In the process of learning teacher should be able to integrate values and teachings that are rooted from local culture. Javanese cultural elements containing many philosophies and noble values should be included in the process of learning, especially those with Javanese social-cultural backgrounds. Not only in the material, teachers can also integrate Javanese cultural elements into learning activities, combined with learning methods, used as props and learning media. If such a thing can be applied then students can absorb more knowledge about the elements of local culture (Java). Integrating the value of Javanese culture is aimed at producing graduates who are not only experts in general knowledge but also have good cultural knowledge. In addition, it also can shape attitudes and characters in accordance with the noble values of Javanese culture.
