Keywords:Motivation, Learning Outcomes, Project Based Learning (PjBL)
This study aims to increase student motivation and learning outcomes regarding the Use of Capital Letters using the Project Based Learning (PjBL) model in class II students of SDN X. This type of research is Classroom Action Research (CAR), using the Kemmis and McTaggart models which include planning, action and observation, as well as reflection on each cycle. The subjects in this study were class II students at SDN X, totaling 12 students. Data collection techniques using tests, observation, and documentation. Data were analyzed by descriptive quantitative and qualitative. Indicators of success are the average percentage of students' learning motivation of ≥85% and the average class score of ≥80 and the percentage of students who complete is ≥85% with the specified KKM of 80. The results showed that the application of the Project Based Learning (PjBL) model to material on the Use of Capital Letters could increase the motivation and learning outcomes of class II students at SDN X. The results showed. Increasing student motivation from pre-action reached 50.35%. to 72.22% in cycle I and in cycle II to 86.11%. The increase in learning outcomes can be seen in the class average score in the pre-action reaching 64.67 and experiencing an increase in cycle I and cycle II, from 81.67 to 88.33. An increase also occurred in the percentage of student completeness, namely from the pre-action where 5 students or 41.67% completed. to 10 students or 83.33% in cycle I and in cycle II to as many as 11 students or 91.67%.
