Globalization progress taking place after the earthquake and Tsunami at Aceh has made it easier for new cultures to come into the society, leading to changes in social lives and characters of the students in the society. Formal Education in schools is one of the most effective ways of building the characters of individuals, so they can grow up and be better people in society. This research was carried out to find out the progress of the implementation of character values in the students’ learning process. This research is a case study for the experiment carried out by collecting data from SMP Negeri 8 and Negeri 6 Banda Aceh. The results show that teachers write down the character values being applied in the learning steps, in the students’ study plan. The implementation of these character values is executed in the classroom, by integrating them into the lesson materials. The teacher shows the various character values contained in the lesson material by using examples related to events and situations currently taking place where the student lives, by telling stories that bring up these characters, and by using the source of the study. The character values being implemented are related to the lesson materials and the religious character has been prioritized.
