Abstract

Learning physics in senior high school (SMA) not only about concepts and principles, but also processes and attitudes. So it is needed learning model that can provide a conducive process for students to do it creatively. This research aim to test the project-based learning (PjBL) and conventional learning (CL) in achieving students’ creative thinking and character. This research utilized the pre-test post-test control group design. The populations are 18 classes of grade X SMA (625 students) from three SMAs in Buleleng Bali, i.e. SMA 1 Singaraja, SMA 2 Singaraja, and SMA 1 Busungbiu. In each SMA was chosen 2 classes each as PjBL and CL groups which were selected by random assignment. So the samples were 214 students (or 34% of the population). The students’ creative thinking was collected by test and their character by questionnaire. To analyse the data, the MANCOVA statistics was used. The results showed that the students’ creative thinking and character in the PjBL group were higher than the CL group. The PjBL more excellence than the CL in achieving creative thinking and character for the students in learning physics. Learning physics is better if it uses the PjBL in achieving creative thinking and good character.
