DEVELOPMENT OF TEACHING MATERIALS INTEGRATED WITH GENERIC SCIENCE SKILLS ON ACID-BASE SUBJECT
The use of textbooks owned by the teacher is still too dense in material and also lack of explanation with the addition of pictures so it is more difficult for students to understand what is being learned. Student success can also be measured from the basic abilities of students in undergoing the learning process. This basic ability is known as generic skills. The purpose of this research was to find out how the feasibility of the teaching materials being developed and to find out students' responses to the teaching materials being developed. This research was conducted at the Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Medan State University, and at SMAN 1 Percut Sei Tuan. The object of this study is chemistry teaching materials integrated with generic science skills in acid-base materials. The subjects in this study were acid and base materials. The type of research used is Research and Development (R&D) by giving a questionnaire to determine the feasibility of the module and to find out the response. The model used in this study is the 4-D development model which consists of 4 stages of development, namely Define, Design, Develop, and Disseminate. Based on the results of validation by media experts and material experts, an average media validation of 82.52% and material validation of 84.90% was obtained. (The student response was 95.4% with a very high response criterion, where the integrated module of generic science skills on acids and bases was appropriate for use.
