Abstract

Under the new Indonesian education paradigm, “guru penggerak” (mover teachers) and “merdeka belajar” (freedom in learning), teachers, including English teachers, in Indonesia are given room to use teaching materials and strategies appropriate to students’ condition and need. However, it is not clear how this paradigm is responded by English teachers given the lack of learning resources. This paper examines English teachers’ responses to the new Indonesian education paradigm based on data obtained from a case study of Batu Layar English Teachers' Consultative Group (MGMP) in West Lombok involving twenty (20) teachers purposively selected as the sample of the study. The data were collected through observing teachers’ activities in the MGMP meetings, interviewing them on how they respond to the new education paradigm and collecting teaching and learning related documents. The results show that students and pedagogical factors influence the teachers to positively and negatively respond to the new education paradigm.
