Curriculum 2013 is very supportive to face the challenges of learning challenges
in the 21st century. One of the problems that exist in class XI MIPA 5 SMAN 2
Malang is that learning in class still using conventional methods or lectures that
make student learning outcomes less and students can not practice critical
thinking skills ,As this critical thinking skill is one of the demands of skills that
must be mastered in the 21st century. One alternative model of learning that is
suitable for students is a model of cooperative learning type Think Pair Share

of XI MIPA 5 SMAN 2 Malang who consist of 32 students.The study was
conducted on the respiratory system material in cycle I and excretion system in
humans on cycle II. Data collection techniques used in the form of observations
and tests. The students’ critical thinking skills are measured using the problem
with the critical thinking skill indicator which is carried out at the end of the
cycle, while the students' learning outcomes are measured through the observation
result for the psychomotor domain and the test at the end of the cycle for the
cognitive domain.
The results showed that students' critical thinking skills experienced an
increase in cycle I and cycle II of 17.5%. Student learning outcomes include 2
domains of cognitive and psychomotor domains. Cognitive domain has increased

by 35.37% while in the psychomotor domains has increased 59,35%. After the
researchers conducted this research, as for the suggestion that it is necessary to
have a better classroom management for each student is active as a whole when
the learning process takes place so that students who are less understanding of the
subject matter can understand and understand the material being taught. In
