Improving Social Science Learning Activeness Using Problem-Based Learning Assisted by Flash Card Media
Keywords:active learning, social sciences, problem based learning
The purpose of this classroom action research is to describe learning Social Sciences using a problem-based learning model assisted by flash card media to increase the active learning of elementary school students. The research was conducted in two cycles. Cycle I was held on May 16, 2023 and cycle II was held on May 29, 2023. The research model used in this class action research consisted of 4 stages, namely planning, implementation, observation and reflection. Data collection techniques using observation and documentation. The instrument used in this research is the charts. Data analysis techniques use qualitative descriptions. The results showed that by using the problem-based learning model assisted by flash card media, the activity of fourth-grade students in learning social sciences increased. This can be seen from the results of observations of student learning activeness in the pre-action obtained 49,68%. In cycle I it increased to 68.49% and in cycle II it increased to 79.97%. It can be concluded that the problem-based learning model assisted by flash card media can increase the activeness of learning Social Sciences for elementary school students.
