Abstract

Problem-based learning is used to develop high order thinking skills, in problem-oriented situations, including how to learn. Problem-based learning is a learning model dependent on the rule that issues can be utilized as a beginning stage to get or coordinate new information. This study aimed at determining the effect of problem based learning models with student worksheets on students' high order thinking skills on the digestive system concept. In this study problem solving steps were developed in a student worksheets. This student worksheets contains questions that can develop students' thinking skills, from low-order thinking to high-order thinking. The data of the test results were analysed by using the t-test, at a significance level of 0.05. This study aims to identify the impact of problem-based learning (PBL) to students’ higher-order thinking skill. The notion of higher-order thinking is designed based on Bloom’s taxonomy, and implemented into students’ worksheet particularly on the topic of digestive system concept. 64 students from two science classes at a secondary high school in South Tangerang participated in this experimental study. Findings of the study revealed that problem-based learning models with student worksheets had a significant effect on students' high order thinking skills on the digestive system concept.
