Abstract/Notes: Dr. Maria Montessori’s philosophy defines education as an aid to life. Given the appropriate prepared environment, young people will construct themselves and become strong, resilient, holistic humans, willing to share their gifts to benefit the common good. The developmental needs at each phase, articulated by Montessori’s Four Planes of Development serves as an essential guide to the teaching and learning. This research looks at the effects of two developmentally appropriate interventions on engagement within peer-led literature seminars in a secondary Montessori classroom. The first intervention included a low stakes way to increase proximity or a way to create a sense of ease and security at the beginning of each class such as a quick question, activity, or sharing of a quote. The second intervention aimed at preparation to help students feel more confident in participating. During the week between each seminar, students were given short lessons on literature analysis and context for the novel. Triangulated quantitative and qualitative data reveal a positive effect of student engagement due to the presence of the two interventions within the seminars. Results of the research will inform how future literature groups are conducted and will potentially benefit other secondary Montessori programs.

Abstract/Notes: Pengajaran Berbasis Sastra (LBI) didefinisikan sebagai bagian dari strategi untuk menyampaikan materi tertentu dengan menggunakan karya sastra sebagai media otentik utama. Diketahui bahwa media pembelajaran dalam pendidikan bahasa Inggris di Indonesia saat ini masih mengandalkan media buatan seperti buku. Penelitian ini menargetkan guru bahasa Inggris profesional di sekolah dasar Montessori Singaraja untuk menyelidiki bagaimana instruksi berbasis literatur (persiapan, kegiatan, penilaian) dilaksanakan termasuk tantangan yang dihadapi dari sudut pandang guru. Penelitian kualitatif dipilih sebagai pendekatan yang tepat untuk menggali dan menyelidiki fenomena pembelajaran berbasis sastra yang diterapkan di SD Montessori Singaraja. Sehubungan dengan penelitian tersebut, ditemukan bahwa guru menerapkan LBI dengan mengintegrasikan beberapa strategi pengajaran yang tepat dengan memperhatikan tujuan pembelajaran, kebutuhan siswa, dan program sekolah Montessori untuk mempromosikan 4 keterampilan dasar bahasa Inggris. Kendati demikian, para guru diidentifikasi bahwa mereka menghadapi beberapa masalah saat menjalankan LBI seperti masalah persiapan, masalah bilingual, manajemen kelas, siswa dominan dan siswa pasif, gangguan siswa, pertanyaan berulang dan masalah penilaian. Kesimpulan dari penelitian ini adalah bahwa penerapan pembelajaran berbasis sastra dilaksanakan untuk meningkatkan 4 keterampilan dasar bahasa Inggris di SD Montessori Singaraja dengan mempertimbangkan aspek penting dan guru mampu menutupi tantangan yang mereka hadapi.
