Rusdiah Agustina, Ahmad Adib, Andre Noevi Rahmanto


Good communication between teachers and students can build a pleasant learning atmosphere so that it can provide motivation for students to achieve. The Sanggar Anak Alam is a school without rules, to help the learning activities run between the facilitators making an agreement as a substitute for the rules based on an agreement, the learning process runs with understanding, awareness and responsibility. The facilitator builds communicative actions towards students, namely making communication openly, each individual can give opinions or rebuttals to get intersubjective recognition oriented to understanding and reaching consensus (agreement) together according to Habermas's perspective. The research method is qualitative with a case study approach. The results of this study are the open communication between the facilitator and the students with the facilitator placing themselves on par with students and conducting dialogue to reach an understanding towards mutual agreement so as to provide comfort in the learning process and motivate students to excel.
