Trained Peer Response to Develop EFL Students' Positive Attitudes toward Peer Response
Utami Widiati
TEFLIN Journal , 2003,
Abstract: This article reports part of a broader action-research study on training EFL students in the use of strategies for effective peer response. Surveys using questionnaires were conducted among 20 university students involved in the action research to measure the changes in attitudes toward peer response before and after the classroom-based action research. The findings suggest that significant changes were obtained in all the questionnaire items regarding attitudes toward peer response. The students indicated that classmates' oral and written comments helped them enrich the content of their writing, improve the organization of their writing, and improve the language (including grammar and vocabulary) of their writing.
Out of a Writing Conference: Speaking Writing Connection
Utami Widiati
TEFLIN Journal , 1997,
Abstract: : In our TEFL situation, it is simply in the classroom that we expect our students to get the language exposures as much as possible since the language is not used outside the classroom. Therefore, every opportunity in the teaching learning process should be geared towards the students' using the target language.This paper highlights how oral communication skills can be encouraged even in a writing class. With a paradigmatic change in the teaching of writing, teachers do not value only `the product' but also `the process'. When translated into the classroom, one of the features of this new paradigm, the writing process approach, is `the conference', which occurs between teacher and students as well as between students. As Mol (1992) states, writing conference provides students with immediate, meaningful responses to their writing, developing students' ability to reflect upon their own writing and the writing of others in a critical and constructive way. Looking back at our own experience in teaching writing, the conference does not only scaffold the students in the process of meaning-making but also creates an atmosphere where they are actively engaged in a `more focused' talk. This is of paramount importance since our students tend to speak in their native language even in the classroom.
The Teaching of EFL Vocabulary in The Indonesian Context: The State of The Art
Bambang Yudi Cahyono,Utami Widiati
TEFLIN Journal , 2006,
Abstract: There has been extensive literature on the teaching of vocabulary of English as a foreign language (EFL vocabulary) in the Indonesian context. However, a comprehensive analysis on the teaching of EFL vocabulary in this country has been a rare endeavour. This article aims to underpin various issues of the teaching of EFL vocabulary and relate them to a wider context of second/foreign language vocabulary teaching and review results of research as well as current practices of EFL vocabulary teaching and learning in the Indonesian context. It is expected that this article could provide an outline of the teaching of EFL vocabulary and some recommendations for future research and practices.

Abstract: This descriptive-qualitative case study was conducted to describe the implementation of English team teaching at SMA Negeri (Senior High School) 2 Malang in terms of the objectives, the shared responsibilities among teachers, perceptions of the teachers and students, and factors influencing the implementation. Four English teachers and 106 students of Year 10 and Year 11, selected using a purposive random sampling technique, were involved. The data were collected through interviews and questionnaire. The findings show that the reasons for implementing team teaching were the adequate number of English teachers, empowerment in the subject they taught, and forming bonds among teachers and students. Different types of shared re-sponsibilities were found among the teachers. Additionally, both the teachers and the students had positive perceptions concerning the effectiveness of team teaching. In-stead of having difficulties, all the teachers saw the existence of supporting factors in their implementing team teaching.

