Abstract
The present study aimed at describing the English teacher’s problems in implementing
the 2013 curriculum in online learning at SMA Muhammadiyah Boarding School
Tarakan. A case study was conducted to an English teacher at SMA Muhammadiyah
Boarding School Tarakan. Data were collected through observation, interview, and
documentation. The concurrent flows of analysis (data reduction, data display, and
conclusion drawing) were used to reveal the English teaching problems. The result of
analysis disclosed the problems from three teaching dimensions. In the preparation,
the teacher found a hard struggling to compile the instructional documents because of
the limitation of time in making the documents and in obtaining the references for
online learning. In the teaching and learning process, the teacher did not fully meet
the target of learning materials listed in the lesson plans because he had to adapt the
materials to the online class atmosphere. Controlling the students’ activities was also
the challenging part during online class because the teacher could not see the students
directly. Although, the teacher had mastered on how to use online learning platforms,
some students could not use those platforms appropriately. The other problems were
unstable internet connection and support from students’ parents. These led the
students became passive and decrease their motivation. In the assessment process, the
teacher felt burdened because the assessment components were too complex. Besides
that, there was a lot of tolerances given by the teacher to students.
