Researching is a splendid activity. It stimulates your critical thinking to work and create new ideas. It’s a dynamic activity. Once you start it you will continue it with another amazing finding.

My research in Deakin University is on “Critical Thinking Based Instruction at Australian Primary Schools: Sociolinguistic Perspective”

This is the abstract:

ABSTRACT

This study is to portray classroom interaction in the critical thinking based instruction at primary schools. Primary schools in Australia are considered to develop critical thinking based instruction as reported in some studies. Therefore the teacher and student interaction is investigated to see the features and construct of effective classroom interaction effective for developing students’ critical thinking.

The kind of qualitative method chosen is exploratory case study. It aims at carefully revealing the development of student’s critical thinking triggered by teacher and student interaction.

The result of this study shows that the instruction is characterized by inquiry based learning, project-based learning, problem-based learning, Socratic questioning, within integrated learning method and added by educational values such as character building and the implementation of social justice education. The finding also shows the politeness strategies portrayed in the teachers’ modeling the ‘respect’ in the classroom interaction. Teacher plays a significant role for accurate modelling so that in critical thinking based instruction the education value become the main concern. Even from the earlier stage, shaping good identity is done though story telling story to transmit the moral in social and humanity issues. Through the integrated learning process students can make analysis of the education values they learnt in their daily life.

Keywords: critical thinking, teacher-student interaction, politeness strategies, respect.

ABSTRAK

Penelitian ini memotret interaksi dalam kelas berbasis berpikir kritis di sekolah dasar. Sekolah dasar di Australia mengembangkan pengajaran berbasis berpikir kritis sebagaimana dilaporkan dari beberapa hasil penelitian. Oleh karenanya interaksi antara guru dan siwa dicermati untuk memahami karakteristik dan konstruk interaksi yang efektif dalam mengembangkan kemampuan berpikir kritis siswa.

Jenis metode penelitian yaitu kualitatif dengan rancangan studi kasus eksploratoris. Tujuannya yaitu merunut perkembangan berikir kritis siswa yang didorong interaksi guru dan siswa.

Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa pengajaran dicirikan penerapan inquiry-based learning, project-based learning, problem-based learning, Socratic questioning, dalam konteks pembelajaran integratif yang dilengkapi nilai-nilai pendidikan untuk pembentukan akhlak serta implementasi prinsip pendidikan berkeadilan sosial. Temuan penelitian juga menunjukkan strategi kesantunan dalam pemodelan guru pada konsep ‘hormat’ dalam interaksi kelas. Guru berperan penting untuk memberikan model akurat agar dalam pembelajaran berbasis berpikir kritis nilai-nilai pendidikan menjadi perhatian utama. Bahkan sejak tingkat pendidikan dini, pembetukan identitas mulia diterapkan melalui dongeng di kelas untuk pematangan moral melalui isu-isu kemasyarakatan dan kemanusiaan. Melalui proses pembelajaran integratif, siswa dapat menganalisa nilai-nilai pendidikan yang diperoleh dari kehidupannya sehari-hari.

Kata-kata kunci: berpikir kritis, interaksi guru-siswa, strategi kesantunan, hormat.
