Bastiana Bastiana

Abstract


ABSTRACT: The implementation of Lesson Study provides a new perspective in the context of pedagogy in schools among teachers. This article proposes a short-term strategy that can be implemented in developing School-Based Lesson Study at school towards the establishment of learning community at Special Education. In School-Based Lesson Study, the teachers from various backgrounds have done Lesson Study activities together regardless the subjects they teach. The strategy that can be implemented by the school in the first year is to train the core staffs, to clarify the vision on child education, to have similar perception of teachers, and to create the system of lesson activities. The second and the third year is the time for evaluating the progress of the implementation of School-Based Lesson Study at Special Education based on certain characters, namely the pupils lesson and study from each other, and the teachers learn from each other through meeting in order to improve their teaching skill.

KEY WORD: School-Based Lesson Study; Learning Community; Special Education; Short-Term Strategy; Activities Together. 

ABSTRAKSI: “Strategi Jangka Pendek untuk Mengembangkan Lesson Studi Berbasis Sekolah Menuju Masyarakat Pembelajar di Sekolah Luar Biasa di Indonesia”. Implementasi Lesson Studi menyediakan perspektif baru dalam konteks pedadogis kepada guru-guru di sekolah. Artikel ini mengusulkan sebuah strategi jangka pendek yang dapat diterapkan dalam mengembangkan Lesson Studi Berbasis Sekolah menuju terbentuknya masyarakat pembelajar di SLB (Sekolah Luar Biasa). Lesson Studi Berbasis Sekolah di mana guru dari berbagai bidang studi bersama-sama melakukan kegiatan Lesson Studi tanpa melihat latar belakang bidang studi yang dipegang oleh guru. Strategi yang diterapkan pada tahun pertama yang dapat dilakukan oleh sekolah adalah membina “core staff” (tenaga inti), mengklarifikasi visi pendidikan anak, menyamakan persepsi  unsur­unsur  keahlian  guru, dan menciptakan sistem aktivitas pembelajaran. Pada tahun kedua dan ketiga, mengevaluasi tingkat keberhasilan pelaksanaan Lesson Studi Berbasis Sekolah di SLB berdasarkan karakteristik, yaitu anak-anak  saling  menyimak  dan  saling  belajar satu  sama lain, dan para guru saling belajar satu sama lain melalui pertemuan untuk mengasah keterampilan mengajar yang kreatif.

KATA KUNCI: Lesson Studi Berbasis Sekolah; Masyarakat Pembelajar; Sekolah Luar Biasa; Strategi Jangka Pendek; Aktivitas Bersama.
