The study was conducted in a cyclic process, starting from planning, acting, observing, and reflecting. It was implemented in two cycles. The subjects of this research were the elementary level students from Timothy English School, Sintang. The study found out that the implementation of the short dialogue memorization technique has improved the active involvement of the students in class.

Abstract:
Presentations that consist of many sentences, causing students to be unable to develop their use of language. They prefer to read rather than to explain the material by using their own words. This will affect the students' speaking skills. Therefore, this study discusses the students' language used in a presentation by using mind mapping. By using a mind mapping strategy, students are not able to write down all the sentences they present. They only write down the important points of the material so they have to try to make their sentences to explain their material. This research was conducted in two cycles. The data obtained were analyzed based on the theory of surface strategy taxonomy and it was explained descriptively qualitatively. The results showed that the grammatical errors made by students in their presentations using the mind mapping strategy were in the category of omission, addition, misformation and misordering.Keywords: Mind mapping; speaking skill; surface strategy taxonomy

Abstract:
Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, teaching and learning activities have changed dramatically. Within the Indonesian context, for example, beginning March 2020, the Indonesian government applied a social distancing policy. The situation forced both students and teachers to study and teach from home as the schools were closed to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. This included how pre-service teachers learnt to teach. Intended to explore pre-service English teachers’ experiences related to their teaching practicum in this pandemic time, this paper focuses on gaining in-depth information related to how the research participants view their experiences during a microteaching class at an Indonesian university. The study involved six pre-service teachers who took the microteaching class. The main data were collected from pre-service teachers through written reflection and from an open-ended questionnaire. In addition, recorded videos of participants’ teaching practices were also used to triangulate the data. Data analysis was qualitatively to see the emerging themes. The findings indicates that teacher candidates in the study view their microteaching experiences as both positive and negative ways. They consider it as a positive experience as they could have high confidence in teaching. It is a negative experience because they did not have experience managingthe classroom. Despite their mixed experiences, the participants in the study still consider their teaching practice experiences to be useful in preparing their teaching practicum at schools.

Abstract:
One of the learning models offered to overcome writing difficulties is a learning media based on local wisdom. Local wisdom is basic knowledge obtained from everyday life. This model will make students interested and like writing activities because it was close to their daily life. Social function or communicative approach of descriptive text is to describe a particular person, place, or thing in detail or clearly. This research was conducted through Classroom Action Research. Classroom Action research is about working towards practical outcomes, and also about creating new forms of understanding. In this research, learning media based on local wisdom has a good impact on improving students' ability to write descriptive texts, including that students can understand several local cultures that are close to their lives so that they can preserve the culture more broadly. This English learning media based on local wisdom can be the effective technique and it could be used as the alternative way in teaching writing because the technique was easy to be implemented and it was the one of interesting technique which very closed to the students’ learning activities

Abstract:
Reading is often perceived as a key activity for helping students learn a new language, not only in the first language but also in the foreign language. Unfortunately, some surveys report that Indonesian people have a low reading habit. Thus, this research develops a reading book which is visually interesting, easy in level, and not too long. The research followed the extensive reading framework as it was said capable of maintaining student’s motivation in reading. This research also adopted bilingualism principles and was packed with local-related topics such as tourism destinations in Pontianak City. ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation) model was chosen as the main methodology because it was believed as the most popular and has been used extensively in R&D research. However, due to time and word count limitations, the current paper only discusses the first three steps of the ADDIE model. Results of the research confirmed earlier reports having documented the participant’s low level of reading motivation. Such a claim was derived from data related to the reading duration and the quantity of books that the students read. Besides, their English competence was also lacking, so a bilingual book might be preferred. The students also revealed that they barely found an English language book containing local culture information. This information then became a starting point for the researcher in designing the reading book. The information allowed the researcher to determine the book content, the vocabulary levels, the length, and its visual appearance.
