ABSTRACT

The aim of this research is to offer a model for student character on the basis of character building in teaching learning process. The sample group with 450 students represented grades 4-6 from 5 elementary schools in Jakarta. The Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) was used to analyse the data of this research. The findings confirmed that character building in teaching learning process encouraging student character was not supported. Preparation of teaching learning process, the core of teaching learning process, and the closing of teaching learning process supported character building in teaching learning process. The student love of learning and the student perseverance predicting student character were not supported in this research. The student prudence supported the student character. SEM measurement showed that the model promoted in this study is a fit model. This study gives a practical contribution by showing that character building in teaching learning process can improve the level of student noble characters by supplying a model for student character. Using this model, the students' positive characters can be improved to prevent student moral decline. This study can address the students’ positive attitudes through the model of study results.
