           Rotational Dynamics

    • Authors: Qisthi Fariyani, Ziyana Walida Prama, Joko Budi Poernomo
      Abstract: This R&D research resulted in a four-tier diagnostic test instrument based on local wisdom. The purpose of the study was to describe the instrument's characteristics, test the validity, reliability, and characteristics of the items developed, and describe the misconception profile of the students of MA Islamiyyah Attanwir Talun. The development method uses the Borg & Gall model with sample selection through purposive sampling. Data collection techniques include tests, interviews, questionnaires, and documentation. The test instrument was made by correlating physics material and the local wisdom of the community. The validity test results by the expert stated that the instrument developed was valid. The reliability of the developed instrument is 0.978. The test instrument consisted of 15 moderate and 13 difficult questions; with differentiating power, 12 items were corrected, seven were accepted but had to be corrected, and nine were accepted without improvement. There were 50% misconceptions about the answer, 57.14% about the reason, and 50% about the answer and reason. The highest misconception occurs in the concept of applying the moment of inertia, with a percentage of 67.23%. The lowest misconception is found in the concept of rigid body equilibrium, with a percentage of 38.98%.

      Abstract: The common major teachers' issue in classroom situations is creating an effective learning environment by involving their competencies to connect rational understanding, conceptual approach, and adaptive reasoning in delivering content subject matter. Moreover, the CBI implementation in the context of foreign language teaching requires teachers to have the ability to design content-based lesson planning and emphasize language proficiency. This study involves narrative inquiry to explore female pre-service EFL teachers' experiences with content-based instruction during teacher preparation program. The study was framed with theoretical concepts related to teacher professional knowledge of EFL and PCK (Pedagogical Content Knowledge) as EFL teachers' manner described her pedagogical knowledge. The data were obtained from various sources (e.g., interviews, post-observation, learning diary, autobiography, and personal accounts). The data have subsequently been analyzed that produce evidence of how the participant actively applies CBI in a teaching practice placement, how she created a classroom situation, and her aspiration concerning CBI in the career future. The findings of this study support “Martel, J. (2018). Three foreign language student teachers’ experiences with content-based instruction: exploring the identity/innovation interface” claim that PCK allows a student-teacher to implement CBI successfully.
