Vocational High School (SMK) as an educational institution is a very strategic place to instill entrepreneurial spirit. Planting the spirit of entrepreneurship to be more effective must be done through all subjects. The subjects of Islamic Religious Education (PAI) and Ethics (Budi Pekerti) are one of the compulsory subjects in Vocational School and should also contribute to instilling the entrepreneurial spirit. The form of contribution from Islamic Religious Education is in the way of non-technical skills that are strictly related to attitudes and behavior or character that must be possessed by an entrepreneur or in other words Islamic Religious Education contributes to instilling the spirit or spirit of entrepreneurial spirit in students. The cultivation of entrepreneurial spirit is not necessary by adding new material but can be integrated with PAI and Ethics learning material that already exists in the curriculum. The PAI teachers are an essential and central component in determining success in integrating PAI and Ethics character subjects with the entrepreneurial world. Therefore, the PAI teachers need to have adequate insight into entrepreneurship and create a conducive learning atmosphere to instill an entrepreneurial spirit in students.</span></p> Arif Cahya Wicaksana Sukiman Sukiman Copyright (c) 2018 Sunan Kalijaga International Journal on Islamic Educational Research 2019-04-06 2019-04-06 2 2 45 64 INTEGRATING MATARAMAN CULTURE INTO ISLAMIC MANNER EDUCATION IN MI MA'ARIF PLAMPANG KULONPROGO SPECIAL PROVINCE OF YOGYAKARTA <p>Regulation of Kulon Progo Regent number 65 of 2017 concerning strengthening character education confirms that Mataraman culture must be part of the learning program at the elementary school, including the Madrasah Ibtidaiyah as an Islamic-based education.

On the other hand, the development of educational theory has an impact on the direction of progressive thinking on the pattern of education. The presence of serious attention to the golden age of children also determine an appropriate approach in the learning activities undertaken. The importance of the issue invites various views of educational leaders both from the West and the East, not least Abdurrahman An-Nahlawi and Maria Montessori. Both figures have contributed to the development of education for children from different perspectives. Based on the above, this research is directed to examine the thoughts of both into an alternative paradigm of Early Childhood Education. This research is a type of literature research with a philosophical, historical, and psychological approach. While the data are analysed using content and comparative analysis and using the inductive-deductive method in making conclusions. Based on the results of the research can be obtained: The educational concept of Abdurrahman An-Nahlawi for Early Childhood is based on the Shari'a of Islam as the perfect <em>manhaj</em> <em>Rabbani</em>. Thus, the ideal education is based on the Qur'an and Sunnah. Education becomes a means to prepare the child's life as a plenary man and realize the idealism of Islam in daily life. The concept of education Maria Montessori departs on the view of the child as a unique individual and able to construct learning independently. Thus, the need for an environment that is prepared for the development of children. Education is seen as real life for children.</p> Aghnaita Aghnaita Maemonah Maemonah Copyright (c) 2018 Sunan Kalijaga International Journal on Islamic Educational Research 2019-04-06 2019-04-06 2 2 87 115 SKILLS OF TEACHER IN TEACHING HISTORY OF ISLAMIC CULTURE: THE CASE STUDY IN MTS MA’ARIF KEJAJAR WONOSOBO <p><span>This study is used a qualitative approach and intended to describe the teacher's skills in teaching History of Islamic culture at MTs Maarif Kejajar Wonosobo, and to analyze its suitability for the implementation of learning according to the Curriculum 2013.
