Afriana Afriana, Emil Eka Putra

Abstract

This study focuses on character education that is aimed at helping learners to become people who have better behaviour. The study used a qualitative descriptive method to briefly examine character education in English learning process in 9th grade classes of National Junior High School (SMPN) which are in SMPN 1, SMPN 3, and SMPN 5 Batam. The results of this study indicate that the character education planning in the learning process undertaken by the teacher included preparing the syllabus, RPP (Lesson Plan) which had already been integrated with the values ??of character education and reading references about the material to be taught that had been previously written in RPP. The teachers were free to apply kinds of learning method because every teacher had different tricks and strategies. The learning process involved not only active teachers but also active students. The role of teachers in learning was not only as a speaker but also as a facilitator and motivator for students. Most teachers of SMPN in Batam implemented lecture and question and answer method. The lecture method that is often used in every meeting made the students felt bored because there was no variation in the learning process. Then, the question and answer method were also used by the teacher to measure the level of students' understanding on the presented material. The evaluation system was based on the value of semester test results, midterm exam, daily test, and daily observation of each student. The values ??included in the report were three aspects: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor.
