Abstract

As reflected in students’ scores in the preliminary study, students’ critical thinking skills are proved to be in the low-level. Hence, this study aims to identify; 1) the differences on the level of critical thinking skills between students who were taught by using Round Table and lecture method; 2) the differences on the level of critical thinking skills between students who have high, moderate, and low learning motivation; and 3) the effect of the interaction between Round Table learning model and students’ learning motivation on students’ critical thinking skills. This quasi-experimental study applied a “two-factors between subject” design and involved 35 students of class X IPS 3 of SMA Negeri 1 Cilimus as control class and 35 students of X IPS 4 as experimental class. As results, it was found that: 1) there is a difference on the level of critical thinking skills between students who were taught by using Round Table and lecture method; 2) there is a difference on the level of critical thinking skills between students who have high, moderate, and low learning motivation; and 3) there is no effect of the interaction between Round Table learning model and students’ learning motivation on students’ critical thinking skills.
