MPLEMENTATION NATIONAL CHARACTER EDUCATION AND CULTURE IN SCHOOLS
A. Principles of Character Education Culture and Nation Lickona, Schaps, and Lewis (2007) mentions the eleven principles of character education to be implemented by the education in schools, namely:A. Disseminating the main ethical values as the basis for the formation of character;2. Comprehensively describe the characters include knowledge, feelings, and good behavior;3. Using a comprehensive approach, intensive, and proactively to the development of character;4. Creating a school community have a mutual concern;5. Provide opportunities for learners to perform immoral acts;6. Provide a challenging academic curriculum and meaningful as well as respect for all learners, develops character, and helped his success;7. Encourage self-motivated learners;8. Involve all citizens to act responsibly in school character education students;9. Encourage the moral leadership of school principals, teachers and school staff;10. Involving parents and the community of learners in support of character education;11. Evaluating the success of character education, a good evaluation for schools, teachers, and students. While the principles of culture and national character education in the school include (1) does not teach but to develop character values, (2) continuity, (3) is integrated in all subjects, self-development, and school culture, (4) carrying out educationwhich enable the learners and fun. A. Do not teach but to develop character valuesCharacter values instead of ordinary materials that are not taught as subjects. Character values are internalized through the learning process. That is, the values are not used as study materials are presented as well as teach other subjects in order to achieve competence related to the concepts, theories, procedures, or any facts. Competencies to be achieved in each subject is used as a medium for developing cultural values and national character. For example, in high school biology class subjects X Semester 2, one of the Competency Standards (SK) is "4. Analyze the relationship between the components of the ecosystem, changes in matter and energy and the human role in the ecosystem balance "with the Basic Competence (KD)" 4.2 Explain the relationship between human activities with the problem of destruction / pollution of the environment and preservation of the environment ". Learning activities to achieve the SK and KD can be done for example through discussion groups that develop character values such as "religious, labor, democratic, curious, friendly / communicative, responsible, and caring environment".One thing to keep in mind that the learning activities is to achieve competence that includes cognitive, affective and psychomotor.Therefore, teachers do not need to change the SK or KD-existing but identified, mapped, and develop character values of the charge contained in the SK or KD. Teachers also do not have to carry out a special study to develop character values.The consequences of this principle of cultural values and national character are not asked in the test or exam. However, learners need to know the meaning of a value that is they grow themselves. They should not be in a position neither know nor understand the meaning of the values of these characters. 2. Continuity (ongoing)True values of the character already present in individual learners. Development of character values is a very long and sustained. Each student has a character education from parents and from the lower levels of schooling. Character education in school is a continuation of the education that has gained more than 9 years of students, from the home (parents and community) and over enrolled in primary school (SD) and High School (SMP). 3. Integrated in all subjects, self-development, and school culture. In principle, character education in school can be done through learning (integrated in every subject), through self-development (counseling services and extra-curricular activities), and through the culture of schools (school culture).
4. Educational and fun to enable learnersThis principle asserts that, education and culture of the nation's character is actually done by learners. In this case teachers implement the principle of "tut wuri handayani" in any behavior that indicated the learner. This principle states that the educational process conducted in an atmosphere of learning the cause of pleasure and not indoktrinatif. Beginning with an introduction to understanding the value that was developed, the teacher leads the students to actively formulate questions, locate and collect information from various sources, process the information already possessed, to reconstruct the character values that already exist in themselves, develop values, fostering the cultural values and character in them through a variety of learning activities, both in the classroom, at school, as well as tasks outside of school. B. Implementation of Education Culture and National CharacterCulture and national character education must be done through good planning, the appropriate approach, and effective implementation. Schools do not have to force myself to develop all the cultural values and national character, but can determine the priority of the character values that will be developed in school. For that schools need to do the analysis by considering the context of the resources available at the school (internal conditions) and environmental conditions around the school (external conditions). Further development of the values specified character is inserted into the document Education Unit Level Curriculum (SBC) is the vision, mission, and goals for the school.Some of the ideal approach to do related to character education can be described as follows:A. A holistic approachDo not add a character education program or set of programs to school, but a cultural transformation in the life of the school. One approach to implement character education is through a holistic approach that integrates character development into every aspect of school life. A holistic approach is the reform of the school because everything in school is based on relationships between and among students, teachers, staff, and community.Teacher-centered model of learning in the classroom should be changed into a democratic classroom where teachers and students held a meeting to establish unity, establish norms, and solve problems. 