The Bavarian trial was a pioneer project and was described as the nearest to the guidelines of the German Basic Law 7,3 compared to others. Meanwhile the Bavarian Islamic religious instruction has been tried for nearly 15 years. It has been evaluated positively for years, nevertheless its status of a school trial is ongoing. The school trial Islamic religious instruction in Bavaria fell far short of the expectations. It has neither been introduced nationwide in Bavaria nor received the status of a regular religious instruction according to the Basic Law 7,3 analog to the Jewish or Christian religious instruction. It seems that there’s no political will in Bavaria to accept the existing Islamic associations as a religious community according to the Basic Law 7,3. The unconstitutional status of the Islamic religious instruction will intensify the distrust of the Muslims into the Bavarian state.</p> 2018-06-14T16:28:48+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## The Relationship among Learning Styles, Classroom Environment, and Academic Achievement of English Education Study Program Students in State Islamic University of Raden Fatah Palembang 2018-06-14T17:35:40+00:00 HERIZAL HERIZAL <p>This research is a correlational study with 441 students used as the population of the study. 366 students were selected as sample by using purposive sampling technique. In collecting the data, questionnaires (the learning styles and the classroom environment questionnaire) and documentation (student's GPA) were used to find the correlation and the influence among learning styles, classroom environment, and students’ academic achievement. From the results of correlational analysis between learning styles and students' academic achievement using Pearson Product Moment Correlation, it was found that the significant correlation between the two variables was not found. Then, the second correlational analysis between classroom environment and students’academic achievement showed that there was a significant correlation between the two variables with p-output = .313 which was significant at .01 level. Since the significant correlation between learning styles and students’ academic achievement were not found, the regression analysis to find the influence was not further conducted. Meanwhile, since classroom environment and students’ academic achievement were significantly correlated, the regression analysis was then conducted. Based on the regression analysis, it was found that R square was .098, which means that classroom environment influenced the students’ academic achievement with 9.8% contribution.</p> 2018-06-14T16:20:46+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Why Choose Volunteering in an Islamic Boarding School?
