This study adopted Theo van Leeuwen's (2008) social actor framework which comprises exclusion and inclusion. Exclusion consists of backgrounding, while inclusion consists of activation, subjection, individualization, assimilation, functionalization, and nomination. A qualitative approach was applied in this study. The data were collected from six selected news articles published by The Jakarta Post, South China Morning Post, and The New York Times. The findings revealed that both protesters and government were represented through exclusion and inclusion strategy. In terms of exclusion, the findings revealed not only that the protesters were represented for involving in critical process of the protest and being the driving force of the movement, but also being violent during the protest. In the case of government representation, not only that the government were detached from a reported action, but also constructed for not opposing the protesters. In terms of inclusion, the findings indicated that the protesters were represented as being unfaltering, being active through field and online protest, as well as being violent and committing a potentially crime activity. In the case of the government, the actors were represented as being sluggish, aggressive, abusing power, but on another hand also being a crowd-dispersal agent and target of violence. In conclusion, the use of van Leeuwen?s social actor framework revealed that news portal excluded and included social actors to suit their objective </p> Zelin Prastika Suprayogi Copyright (c) 2021 English Journal Literacy Utama 2021-09-29 2021-09-29 6 1 410 422 LANGUAGE CHOICE AT THE AIRPORT WITHIN THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC https://ejl.widyatama.ac.id/index.php/ejlutama/article/view/151 <p>The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way humans act in public, and airports are no exception. The sets of signs related to health protocols placed within the area of the airports are one of the stakeholders’ efforts to limit people’s physical behavior. This study aims to describe the language choice used in formulating the signs that curb the protocol for preventing the transmission of the COVID-19 at the airports. The data collected consist of the visual documentation of verbal signs related to the virus prevention protocols at I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, Bali. Language variation found in all data are English and Indonesian languages. Within the scope of linguistic landscape, the data are analyzed by distinguishing between top-down and bottom-up signs, which, respectively, represent the airport authorities and the private parties. The results of this research show that, first, monolingual top-down signs are predominant with 10 signs, followed by seven bilingual top-down signs, two monolingual bottom-up signs, and one bilingual bottom-up signs. Second, in terms of language order and positioning, there are four signs with English positioned on top as the main language, and the same number of signs feature Indonesian as the main language.

This condition challenges teachers to design the materials and activities for pre and in class respectively. This paper proposes English flip classroom design for students at vocational school to habituate them to read online at home (habituating students’ autonomy at Bloom’s LOTS- remembering and understanding) and to perform collaboration through PBET, PJBL, or PBL (habituating students with Bloom’s MOTS-HOTS- applying, analyzing, evaluating and creating) to result in the formation of reading literacy skill to face the AKM at 11 grades.</p> Nina Fatriana Copyright (c) 2021 English Journal Literacy Utama 2021-09-29 2021-09-29 6 1 432 443 STUDENTS’ ENGAGEMENT IN LEARNING ENGLISH VOCABULARY VIA GAMES IN KAHOOT! https://ejl.widyatama.ac.id/index.php/ejlutama/article/view/153 <p>This study deals with how students are involved in the use of Kahoot in learning English.

This study is framed within a qualitative case study involving four English teachers from two high schools in Sidoarjo, East Java. In order to understand the subjects' perspectives, personal interviews were utilized. The data having been collected, it were transcribed verbatim and analyzed thematically. The current study's findings show that teachers practiced translanguaging mainly when they explained the materials, such as grammar. In this sense, the sole motivation of using translanguaging is that grammar is complex and explaining in English is far more complicated. In addition, teachers also practiced translanguaging when they managed the classroom, showing shared cultural values. Further analysis showed that translanguaging helps teachers achieve their goals, and one of the goals is helping their students understand the materials explained in English better. The results of this study are expected to be advantageous for the teachers to be aware of the importance of translanguaging practices in the EFL classroom.</p> Fabelia Indah Putri Irfan Rifai Copyright (c) 2021 English Journal Literacy Utama 2021-09-29 2021-09-29 6 1 460 470 THE IDENTIFICATION OF MORPHOGRAPHEMIC CHANGES IN INDONESIAN WRITING RESULTS OF DYSGRAPHIC STUDENTS AT YAYASAN PANTARA JAKARTA AS A SECOND LANGUAGE ACQUISITION https://ejl.widyatama.ac.id/index.php/ejlutama/article/view/156 <p>The importance of acquiring Indonesian language as a second language underlies the research towards the Indonesian writing results of dysgraphic students at Yayasan Pantara Jakarta. It is very important for Indonesians to acquire Indonesian language because Indonesian language is used as the first language for some city dwellers and a second language for most Indonesians.

The research used descriptive-qualitative method. The data was taken at Yayasan Pantara Jakarta Elementary School after being conducted direct field survey toward dysgraphic students. The writing analysed based on online KBBI (Indonesian Dictionary) and some theories related to the research. We used the primary theories from Bussmann (1996), Šev?íková (2018), and BOTH (2016).
