Abstract

Character education has a higher meaning because it is not only related to the problem right wrong but how to instill habits about various good behaviors in life, so that children have high awareness and understanding. This study aims: (1) the meaning contained in local wisdom and (2) Application of local wisdom-based character education in elementary school education. Data collection techniques were carried out by (1) interviews, (2) observation, (3) documentation. Research results: (1) the meaning contained in local wisdom. The details of Sunan Gunung Jati generally contain broad and complex meanings, so that they can be useful, not only for their children and offspring, but also for the wider community. Basically there are six meanings contained in the recitations of Sunan Gunung Jati, namely advice on good deeds, consistency in carrying out the teachings of Islam, subtle and hard reprimands, obeying agreed rules, upholding the values of Islamic teachings, and social sanctions. (2) the application of character education based on local wisdom based on the character values contained in one of the local cultures of Cirebon City. The local cultural wisdom of the Cirebon community comes from Sunan Gunung Jati, especially the petitih Sunana Gunung Jati, which contains character values, namely devotion and belief, discipline, wisdom and policy, politeness and manners and social life.
