Abstract

This research is aimed to analyze (1) ) the difference of critical thinking skills and physics
understanding between students who studied through group investigation model and their
counterparts who studied through direct instruction learning model, (2) conceptual
understanding skills between students who studied through group investigation model and
their counterparts who studied through direct instruction learning model, and (3) critical
thinking skills between students who studied through group investigation model and their
counterparts who studied through direct instruction learning model
This study was an experimental study using the posttest-only control group design. The
subjects were all students in grade XI IA SMA Negeri 4 Singaraja academic year 2012/2013.
The selection of the class for this study was based on simple random sampling technique. The
data were analyzed by descriptive statistics and MANOVA. Following MANOVA, Least
Significant Difference used (LSD) to test the comparative pair average scores of each
treatment group.
The result found that (1) there is significant influence learning model of concept
comprehension variables and critical thinking together (F = 32,56; p<0,05), (2) there are
significant differences between groups PK model of group investigations and direct instruction
learning model (F = 43.019, p <0.05). (3) there are significant differences between groups KBK
model of group investigations and direct instruction learning model (F = 37,14; p<0,05). Based
on the LSD test and KBK obtained PK is achieved by students who learned using a Learning
cooperative model of type GI better than students who learn using conventional teaching
