The evaluation of the textbook concern was conducted at macro level on the basis of eleven criteria. Both quantitative and qualitative data were obtained through student questionnaires administered to 94 students and interviews with 4 teachers. The results revealed that both teachers and students felt negative about some of the characteristics of the textbook. It was found that the reading passages needed to be simplified in terms of vocabulary load and the grammar needed to be presented in the details. It also indicated that the listening activities were not supported by audio recordings that should have been included in the textbook. Moreover, the students expected the book to include multiple choice exercises. It implies that some aspects of the textbook need to be revised and the audio recordings must be included to support the listening activities. On the other hand, one of the strengths of the textbook was that the activities in the textbook involved opportunities that encourage students’ creativity, interest, and curiousity.</p> Lina Herlina Copyright (c) 2022 Literate: International Journal of Social Science and Humanities Fri, 03 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0700 Increasing the Role of Technology in Functions of Law as a Tool of Social Engineering <p><em>The impact of technological advances in law is overwhelming, on one side the law needs to predict and anticipate changes in human behavior due to the use of technology, while on the other side the law also needs to utilize technology as a means that can be used to achieve the aims and objectives of the law. The problem is that law and technology do not originate from the same conception. So that maximizing the role of technology to accelerate the occurrence of social engineering in order that changes that occur in society can be controlled and run in an orderly manner, to create the national goals of a country is a serious challenge. Increasing the role of technology in the development of the concept of law as a tool of social engineering is carried out by realizing the convergence of technology and law in various fields of law, both in the normative and practical dimensions. </em></p> CSA Teddy Lesmana Copyright (c) 2022 Literate: International Journal of Social Science and Humanities Sun, 26 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0700 The Effect Of The Quiz Team Method On Student Learning Outcomes In Mathematics Lessons <p>This study aims to increase students' learning activities and achievement by applying the Quiz Team learning method in learning mathematics with fractions.
