This study will provide an alternative strategy that can be done to improve problem solving skills, on children in the context of building the disaster resilience which are integrated in the learning process of science through community learning strategy. Qualitative and psychosocial research ethnography was conducted on 34 students in the District of the West Coast as the area with the most potential to experience the devastating earthquake and tsunami. Data were obtained using a strategy of focused group discussions and depth interviews with elements of the school community which are teachers, and parents. The purpose of the involvement of the school community was to get the data in understanding the resilience of students. The research proved that resilience is at the levels which are still low and this condition further provide recommendations related to alternative strategies for the development of higher level thinking skills for students in disaster prone areas.

Penelitian ini akan memberikan strategi alternatif yang dapat dilakukan untuk meningkatkan ketrampilan memecahkan masalah (problem solving), pada anak-anak dalam konteks membangun resiliensi bencana (disaster resilience) yang terintegrasi dalam proses pembelajaran sains melalui strategi learning community. Penelitian kualitatif dengan tipe psikososial etnografi ini dilakukan terhadap 34 orang siswa di Kabupaten Pesisir Barat sebagai daerah yang paling potensial mengalami bencana gempa bumi dan tsunami. Data penelitian diperoleh menggunakan strategi focused group discussion dan depth interview terhadap unsur komunitas sekolah yaitu guru, dan orang tua. Tujuan dari terlibatnya komunitas sekolah untuk mendapatkan data dalam memahami resilience siswa. Hasil penelitian membuktikan bahwa resilience berada pada taraf yang masih rendah dan kondisi ini selanjutnya memberikan rekomendasi terkait strategi alternatif untuk pengembangan keterampilan berpikir tingkat tinggi bagi siswa di daerah rawan bencana.

Kata kunci: keterampilan problem solving, disaster resilience, siswa sekolah dasar, komunitas sekolah
