Abstract
Critical thinking is very important in learning new material and relating it to student’s previously-learned material. The study aimed to (1) to improve students’ critical thinking skills through the Contextual Teaching and Learning (CTL) approach in Lesson Study activities; (2) identify learning problems in the Environmental Geography course and alternative solutions through the involvement of other lecturers in lesson study activities. This research is a Classroom Action Research which includes two cycles. The procedure used in conducting this research follows the stages of the lesson study, namely the plan, do, and see stages. The results show that: 1) The Contextual Teaching and Learning approach in Lesson Study activities is very suitable to be applied to solve and analyse problems in the surrounding environment; 2) identification of learning problems in the Environmental Geography course so that by giving cases in the Problem Based Learning model and input from other lecturers during Lesson Study can improve students’ critical thinking to solve problems.
