Abstract


This study aims to describe senior high school students’ critical thinking ability who had been taught through a model of PBL integrated to lesson study. This study was carried out in six stages: (1) preliminary study of learning condition; (2) the development of hypothetical strategies; (3) tryout in order to validate training strategy and prototype of PBL instruments; (4) modelling; (5) implementation; and (6) experiment in order to test the practicality and the effectiveness of training strategy. The teacher training strategy in this study is described in lesson study, on the other hand, the student training strategy is described in PBL process in the classroom. PBL learning activity integrated to lesson study was carried out for six cycles (six lesson plans). The results of the study show that; (1) the implementation of PBL integrated to Lesson Study can improve students’ critical thinking ability; (2) students’ critical thinking ability for six cycle has improved from cycle to cycle. PBL barriers are mainly caused by the limitation of IT facilities and time allocation.
