Development Fun-Chem Learning Materials Integrated Socio-Science Issues to Increase Students Scientific Literacy

Anita Fibonacci | Sudarmin [4]


Abstract: Field study research showed that the students were not familiar with the type of questions issued by the PISA for scientific literacy aspects. This is thought to be one of causes of Indonesian students scientific literacy level that had rank 64 out of 65 participating countries. The low scientific literacy teaching, because learning materials used have not contextual and relates in everyday life. This research to develop teaching materials that can be a bridge of gap between theory learned in school with everyday life. This study aims to determine the feasibility of Fun-Chem learning materials Integrated to socio-sciences to increase the scientific literacy of vocational school students. This research used Research and Development (R & D) procedures that consist of define, design, and develop stage. The technique to analyse data used descriptive and inferential statistical analysis. The result of the Fun-Chem learning materials fulfilled the criteria for a valid, effective and had a positive response from students, with the N-gain performance for scientific literacy competency is 0.68 (medium). This is because the characteristics of the Fun-Chem learning materials is made student happy, also linking the socio science issues to the chemistry subject material, espescially redox material. The Fun-Chem learning materials were also completed with inquiry worksheets that helped students to construct a pattern in which the invention of the expected concept.
