Abstract

One type of method that becomes interest in today learning is the method that can bring the students in inquiry and discovery activities. Its practice then is adjusted where it is being implemented. To investigate how this method is applied in the classroom, a survey study with mixed method design was conducted. Particularly, this study is aimed to describe how students perceive the discovery learning practice and how far it is being applied in the classroom. Students who belong to the social science class in their final year of senior high school in SMAN 10 Kota Jambi along with their English teacher who applies discovery learning were participated in this study. A close-ended questionnaire with the focus of discovery learning activities was delivered to a total of 77 students. To gain further explanation about discovery learning practice, the teacher was interviewed through a face to face interview. The result shows that both the students and the teacher are aware of discovery learning activities. However, this method is not fully applied and still in the level of moderately used in the classroom. Among all the activities in discovery learning practice, only activities in introduction phase were highly applied. In the core activities that consist of 6 stages of discovery learning, only activities in generalization stage were highly applied while the activities in other stages were moderately and lowly applied. Moreover, the activities in close phase is also categorized as moderately applied in the classroom. Based on the result, the teacher needs to improve the teaching practice especially when applying discovery learning in the classroom.
