AMAZING UNIPA RACE: A SHARED CLASSROOM EXPERIENCEAbstract views: 101
What makes learners shun speaking English in the classroom?
Are they are shy, lack of confidence or afraid of making grammatical
mistakes? One of many ways to overcome this problem is by using
cooperative learning. In cooperative learning, the undergraduates are
encouraged to work in small groups in order to create3-D miniature
models and finally gallery walk. In the Universitas PGRI Adi Buana
(UNIPA), there is an activity named â€•Amazing UNIPA Raceâ€–. An activity
encourages students to use verbal communication during Cross Cultural
Understanding (CCU) class. Students work in small groups and must also
be a team player. Amazing UNIPA Race promotes fun learning activity
and studentsâ€˜ creativity in creating 3-D miniature models. Therefore, this
paper is intended to share and provide an activity as a model where
students are motivated to speak and enjoy fun activities. This paper is
presented as a hands-on experience of the Amazing UNIPA Race to the
participants who want to use it for their classroom teaching.