2. Build a community of caringCommunity care means that everyone in the school that students, teachers, and staff to treat others with kindness and respect. To achieve these objectives, it needs an active role in shaping the culture and character in both the classroom and at school. This can be done by implementing a school program where all the components work together to establish rules of behavior in achieving the desired objectives. This strategy helps students learn to build and maintain positive relationships with others.3. Teach character values through the curriculumImplementation of classroom curriculum in particular has a significant opportunity to integrate the values of the characters in the learning. For example, we will teach the material on "the role of humans in the ecosystem" to students. Students were asked what they would do if the environment around them is damaged or contaminated? Where are they taking out the trash? Why did they do that? What are the implications for their lives? With questions like that, like the character values of discipline, responsibility, teamwork will awoke to self-learners, so that will shape the character of the students to care about the environment.4. Discussion GroupDiscussions are a great way to instill the values that cool to be able to form a good character of students. With a discussion of students develop the values of honesty, thoughtful, critical thinking, tolerance, respect of friends, work, responsibility, and reflection.5. Service Learning (Service Learning)Service learning is a learning approach in which academic goals through community service. In service learning students will perform the selection, planning, and then reflect on all of their experiences. In addition to academic content, students also practice valuable skills such as organization, collaboration, and problem solving. With this service students will learn to save a virtuous character, showing respect, taking responsibility, empathy, cooperation, citizenship, and perseverance. Culture and national character education is not taught as a separate subject, but done in a way: integrated in the learning of all subjects, through self-development activities, and school culture, and supported by the daily activities at home (Figure 2).
Diagram 2 culture and national character education in school A. Integration of culture and national character education in the learningCulture and national character education is not just the responsibility of subject teachers of Religious Education or Citizenship (Civics). On learning activities, development of an integrated value of the character can be implemented in all subjects (embeded approach). Especially for subjects of Religious Education and Civic Education, for the second mission of this subject is to develop values and attitudes of the development of character values should be the main focus, so that the values of the characters must be the impact of learning (instructional effects) and also the impact of accompaniment (nurturant effects). Meanwhile, for other subjects, which formally has a special primary mission, then the values of the characters are still required to be developed to learners as a result of accompaniment (nurturant effects). The development of cultural values and national character is integrated in every subject, starting with mapping or to identify the values of the characters in the SKL subjects, objectives, SK, and KD corresponding to each subject. The teacher needs to incorporate cultural values and national character in the Syllabus and Learning Implementation Plan (RPP). Development kkarakter values through learning is done as follows:a. SK and KD Assessing the Content Standard (SI) to identify whether cultural values and national character have been included in it;b. Mapping that shows the relationship between eye SKL lesson, objective subjects, SK and KD with character values;c. Mencantumkankan cultural values and national character in the syllabus;d. Lists the values of the characters listed in the syllabus to the RPP;e. Determine the achievement indicators for the characters and develop assessment instruments;f. Implement the learners are actively learning that allows learners have the opportunity to internalize the values of character and show it in the appropriate behavior;g. Provide assistance to students who have demonstrated the internalization of values to show the behavior of the characters. Many ways to integrate these values into the character of subjects, among others: express the values contained in the SK and KD, where the direct integration of the values of the characters became an integral part of the subjects, using imagery and make comparisons with the events similar in the lives of students, transform negative things into positive values, the values expressed through discussion and brainstorming, assignment of reading a biography / life story of great men, using songs and music to integrate the values of character, dramatic play to describe the events that contains the values of character, conduct various activities such as service activities, field trips and activities to bring klub-klub/kelompok human values.
2. Integration of culture and national character education in personal developmentSelf-development is not a subject that must be cared for by teachers. Self-development aims to provide opportunities for learners to develop and express themselves in accordance with the needs, talents, and interests of each student in accordance with the conditions of the school. And self-development activities facilitated or guided by a counselor, teacher or educational staff to do in the form of extracurricular activities. Self-development activities carried out through counseling services relating to personal problems and social life, learning, and career development of students (Appendix Permendiknas No. 22 of 2006 Chapter II.B.3.a.1).The development of cultural values and national character in the development of self in high school can be done through a variety of extra curricular activities, for example:a. Spirituality (Spiritual Islam, Christian Spiritual, Spiritual Catholic, Hindu Spiritual, Spiritual Buddhist, Confucian Spiritual) - to develop religious values, tolerance, and democratic.b. Scientific group of teens - the development of values avid reader, curious, creative, recognize excellence.c. Traditional dance - the development of values patriotism, creative.d.

