‘The case of children’s literature has seriously taken into consideration by the eighth semester students of Indonesian Education Department (PBSI),’ Setyono said. His concern on children’s literature has urged him to become one of 64 presenters at 2016 national seminar of Association of Indonesian Literature Scholars (HISKI). The event was held at Yogyakarta Language Office last Saturday (28/06/2016) attended by teachers from all over Yogyakarta.
The student, who takes part in Teater JAB and Kreativitas Kita followed a selection of presenters to get an experience especially the one related to the children’s literature. Moreover he is still writing his under graduate thesis related to children’s literature.
Though this was his first experience as a national presenter, Setyono felt challenged and proud he was able to participate in the event amidst his nervous feeling.
‘I was much helped by the lecturers at the department, who have motivated and guided me,’ he said as he was interviewed at Campus II UAD. In his paper, Setyono suggested that the short story Lebah Lebay di Taman Larangan written by Rina Ratih be used as a teaching material for the teaching of four language skills. (dev)
