Abstract
East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) province in Indonesia, is susceptible to the threat of natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, landslides, drought, whirlwinds, and fires. This means that all districts in the province are categorized as a disaster-prone area. The results of the preliminary study found that disaster hazards such as floods and whirlwinds were serious threats especially for the students of Rehoboth Christian Elementary School in Central Kupang Sub District, Kupang District. This article aimed to analyze the integration of disaster risk reduction materials into school learning during the Covid-19 pandemic at Rehoboth Christian School. This research used a case study approach and the data were collected using the in-depth interview technique and focus group discussion. The informants in this study were the teachers. The result showed that disaster information literacy at Rehoboth Christian School was implemented by integrating disaster topics, especially floods, and whirlwinds into the teacher’s lesson plans. It found also that the school’s strategy for learning during the Covid-19 pandemic was changing the learning method according to the demands of the new normal era. All learning processes were carried out using the home visit method. Teachers proactively visited students’ houses to conduct short lessons and distribute learning materials.
