Science, Project Based Learning, Learning Motivation


Education is basically very important in society, because with education, society will form a civilized character. SDN 01 Pinang Ranti uses curriculum 13, but the scientific approach applied by teachers is not optimal, the learning process in class is still not effective, and teachers still use the lecture method. Students' activeness in learning is still lacking, students' problem solving abilities in working on exam questions are still very low, as can be seen from observations of daily tests on plant grouping material with an average score of 49.55. In the learning process in class IIIC, students' learning motivation is still low. The aim of this research is to increase the learning motivation of class IIIC students in science subjects. The research method used is classroom action research and the models used are the Kemmis and MC models. Taggart. Kurt Lewin. Data collection techniques were carried out using questionnaires, interviews, observation and documentation. Data analysis techniques were carried out based on those expressed by Miles and Huberman. The research results showed that in the pre-cycle, the level of student learning motivation was quite low, namely 38%. After taking action in cycle I, it was found that student learning motivation increased to 41% and increased again in cycle II with a figure of 65%. The conclusion is that the use of the PjBL learning model can be applied to increase the learning motivation of class IIIC students in science subjects.
