The Development of Organization of Living things Module through the use of Mnemonic and Mind Mapping Method using Brain-Based Learning Approach for Junior High School Natural Science Learning in Coastal Areas
MetadataShow full item record
The reading interest of people living in coastal areas is still low. To improve the reading interest, a module that can support learning and attract students' attention are developed through the use of mnemonic and mind mapping method in a Brain-based Learning (BBL) approach. The objective of the study is to develop a valid, practical and effective Natural Science module that is suitable for coastal community. This study is a research and development (R&D) which used Thiagarajan’s 4-D Model. The procedures were limited to three stages (define, design, and develop), while the other stage (disseminate) was not conducted. The instruments used for data collection consisted of validation sheets, pretest/post-test questions and student response questionnaire. A trial of product design on a limited and extensive group basis was conducted. The subjects of the study were students in class 7A, 7C, and 7F of SMPN 5 Situbondo in the academic year of 2017/2018. In terms of validity, practicality and effectiveness, the analysis of the module showed that it is very valid, very practical, and quite effective. Therefore, it is suitable to be applied for Natural Science learning in coastal areas.
