Exploring Materials Development of English Curriculum in Indonesia: A Content Analysis Study
This study aims to know: 1) how English materials development is constructed within the latest two curriculums in Indonesia, 2) how materials of English subject in senior high school are developed in 2006 and K13 in senior high school are in the two recent curriculums. This research employed a qualitative approach by using content analysis method. The data obtained through questionnaire, document analysis, and observation. This research’s findings showed that the development of ELT Material Development in Indonesia from School-based Curriculum and 2013 Curriculum is not followed by the changing of approaches used by teacher in classroom. Teachers tend to teach more grammar and structure separately and explicitly out of their communicative competence. Teachers’ habitual and their previous experiences influence the way of their teaching. Therefore, the government’s policy to certify teacher is very crucial in developing ELT syllabus and further for providing ‘effective teaching’ as part of curriculum development.
