Teacher Problems in the Application of Scientific Approach to Learning during the Covid-19 Pandemic in Elementary School
The aims of this research are to analyze the problems experienced by teachers and create solutions or innovations that teachers can do in the application of scientific approaches to learning during the covid-19 pandemic in elementary schools. The research uses qualitative research methods, observation data collection techniques, interviews, and documentation. Teachers problems in the application of scientific approach to learning during the covid-19 pandemic, including: (1) based on limited time and facilities: difficulty conditioning students' time in the 5M scientific-based learning process and supervising the student's learning process directly, difficulty detecting students' understanding of the material and honesty of students in performing tasks; (2) based on limited time and cost: using lecture methods, lacking scientifically based learning variations, lack of contextual learning experience; (3) based on human resources: difficulty analyzing values and making improvements to further learning. Solutions include: (1) cooperating with principals and peers; (2) establish relationships with parents and students through school associations; (2) improving teacher competence through training in order to be more innovative and creative; (3) apply scientifically with the program "guling" teachers around in study groups with health protocols to provide contextual learning experience; (4) create contextual scientific-based LKS with local wisdom media; (5) the collection of assignments once a week by parents to school is then corrected, rated and feedback by the teacher. Scientific contextual activities during the pandemic with the program "guling" teachers around in study groups and scientific-based LKS local wisdom media.
