In order to overcome this problem, learning model that combines reading, construct a concept map, and cooperative learning Teams Games Tournament would applied in the biology learning. This research was Classroom Action Research, which was implemented within two cycles. The first cycle conducted in 11 meetings and the second cycle conducted in12 meetings.
