Abstract
This study aims to describe the difficulty of the teacher in distinguishing the implementation of discovery and inquiry learning models in science learning and the factors that led to the scientific thinking skills of junior high school science teachers. The case study design used in this study involved 16 science junior high school teachers in East Lombok who have difficulties in distinguishing discovery and inquiry learning models as research samples. The results showed the teachers had scientific thinking difficulties, ranging from observing to identify problems/questions, formulating hypotheses, thinking deductively, and inductive thinking, distinguishing data characteristics and processing, and drawing conclusions. Therefore, teachers should learn scientific thinking skills in order to facilitate learning and trigger students' scientific thinking skills.
