Level of Knowledge Construction in Elementary School Students: Lesson Plan Analysis

Ummi Nur Laila Sulistyani


This article discusses about one of 21st century learning skills, which is knowledge construction. To be able to achieve the 21st CLD goals, good lesson plans are needed. This research is done by doing lesson plan analysis from the lesson plan made by the teacher. There were six lesson plans which were analyzed for this research. The lesson plan analysis is intended to improve the teachers’ lesson plan with reference to the rubric of knowledge construction designed in 21st CLD. The analysis was conducted to determine whether the lesson plan has met five levels of knowledge construction rubric or not. From the six lesson plans analyzed, three lesson plans achieved level five of knowledge construction, two lesson plan achieved level four and one lesson plan stayed in level one of knowledge construction.
