Abstract

Geography learning can be done in the classroom, outside the classroom, or in the laboratory, but in senior high school, there are not many geography laboratories. The purpose of this study was to analyze the urgency of the geography laboratory according to geography teachers at the senior high school. This research uses the descriptive qualitative method. This study describes and analyzes the geography teacher’s perception of the urgency of the geography laboratory. The data analysis technique in this study was carried out in three stages, including data reduction, data presentation, and drawing conclusions from the data obtained from the interview, observation, and documentation process. This research was conducted in the city of Surakarta because it is one of the cities that does not yet have a senior high school geography laboratory. The respondents of this study were geography teachers from senior high schools in Surakarta, which included SMAN 1 Surakarta, SMAN 3 Surakarta, SMAN 7 Surakarta, SMA Batik 1 Surkarta, and SMA MTA Surakarta. The school became the location of this research because it is the school with the highest number of students (rombel) at the senior high school level in the city of Surakarta. The results of the study indicate that all respondents stated that the school where they teach does not yet have a geography laboratory, but the existence of a geography laboratory is important as a learning tool for students to practice, experiment, and interact directly with the object being studied. In addition, the geography of a senior high school is important if it is in urban areas, because many objects and geographical phenomena are not found in urban areas. All the teachers stated that the geography laboratory was important to support the geography learning process. Furthermore, based on the results of the research, it is known that the role of the laboratory is to support learning geography and increase students’ skills in the field of geography.
