Abstract

This paper presents the design of a contextual science book that can be used in the learning to develop the generic skills of junior high school students. Method: The design of contextual science book begins with literature studies, and field studies related science books used in Junior High Schools in Demak Regency, Central Java, Indonesia. The literature studies are carried out by; (1) analyzing core competencies and basic competencies, (2) analyzing 7th grade science books, (3) analyzing generic skills developed in 7th grade science books, and (4) analyzing research findings related to science books and generic skills. Result: Contextual science book are textbook that are based on a contextual approach. The product developed in this study is a science book model for 7th grade Junior High School students which use a contextual approach to develop generic skills. Conclusion: The contextual science book can develop generic skills are collaborative, communicative, creative, critical thinking, information and technology, numeric skills, problem solving, self-management, and investigating. To facilitate the development of these generic skills, contextual science book model are designed by integrating aspects of constructivism, inquiry, questioning, learning community, modelling, reflection, and authentic assessment.