Endemic species of Impatiens spp. (Balsaminaceae) in Sumatra and its possibility as an ornamental plants
NANDA UTAMI
Biodiversitas , 2006,
Abstract: Inventory study of Impatiens has been done in Sumatra. Twenty five species of Impatiens were colleted from several research sites. Based on the morphological flower and their color, 9 species among them, such as I. tujuhensis Utami & T. Shimizu, I. elephanticeps Grey-Wilson, I. sorikensis N. Utami, I. pilosivitata Grey-Wilson, I. steenisii Grey-Wilson, I. sidikalangensis Grey-Wilson, I. pseudoperezii Grey-Wilson, I. rubriflora Grey-Wilson, and I. batanggadisensis N. Utami have potential as ornamental plants. I. tujuhensis Utami et T. Shimizu is closely related to I. elephanticeps Grey-Wilson. The two taxa are characterized by lower sepal like an elephant’s trunk, but I. tujuhensis differs from I. elephanticeps in having leaf lamina pubescent above with crenulated margins, petioles with several stipulated glands, the smaller tepals densely pubescent outside, but with lateral united petals which are bent backward along the midrib, the upper portions of the lateral united petals with a brown-purple patch and the dorsal petal with dense brown-purple reticulation inside. I. sorikensis N. Utami finds its closest ally in I. pilosivitata Grey-Wilson. They differ in a number of important aspects: the shape of the lateral petals, the color of the flowers, and the shape of the leaves. I. steenisii Grey-Wilson has a broader navicular lower sepal with a short incurved spur; flowers when viewed from the front have a curious bilateral asymmetry caused by a twist in the lateral united petals. I. sidikalangensis Grey-Wilson is characterized by rather flat or shallowly cupped, white or pale pink flowers, the dorsal petal and the base of the two lateral petals stained with reddish or lilac-purple. I. pseudoperezii Grey-Wilson has large pink or purple, with long curved spurs. I. rubriflora Grey-Wilson is the only species with red flowers, with its stout inflorescence and narrow bucciniform lower sepal. I. batanggadisensis N. Utami is characterized by yellow flowers with red markings on the bases of the two lateral petals, emarginated lower petals, and glabrous leaves.
Foreign Language Writing and Translation
Wuri Soedjatmiko,Agnes Santi Widiati
TEFLIN Journal , 2003,
Abstract: In L1 writing, every writer is said to have experienced writer's block. To overcome this writers are suggested that they continue writing without stopping to edit typing mistakes or find appropriate words. Using 14 fourth-semester students of the English Department whose L1 is Indonesian as subjects, and consulting experts' findings and experience in writing, this study attempts to qualitatively describe the flow of thoughts of the subjects while writing in English, i.e., whether or not they think in bahasa Indonesia and translate it into English. Three steps are employed. The first is by evaluating the subjects first writing draft to see whether or not they choose appropriate words, compose sentences, and put them in coherent paragraphs. Some guiding assumptions are drawn from their work on the strategies utilized to overcome writer's block. The second step is checking through open interviews. The last step sees whether or not the strategies are related to the writer's language competence as shown by the average of subjects grades in dictation, reading, writing and structure from Semester 1 to Semester 4. The findings show that strategies used whether or not translation is used are not affected by the subjects' language competence. Almost all subjects think in bahasa Indonesia and translate their thoughts into English. From the four subjects who claim to always write directly in English, only two write clearly and well-organized writing, and one of them the best of all even says that she does not hesitate to consult dictionary if necessary. This study then suggests the teaching of EFL writing in class encourage students to think in Indonesian. In writing the first draft, students should be allowed or advised to write the Indonesian expressions to maintain the flow of their writing.

Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2012.37070
Abstract: Nitrous oxide (N2O) gas is a fourth contributor in the greenhouse effect after CO2, CH4, and water vapor. Although its concentration is relatively low, but very difficult to be decomposed in the atmosphere. A laboratory-scale biofilter was used to evaluate the effects of flow rate, medium depth, and water content of filter medium on the N2O removal efficiency and the growth of microorganisms in the compost. The biofilter was operated using cow-manure based compost medium with husk and coco peat as bulking agent. Research was carried out by batch flow system for 9 hours. The result indicates that the highest N2O removal efficiency is obtained under flow rate of 88 cm3/min with a depth of 50 cm and water content 50% (w/w) by 61%, and elimination capacity for 14078 g/(m3·h) was achieved.

Abstract: Applications of three different sources of N fertilizers (urea, compost from slaughter house and chicken manure compost) on vegetable crops (tomato, okra and spinach) were conducted in the green house of Research Institute for Food Crop Biotechnology, Bogor from August of 1999 to April of 2000. Treatments consisted of: (i) without fertilizer, (ii) 5 g N/pot of urea, (iii) 10 g N/pot of slaughter house compost, (iv) 10 g N/pot of chicken manure compost, (v) 5 g N/pot of urea + 10 g N/pot of slaughter house compost, and (vi) 5 g N/pot of urea + 10 g N/pot of chicken manure compost. Completely Randomized Design with 3 replicates was used in the experiments. In the first experiment, tomatoes were planted in the first season, following by okra in the second season. In the second experiment, spinach was planted for 6 times. Urea and compost were applied only once at the beginning of the experiment. Results of the experiments showed that for the first experiment
