Indonesian YouTube Video Clip for Teaching Character Values in English Classes in High Schools

Mirjam Anugerahwati

Abstract


In Indonesia, where English still has the status of a foreign language, many students see English as just one more subject to pass in order for them to proceed to the next level of education. In the current curriculum, the 2013 Curriculum, English, as are the other subjects, is given the “burden” of building the character values as mentioned in the 2nd Core Competence (KI 2). Some of the values are confidence, honesty, discipline, and responsibility. As is delineated in the Curriculum, the characters should be built through “indirect teaching”; based on that guidelines, the researcher then suggests the use of YouTube video clips about Indonesia, which has a two-fold function: to attract students’ interest, and to inculcate noble characters in the students. Videos on “Wondeful Indonesia” and historical events can be very beneficial to teach English to secondary school students. This paper explores the practical ways to use YouTube clips in teaching several text types to secondary school students.
