Environmental-Based Education Through Character Tour: New Method In Teaching Speaking For Vocational School (Classroom Ideas)

Dwi Rosita Sari


Based on the results of previous research Speaking in English learning is used as an indicator of the success of learning, so that students who are able to speak English are considered as students who master English. Therefore, speaking should be attempted to be an interesting learning so that the learning objectives can be achieved. Based on the results of previous research, the results of discussions with experts, peers, stakeholders, and the results of observations and interviews, obtained data required the implementation of a model that can motivate and encourage students to be able to speak in English more actively. On the other hand, the decline of young generation characters that occur on average at the age of vocational students is very clear. This is evidenced by the many cases of rape and sexual harassment perpetrators of young people aged 16-20 years. Taking into account these needs, researchers will conduct a learning model study through an Eco-Based Tour of Environmental-Based Educational Characteristics of a learning model that emphasizes an environmental tour process that contains a description of characters in English as a speaking topic. This idea is aimed to: (1) show the implementation of the Character Tour in Teaching Speaking, (2) To analyze the character that raise up after the implementation of the Character Tour to students.
