The Effectiveness of Student's Worksheet Containing Ethnoscience in Hydrolysis of Salt to Increase the Science Literacy of High School Student

Agnes Ariningtyas | Sri Wardani [5]

Abstract: The process of learning science in the classroom should lead students to literate about science and technology. Learning activities should utilize optimally potential environment, especially the local culture so that the learning more meaningful but in reality this has not always done by the teacher. Test result and evaluation of PISA 2015 showing mastery material Indonesia students also still classified as low. One effort that can be done is implement the learning by design is students worksheet (LKS containing ethnoscience. This research aims to develop is LKS as ethnoscience-laden material hydrolysis of salt to enhance the literacy of science high school students. This research is the development of research or Researchand Development (R & D). The Research Design used was a pretest and post test control group design. Research data obtained by the method of interview, observation, documentation, the now, and test. The results showed that ethnoscience charge is LKS to improve science literacy on the material the hydrolysis of salt has developed increase the content aspect of the students in class experiments with the acquisition of N-Gain of 0.71 in high context aspect category of students with obtaining N-Gain amounted to 0.73 in a high category and aspects of the process of science students with obtaining N-Gain of 0.50 in that category are, and the students gave positive response towards implementation is LKS as a charged ethnoscience salts are developed in the category of good or of 77.67 %
