students.

f. To use poker chips or comment card to encourage and to give their comment.

Based on the explanation above, the researcher concludes that there are some factors that can improve students‟ participation, i.e.:

a. The environment in the classroom


b. The motivation from the teacher

Teacher should provide a safety, encouragement, and mutually appreciate environment in the classroom.

c. The opportunities provided by the teacher

Teacher should provide students many opportunities, such as: 1) Asking and giving opinion

6) Sharing with peer or another friend about the lesson in the classroom.

d. Management of the class

B. Learning


Brown (1980:7) defines learning based on the Contemporary Dictionaries as acquiring or getting of knowledge of a subject or a skill by study, experience or instruction.

Kimble and Garmezy in Brown (1980:7) stated that learning is a relatively permanent change in a behaviour tendency and is the result of reinforced practice.

It means that in learning process, there are changes of behaviour in students‟ cognitive, effective and psychomotor to a positive way and it is

hoped that students will be more progressive in their life. For example, the students can write good sentences after they learn grammar, respect the other friend emotionally and also use their part of body to positive activities, such as speak and walk politely in public place.

A more speciallized definition about learning, Hintzman in Muhibbin Syah (2003:65) stated that learning is a change in organism due to experience which can effect the organism‟s behaviour.

From the explanation above, the researcher concluded that learning is a process of acquring knowledge and a process of behaviour change in individuals who are relative permanent as a result of reinforced practice based on the experience.
