Abstract

This study attempts at exploring economics teachers’ perception on the realization of Asean Economic Community (AEC) in Indonesia and identifying its implications toward the teaching of economics in high school level. Economics teachers of high school level in Jombang, East Java, Indonesia, participated as the subject of this study in 2016. Quota sampling technique was employed to choose the samples of this study in which there were 17 teachers chosen as the informants. The data were collected through in-depth interviews and observations. The obtained data were then analyzed using descriptive method. The result of this study shows that Economics teachers perceived AEC as a great opportunity and a challenging threat as well. As the implication, teachers insert AEC into teaching materials presented in the form of concrete examples of local product sold in international trading. Based on the result and discussion of this study, it is suggested that teachers develop and add AEC issue into teaching materials and activity by implementing cooperative teaching method and empathizing the importance of appreciating local products.
