Abstract

An action research aims to identify whether historical conceptual understanding can be enhanced through the Peer with Sources-Cards technique introduced in history subjects for students. The six students selected through purposive sampling technique have been used as sample in this study. Kemmis and McTaggart models, (1988) are used in this study which involved quantitative and qualitative data collection such as performance tests, interviews and observations. The findings of the study showed that there was improvement dan retention of historical conceptual understanding, as well the misconception which existed among students could be reduced through Peer with Sources-Cards technique. Students also demonstrated a positive perception of the implementation of Peer with Sources-Cards technique in the process of teaching and learning history. It is hoped that the Peer with Sources-Cards technique method should be extended to all other levels of form with different topics that enable the process of teaching and learning of history to be more fun.
