Abstract

This research aims to change the effective learning process and encourage students to be more active and creative. As the main objective of MEC (2005), to educate students to become competent members of society as a product of one of the dimensions of science. Research focuses on drama as a method for teaching values and attitudes in education in Paraguay, where values and attitudes must be taught in science subjects because values and attitude are part of basic training every student and schools have a responsibility to achieve these goals as the main goal of the entire education system. Values and attitudes can be represented such as awareness-raising, tolerance, inclusion, and community sustainability. The studies analyzed relate to ways to make drama performances, as a pedagogic practice, that teachers can use in enlarging students’ science abilities such as student behavior and attitudes to become promoters of peace education. In this case, explicitly focusing on Dramatic Performance (DP) as a pedagogic tool to emphasize the teaching of values in science lessons. This study sees drama as an artistic expression that can be developed easily by teachers of various levels and can be applied in all subjects as a fun learning strategy.  Through interviews, strong evidence is found that learning with drama helps teachers make the classroom more dynamic, fun, and participatory. In addition, this kind of method increases students’ curiosity, motivating them to participate actively in the learning process.

Abstract

This research originated from a phenomenon that shows the low ability of students to think logically. This study aims to provide solutions to improve students' logical thinking skills by using discovery learning with truth or dare techniques. This type of research is a quasi-experimental design with a two-group pretest-posttest. The data were collected using a pre-test and post-test of students' logical thinking skills. The population in this study were students of class VII SMPN 5 Ponorogo. Those who were randomly selected as samples were class VII-F as the experimental class and class VII-I as the control class. Furthermore, data analysis was performed using the t-test. The results showed that the effectiveness of the discovery learning model of truth or dare learning technique with conventional learning has a significant difference. The ability to think logically between students who use the Discovery Learning learning model truth or dare technique is higher than the logical thinking skills of students who use conventional learning. The use of this learning model provides the opportunity for students to find concepts related to the material independently. As a result, students can hone and optimize their logical thinking skills to solve the problems they face during the learning process.
