The Thematic Real Work Lecture (KKN) organized by the Department of Indonesian Literature (JSI), State University of Malang (UM) 2020 aims to develop a spirit of devotion and student leadership and provide opportunities for students to apply learning experiences. Thematic KKN is different from UM Regular KKN. Thematic KKN only makes products, then these products are given to community groups, based on age, village institutions, community organizational groups, and community leaders in general. Group 11 of JSI Thematic KKN targets reading books for Elementary School (SD) students with the theme Character Education (29 / 5-7 / 7).
This Thematic KKN is very special, because students are given experience in accordance with their fields. It is not surprising that many of the products produced by the JSI UM Thematic KKN group are book products. This product will be given to the KKN target as a form of student service. For example, the PBSID 11 group produced several books to be given to SD Islam Mohammad Hatta. The PBSID 11 group will donate 5 books, a collection of interesting short stories and the requirements for character education, namely helping, honesty, hard work and never giving up, being willing to sacrifice, and tolerance.
The reason for the JSI KKN 11 Group's theme of character education is to form a moral and moral spirit from an early age in order to lead to a better life. Group 11 JSI Community Service made five reading books with the theme Character Education for Elementary School students. "The reason our group carries this theme is because we want to revive elementary students' reading interest and instill interesting character education through reading books in the form of short stories," said the Head of Group 11 of JSI KKN. The five reading book products contain collections of short stories (short stories) and in the short stories there is a character education mandate that elementary school students can learn. "Our hope is that through this book it can build students' personal character and after reading this book students can apply it in the school environment, family and community," he concluded.
