This research investigates the implementation of 2013 Curriculum by the English

teachers at SMP kota Jambi. There are three important points that the teachers should pay
attention to 2013 Curriculum. They are the preparation of the lesson plan, the implementation of
the scientific approach and the assessment of students’ learning.
Employing descriptive qualitative, the research relies on data collected through
interview, observation and documentation. The recorded interview was transcribed and analyzed
to find out the preparation of the lesson plan and the assessment of students’ progress. The
observation was conducted through video recorder to see the implementation of scientific
approach by the English teachers in the classroom. The documentation was analyzed to see the
content of lesson plan after the preparation is made by the English teachers. The findings reveal
three main issues. First, the preparation of the lesson plan has involved all of the English teachers
when they attended MGMP (Musyawarah Guru Mata Pelajaran). They designed the lesson plans
before the new semester or new academic year. They downloaded the latest version of lesson
plan as a sample and then adjust to the characteristic of the school. Supervisor also gave assistant
to the teachers in designing and revising the lesson plan. There were also barriers when the
teachers prepared the lesson plan. In the previous version of lesson plan, teachers should assess
students’ religion values and attitude (KI1 and KI2). The instruments to assess the students’
religion values (KI 1) and students’ attitude value (KI 2) were burdensome to them. But for the
new version, KI 1 and KI 2 were assessed by religion and PKN teacher. The participants only
focused on KI 3 and KI 4. Second, the implementation of scientific approach in the classroom
was not totally carried out. Although the teachers applied the scientific approach (observing,
questioning, experimenting, associating and presenting/communicating) in teaching and learning
process, but the observation showed that some of the teachers did not completely implement it.
Third, there were four types of assessment in K13: project; portfolio; written and oral
assessment. Most of the teachers did not apply project and portfolio assessment to assess
students’ progress. Written assessment was obtained from daily test, mid test and final test. Oral
assessment was obtained from presentation, dialogue or conversations. Meanwhile, KI 1 and KI
2 were assessed by the moral and religion teacher and collaborate with counseling teachers.
Suggestion and recommendation for the next researcher as well as the English teachers are also
