Abstract


One of the important 21st-century competencies that should be empowered is logical-thinking ability. Logical-thinking ability is one of the aspects in domain cognitive science that could not be implemented effectively in teaching and learning in the class. Then, this study was aimed to know the effectiveness of generative learning model to enhance students' logical-thinking ability. This research was also conducted by using a quasi-experimental study with pretest-posttest non-equivalent control group design. The sample was taken by using simple random sampling technique. The research involved two classes which were 67 participants consist of 34 students in Class VIII.9 as an experimental group and 33 students in Class VIII.7 as a control group. The researcher used the instruments of logical-thinking ability, they were multiple choice tests with five alternative answers that have been tested for its validity and reliability. The used analysis of data is t-test by SPSS 21. The result obtained t-count value is 2.44, t-table on significant level 0.05 is 1.99, and p-value = 0.017 (p <0.05). It can be concluded that the t-count > t-table, so H0 refused. This also indicates that the application of generative learning models provides a significant impact on students' logical-thinking ability.
