Pengaruh Metode Group Investigation terhadap Hasil Belajar Siswa pada Muatan Materi PPKn di Kelas V SDN 2 Kalijaga
One of the factors that impact the unsuccessfulness of studying PPKn in schools is the use of a learning model that is still less innovative. Teachers tend to use the old method that is teaching the materials using lectures, questions and answers, then giving the student assignments. As a result, students feel bored, passive, less interested in learning, which decrease students’ learning outcomes. Group Investigation can be used as an alternative that will encourage students to be more active in learning with groups. This study aims to determine the effect of Group Investigation on students’ learning outcomes in studying PPKn in the fifth grade student at SDN 2 Kalijaga academic year 2020/2021. This research is experimental research with Quasi Experimental Design type Nonequivalent Control Group Design.