Sporting achievements - the development of the values of sportsmanship, hard work, discipline, respect for achievement. In program development, planning and implementation of education and character of the nation's culture can also be done through integration into the daily activities at the school through the following matters. a. School routineRoutine activities are activities performed learners constantly and consistently every time. Examples of routine activities such as ceremonies every Monday, cleaning all the rooms and the school every Friday (Friday net); compulsory reading scheduled for each class, and so forth. b. Spontaneous activitySpontaneous activity is an activity carried out directly on the spot.Spontaneous activity can be done for good behavior and attitudes and not good. This activity is done usually when it is known the good deeds that need to receive praise or a misdemeanor of the citizens of the school which should be corrected on the spot. Examples of such spontaneous praise for good deeds to his students that breaking up the fight, helping a friend who fell from the motorcycle, and so forth. For actions that should be corrected on the spot such as throwing trash out of place, not dressed neatly, and so forth.
c. ModelingModeling the behavior / attitude of citizens of the school who can be role models / examples. Examples of such ideals is never too late, well-dressed, polite-spoken, and so forth. d. ConditioningConditioning is an effort to create conditions to support school education keterlaksanaan culture and national character. Life of the school should reflect the cultural values and desired character of the nation. For example, all the rooms including laboratories, libraries, and the toilets are always clean bins provided that adequate and segregated between organic and inorganic waste; provided magazines and wall art equipment sufficient to develop creativity, and so forth. 3. Culture and national character education through the school cultureSchool culture is the atmosphere of school life where there is interaction between students, between teachers, between staff, between students with school principals, teachers and education personnel, as well as between citizens of the community school.Such interactions are bound by different rules, norms, and ethics that apply in school. Leadership, example, kindness, tolerance, hard work, discipline, social awareness, environmental awareness, a sense of nationhood, and responsibility are values which were developed in the school culture. Development of school culture is becoming an integral part of the development of school autonomy as conceptualized in the School Based Management (SBM). Thus every high school and systemic can gradually evolve into a dynamic and advanced schools. One example of a school's culture is the culture of the net. Schools are clean condition is realized through the school program conducted jointly by all members of the school (principals, teachers, students and staff), supported by parents of students and the community around the school. In every corner of the room is provided separate bins for dry waste, wet waste, and garbage can be recycled. Learners and all school residents accustomed to dispose of waste in accordance with the type of waste removal. Through the net as it expected cultural awareness to the citizens of the school environment clean is increasing. School culture is believed to be one of the aspects that influence the development of learners. If the atmosphere is full of school discipline, honesty, compassion then it will generate the output character good learners. Teachers will feel peace and comfort, which have an impact on improving classroom management. A good classroom management will affect the high academic achievement. Furthermore parents and community leaders are expected to provide reinforcement to the behavior of noble character who has developed in school to become daily activities at home and in their respective communities. C.

(Adapted from the Development of Culture and National Character - Puskur) D. AppraisalAchievement of cultural values and national character are not assessed through the test / exam. Assessment is done continuously, through anecdotal records (anecdotal records) that records created when the teacher knows the learner behavior related to the values of the characters are developed. In addition, teachers can provide a task that contains a question or events that provide opportunities for learners to demonstrate the values of the character it has. For example, learners are asked to express his attitude toward efforts to help the beggar is still strong but lazy, able to give assistance to people who miser, or other matters that are common to the things that can invite conflict in him.Based on observation, anecdotal notes, tasks, reports, and so on, teachers can give judgment on the achievement of an indicator or a character value. These considerations can be expressed in the following qualitative statements.BT: Not Visible (when the students do not show early signs of behavior that is expressed in the indicator).MT: From Visible (when the students have started to show early signs of behavior that is expressed in the indicator but not consistent).MB: Start Developing (if the students had shown any signs of behavior that is expressed in a consistent indicator and starts).MK: Become a Habit / part of the culture (if students continue to demonstrate behavior that is consistently expressed in the indicator).
