Abstract

Scientific attitude is part of scientific literacy. Students can study scientific attitude by using the life story of a scientist. This study aims to describe the scientific attitude content in a narrative book that represents Stephen Hawking's life journey. The subjects of this research are documents about Stephen Hawking's life published in Indonesia. Scientific attitude that has been studied in terms of theory relevance is the object of this study. Therefore, this study is classified as a content analysis research design. The data collection techniques in this study are The content analysis technique itself is through reading and recording. The data analysis technique used in this study is through unitizing, sampling, recording, reducing, inferring, and narrating steps. The results showed that the findings of objectivity, critical mindedness, open mindedness, curiosity, respect for evidence, and honesty were spread across the three books (MBH, WPSH, and TtI) which represented Stephen Hawking's life journey. Students in science class can learn scientific attitude through real examples in everyday life. Therefore, teachers need to facilitate students with different understanding of science in order to understand the context of each event in the story. Recommendations for future research can be discussed further on the importance of reading stories on scientific literacy
