Education goal is not to produce higher exam scores, but to educate learners to become responsible people with well-developed minds and good character. Fact says, most of the students who graduated from Islamic elementary school in Kera island (a small island in the Gulf of Kupang city, East Nusa Tenggara Province, Indonesia) prefer to work as fishermen instead of continuing their study to higher education levels. This practice has been continued for several years. In relation to such fact, the present study aims to reveal the teacher-student interaction in connection to teacher’s behaviour in students’ motivation practice. For this purpose, a qualitative research design was applied to gain deeper understanding on such practice naturally. The data collection process was part of authors’ Community Service Project (IbM RISTEKDIKTI for Bajo tribe) on the island. Data were collected using classroom observations and semi-structured interviews. This study reveals that the teacher performed positive roles in motivating the students during classroom interaction. Hopefully, the present study may help teachers and educators in Indonesia concerning teacher behaviours in elementary classroom environment.
Key words: Teacher’s behaviour / students’ motivation
