Improving the English Language Achievement of SMP Negeri 4 Polewali by Integrating E-modul as a Media and Differentiated Learning as the Approach
The differentiated learning model is a teaching and learning process where students can learn the subject according to their abilities, preferences, and needs. The researchers conducted pre-observation of learning for students at SMP Negeri 4 Polewali. From the results of these observations, the researchers found that the teaching to improve the students' achievement in English failed, where their achievement was under the expectation of the National Education Standard. The failure of students' learning achievement is caused by a less attractive learning approach and the selection of learning media that does not motivate students to learn English in class. The problem statement is that student learning achievement is very low in learning media and approaches. The research objectives are to determine whether an E-learning module integrated with differentiated learning can improve learning achievement, the steps of learning English using an E-module integrated with differentiated learning and the students' perceptions of learning by using e-modules and differentiated learning.
