Abstract


The importance of critical thinking has triggered many educators to develop this ability on their students. This research aim was to explore the role of teachers’ strategies in fostering students’ metacognitive strategies on their critical thinking abilities. 135 students and 5 teachers from 5 different high school in Sumedang district were involved in this research. Teachers’ strategies were explored through observation whereas students’ critical thinking abilities were explored through questionnaire. Observations showed that each teacher fostered students’ metacognitive strategies differently. Kruskal-Wallis Test showed there is significant difference between students’ critical thinking abilities based on their teachers’ strategies. It implies the effect of teachers’ strategies to students’ critical thinking abilities. The more teachers foster their students’ metacognitive strategies, the higher their students’ critical thinking abilities. By means, there is possibility to develop students’ critical thinking ability through their metacognitive strategy.
