Abstract
Javanese society has many cultural events, like Sekaten, Suran, Bakdan, and Sadranan. In each cultural event may have two or threeworldviews that are able to be used as media for humanizing the students.A worldview is the set of beliefs about fundamental aspects of reality that ground and influence all one's perceiving, thinking, knowing, and doing. Humanizing is a process of making the member of society understanding and doing benefit values. Based on the ethnography study done in Boyolali Central Java 2017, Sadranan, as a focus of this article, has three worldviews, namely: honor, togetherness, and alms/charity. Honor is meant to respect the departed spirit: parents, grandfather and ma by praying to God. Togetherness is realized bybesikmakam(cleaning the grass in the tomb) kondangan(praying together). Alms/charity is performed by bringing tenong(a place contains foods) to the tomb then given to the others. The three worldviews should be taught to the students as successors of acknowledged culture.Javanese society has many cultural events, like Sekaten, Suran, Bakdan, and Sadranan.
