Abstract: This research aims to educate the development model of the 7 steps learning cycle using 3 kinds of multiple intelligences and metacognitive techniques that are: intelligibility, plausibility and wide-applicability. In case of secondary school year 2, the development model of 7 steps learning cycle using multiple intelligences and metacognitive techniques has steps orderly as following: to write a learning management plan perfectly and practically that can be used in each of study periods or hours by using the total of 7 plans, 3 h per each plans, specialists estimate an appropriateness that has quality in the high level, to produce a test form of critical thinking by using conceptual idea of The Watson and Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal (WGCTA), issue Y.M. in the total of 54 sections: to produce a test form of environmental preservation behavior according to the 5 levels of rating scale in the total of 40 sections. Afterwards, using the developed learning plan to experiment with secondary school students, year 2, 1st semester, for 7 weeks using pre-test and post-test learning with a learning achievement, critical thinking and environmental preservation behavior test forms. Then use the scores of learning achievement test form, critical thinking test form and environmental preservation behavior test to find its qualities and statistically analyze by using percentage, means and standard deviation (paired t-test). The research result has shown as following: the 7 steps learning cycle management plan using multiple intelligences and metacognitive techniques have an efficiency value at the rate of 0.563. The learning achievement test form has difficulty value in range of 0.31-0.75, Item-total correlation value is in range of 0.30-0.69 and reliability value is 0.92, the critical thinking test form has Item-total correlation value in range of 0.23-0.72, reliability value (KR20) is 0.84 and the environmental preservation behavior test form has Item-total correlation value in range of 0.39-0.80 and reliability value (and-Coefficient) is 0.84. Students who learn the 7 steps learning cycle management plan using multiple intelligences and metacognitive techniques have a higher learning achievement value than before class with statistically significant rate of (p<0.0001).
