Abstract
The background of this study is the importance of establishing and understanding the behavior of learners in the learning invites students to learn resources directly. Mangrove forests one of which can be used as a learning resource. The purpose of this study was to determine the differences in test understanding the concept of class experiments that utilize mangrove forests as a source of learning and classroom control who use media visual as a learning resource in the control class. To determine differences in the level of environmental awareness in the experimental class with a grade control. And to determine the relationship between understanding the concepts and environmental awareness in the experimental class and control class. In this study, the method used is quasi-experimental. This research was conducted in SMA Negeri 1 Indramayu in April 2016. The research subject is students of class XI IPS 1 and XI IPS 2 SMA Negeri 1 Indramayu. The instrument used was the result of tests pretest and posttest and questionnaires understanding of the concept of environmental concern. Data were analyzed using statistical methods 't' test (different test), to test the hypothesis of the research carried out consultations on a distribution table "t" at the 5% significance level and regression test to know the relationship between the understanding of concepts and environmental awareness variable. The results showed that there are differences in understanding of the concept test experimental class and control class. By hypothesis data using statistical t-test result t = 4.05 > table = 1.66. Then H0 was rejected and Ha was accepted which means that there were differences in the test results of the experimental class understanding of concepts that utilize mangrove forests as a source of learning and a control class that uses visual media. There are differences in the level of environmental awareness among experimental class control class by a margin of 1.8% difference, and also there is a relationship between the understanding of concepts and environmental awareness with correlation value of 20,4% in the experimental group and 8,8% in the control class. The implications of this study contribute as a source of learning directly using the contextual environment and invites students to learn directly.
