Abstract

Low language and communication skills on students with deaf have an impact on their lack of confidence and lack of learning experience. The existence of peers in the learning environment is supposed to be a means of developing self-confidence of deaf students. The objective of the research is to measure the data of application of the use of peer teaching method in improving self-confidence of deaf students. This research was conducted on students of class XI SMPLB-B with seven sample people. The study used a quantitative experimental approach with the One-Group Pre-test Post-test design. The results showed an increase of confidence by 19.04%. In the hypothesis test obtained J_count> J_table (28> 2) then the null hypothesis (H0) rejected. This means that the method of peer teaching can increase students' confidence in the class XI SMPLB-B. Through the peer teaching method, the self-esteem, optimistic, objective, responsible, rational, and realistic beliefs that exist on the deaf students are increasing. Aspects of self-confidence on the deaf students develop in learning situations involving the acceptance of peers. Peer participation that has higher thinking ability and better communication, makes learning process more dynamic and deaf students can understand learning materials more quickly. Giving reinforcement and reward by teachers will reconstruct and reinforce a meaningful learning experience for deaf students. Teachers must understand and allow the deaf students to use language they agree upon without having to fixate on one of the language systems they do not understand. Teachers can also use all communication mediums i.e. speak, signal and write simultaneously (total communication).
