Teaching material plays an important role in teaching and learning instruction. Local context learning material experiences students to grasp and understand their potential culture and social as well as their local natural resources. However, not many teachers particularly Junior Secondary School (JSS) teachers use the local context learning material for their subject of study. Therefore, it is useful to use the natural local context material for integrated teaching and learning instruction for certain subject of study. This study aims to develop an integrated teaching and learning instruction model with a combination of five teaching subjects (Science, Indonesian Language, Social Science, Art Culture, and Craft) in JSS using local context as a theme of subject learning material. Need analysis is based on the results of the questionnaire, FGD, and interview to get the data before setting up a model, then tried out with JSS teachers. This model has proved and changed the method and technique of instructional learning which affects the improvement of students competence and understanding their environment.
