Abstract

This study aims at finding out the effectiveness of a cooperative teaching method of Teams Games Tournament (TGT) to the improvement of the chemistry teaching quality in junior high schools (SMP). The effectiveness is in the terms of (a) learning achievement improvement, (b) increased motivation to learn, and (c) increases in activities. This research was experimental research. The population of this study was the eighth-grade students of SMP Negeri 14 Yogyakarta at the first semester. Research samples were students who were divided in two classes, namely the experiment class (A) and the control class (B) selected by using purposive sampling. Data obtained in this study were (a) data of students’ prior knowledge of chemistry and chemistry learning achievement analyzed using covariance analysis (anakova), (b) data on students’ chemistry learning motivation analyzed using t-test, and (c) learners’ activity data analyzed descriptively. The results of Covariance research showed that there were significant differences in students’ learning achievement of chemistry from the experiment class and the control class when the chemistry initial knowledge of the students were statistically controlled (to = 6.857; p = 0.011). The analysis results of the t-test of different subjects showed no significant difference in motivation to learn chemistry between the students taking the lesson using the cooperative teaching method of TGT type and the students taking the class using varied presentation methods (to = 1.498: p = 0.139). The results of the t-test analysis of similar subjects showed that there were significant differences in the chemistry learning motivation of students before and after following the teaching using the cooperative teaching method of the TGT type (to = -3.827; p = 0.001). The results of this study showed that the cooperative teaching method of TGT type was more effective in improving students' learning achievement, increasing motivation to learn chemistry and improving the students’ activities in the teaching process.
