APPLICATION OF WINDOWS SHOPPING IN DIFFERENTIATED LEARNING TO IMPROVE STUDENTS' MATHEMATICS LEARNING OUTCOMES IN TERMS OF LEARNING STYLES
JMPA (Jurnal Manajemen Pendidikan Al-Multazam)
Education is expected to change the behavior of students, as a result of interaction with the environment in meeting their needs. These changes must be experienced directly by students, without limiting the characteristics contained in students. Learning that facilitates students by paying attention to the characteristics of students is known as differentiated learning. Based on the results of observations at UPT SMPN 1 Pagelaran Utara, the teacher's understanding of differentiated learning was
... only limited to the group discussion process by selecting heterogeneous group members. Whereas the process of discussion and evaluation of results is not accompanied by activities or facilities that are in accordance with the characteristics of students. The teacher's lack of understanding results in low student learning outcomes. Based on the problems above, teachers can improve differentiated learning which is carried out by applying the windows shopping method with group selection based on learning styles. Data collection techniques used in this research are learning style questionnaires, observations, and tests. Based on the results of the research and discussion that has been carried out in cycle I and cycle II, the learning outcomes of students with visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning styles have increased. Where students with auditory learning styles experience greater improvement than visual and kinesthetic learning styles. So it can be concluded that the application of the windows shopping method to differentiated learning in terms of the learning styles of students can improve the mathematics learning outcomes of class VII-1 UPT SMPN 1 north Pagelaran.
