  • Lecturers’ perception on students’ critical thinking skills
           development and problems faced by students in developing their critical
           thinking skills

    • Authors: Astuti Muh. Amin, Romi Adiansyah
      Pages: 1 - 10
      Abstract: Critical thinking emerges when learners attempt to use their background knowledge to construct meaning through interpreting, analyzing, and manipulating information in responding to a problem or a question that requires more than a single correct answer. Two factors that affect the improvement of the students’ critical thinking skills are lecturers’ activities and students’ activities. This study was a descriptive quantitative study which aimed to investigate (1) how lecturers perceive the development of students’ critical thinking skills and (2) drawbacks or obstacles that hinder the development of students’ critical thinking skills. The type of this research is a survey research with the descriptive quantitative approach. The research samples were taken from the population by using purposive sampling technique. Data was collected using a questionnaire, an observation sheet, and interviews. The research findings are 32.05% of the lecturers evaluated their students' critical thinking skills; therefore, promoting lecturers' awareness of developing students' critical thinking skills is necessary. In addition, the results of the present study also indicated that the development of students' critical thinking skills could interfere with many aspects including lecturers, students, frequencies of scientific meetings, and facilities.

           implementing lesson study in Indonesia

    • Authors: Nurwidodo Nurwidodo, Sumar Hendayana, Iin Hindun, Eri Sarimanah
      Pages: 11 - 22
      Abstract: Lesson Study for Learning Community (LSLC) contains two terminologies underpinning one another. There are many difficult challenges when the plan to create LSLC surfaces. Therefore, strong motivation and precise implementation strategies are of urgency. One of the ways is by developing networking of LSLC between universities and partner schools. The LSLC program will become powerful when it is done collaboratively in a form of strong partnership connected by networks. Writing this article aims to describe strategies for establishing networking with partner schools for implementing lesson study in Indonesia. This review article uses literature comparison study methods and use content analysis. In order for LSLC to manifest and become successful, resourcing and utilizing the partnership with schools are required. In a partnership with schools in order to implement LSLC, both parties must share the same need, which is facing the challenge with the willingness to cooperate for solving the problem. Cooperation with partner schools needs to be nurtured to become networking so that the benefits and the spirit of cooperation in solving problem double fold. Networking with partner schools can be implemented and can function well when the management of this networking conforms to shared needs, nurtures cooperation and mutual respect, gives and takes equally, and also promotes fair acceptance, support, independence, and discipline.

      Pages: 29 - 34
      Abstract: This study aimed to determine the effect of Problem-Based Learning (PBL) model on tenth grade students’ higher-order thinking skills (HOTS) in ecosystem concept. The design of this study was quasi experimental research with "nonequivalent pretest-posttest control group design". The population of this study was X grade students in Senior High School (SHS) Kandangan, South Kalimantan. The sample were chosen through random sampling technique. The sample will be tested for equivalence based on the data of from the report card from the first semester. The instrument of data collection is students' HOTS rubric that developed by Hart (1994) with a range of scores for each question ranging from 0 to 4. One way analysis of variance (anava) was used as hypothesis test in this study. The result showed that PBL learning model had a positive effect on HOTS. It can be seen from the average of HOTS level of control class was 28.40 and treatment class was 36,23 and seen from F value = 20.97 whereas F table = 0.05 means F arithmetic > F table.

      Pages: 43 - 52
      Abstract: In Zoology course, students often have difficulty to identify several invertebrates. Android-based learning media is currently an alternative way of solving some problems during the learning process. Therefore, android-based learning media that assist students to identify invertebrates was developed in this study. This research method used to research and development model (R&D) developed by Borg and Gall (1983) that consisting 10 steps, that are research and data collection; planning the educational product; developing the product's preliminary form; initial field testing; the first revision of main product; main field testing; operational product revision; operational field testing; final product revision; and dissemination. The validation results from the material expert I, material expert II, and media experts were 96.6%; 94.3%; and 94.7%, respectively.  That results concluded I-Invertebrata was feasible for use in learning but requires minor revision. Furthermore, the results of quasi-experimental research that was analyzed by using analysis of covariance test showed the learning motivation of students who use I-Invertebrata is significantly higher than students who do not use I-Invertebrata.

           spp.) diversity in mangrove ecosystem

    • Authors: Ajizatunnisa Ajizatunnisa, Sri Wahyuni, Lud Waluyo, Fuad Jaya Miharja
      Pages: 61 - 66
      Abstract: The purpose of this development study is to develop research-based booklet for the identification of fiddler crab (Uca spp.) diversity. Some people do not yet know the ecological benefits of fiddler crabs. This is apparent when some people take fiddler crabs to serve as decorative crabs. The product specifications expected in the development of this medium are booklets. Therefore, it takes a companion learning media that can lead the local community to implement self-learning in the form of booklet because their interest of reading is very less, especially when reading a book that is colorless and has a lot of words. Booklet that is packed with interesting and accompanied by pictures is an alternative solution. The development method used in the research is Exploration, Explanation, and Evaluate (3E) model. The research was conducted by developing the research result into a booklet based on the diversity of fiddler crabs in mangrove ecosystem. The booklet validation consists of two lecturers from the Department of Biology Education at the University of Muhammadiyah Malang which is a material expert and learning media expert. The result of this research is booklet very valid with the percentage of material expert validity 81.25% and learning media expert 95.13%.

  • Two sides of the same coin: Student justification for or against
           evolutionary theory

    • Authors: Pratchayapong Yasri, Thanakorn Maleesut
      Pages: 75 - 84
      Abstract: Students accepting evolution are likely to rely on science as cognitive authority (i.e. science textbooks and science teachers). In contrast, those not accepting are likely to rely on religion as cognitive authority (i.e. religious texts and religious leaders).  A thematic analysis based on existing quantitative and qualitative studies has been carried out in order to propose a theoretical framework for a range of reasons contributing to students' acceptance and rejection of evolutionary theory. This article urges that instruction of evolution is more than the matter of delivering scientific contents. It also deals with personal worldviews influenced by different forms of cognitive authority. It is therefore important to put more emphasis on developing students’ learning skills to critically evaluate which source of information is scientifically appropriate, with full respect to religious belief of individuals.
