    Abstract

    What people think can be reflected by what they are doing, this phenomenon also occurs in classroom. What teachers do in the classroom is reflection of their beliefs. Teachers’ beliefs are something that unobservable but they can be represented by teachers’ knowledge, attitude, individual choices (such as plan: assess, judge, accept or deny), understanding and behaviors in classroom. Beliefs also way of how teachers see the world around them and they influence their thought and lead them to behave in classroom activity. The objectives of the research are: (1) to find out and describe about teacher’s beliefs; (2) to find out and describe the factors that influence teacher’s beliefs; (3) to find out and describe the relationship between teacher’s beliefs in grammar to the grammar teaching practice. This study was qualitative case study and the subject was an experienced teacher in SMA Negeri 5 Surakarta. Experienced teacher refers to the time of her teaching experience, as the teacher had been teaching for fifteen years. The data were collected by using in-depth interview with teacher and students and passive participant observation. The data were analyzed using qualitative data analysis by Miles and Huberman (1994). There are three steps of qualitative data analysis; they are (1) data reduction, (2) data display, and (3) conclusion drawing and verification. The result of the research shows that the teacher had some pedagogical issues related with beliefs about grammar and beliefs about teaching grammar. This research also describes the sources of the teacher’s beliefs and describes the teacher’s grammar teaching practices. The research reveals that beliefs influence grammar teaching practices The research suggests that teachers’ beliefs are strongly influence to their teaching practice, for that reason this is essential to consider the area of teacher cognition especially in Indonesian context as we know the number of this sort of research is in few.
