Research data shows an increase of 77.21% in character. In learning outcomes, there is an increase in classical mastery of 87.5% and the average of 78.26. The conclusion of this research is that the selection of learning model adapted to material characteristics and conditions of the students, with facilitation to continue syntopical reading to build characters make a maximal learning outcomes.
