The report on the results of the national exam on the website of the ministry of education and culture shows that the percentage of students who answered correctly on the matter of animal tissue and organ material at SMA Negeri 4 Pekalongan in 2019 was 22.62%, in 2018 it was 29.79%, in 2017 it was 32, 56%, and in 2016 it was 59.86%. The data shows a decrease every year and is still relatively low when compared to other materials. Preliminary observation data conducted on 70 students using questionnaires showed that 85.71% of students experienced problems with online learning and 90% of students felt bored with online learning. In addition, data also obtained that 67.14% of students find it difficult to learn biology, 55.71% of students feel that the teaching materials used are not sufficient for learning, and 41.42% of students feel that the teaching materials used are not interesting. Preliminary interview data with biology teachers show that the material that is difficult to teach in online learning is material that contains practical activities. Animal tissues and organs material is included as material for practical activities. This study aims to develop an atlas of vertebrate tissues as a supplement to teaching materials that have been tested for feasibility (materials, media, and language) and can improve students' self-regulated learning in senior high school. The results showed that the vertebrate tissue atlas as a supplement for teaching materials that were developed met the eligibility standards according to the material expert validator, media expert validator, biology teacher, and the responses of 12 students with very decent criteria. In addition, the vertebrate tissues atlas as a supplement to teaching materials can also improve students' self-regulated learning in high school. This is indicated by the percentage of students with high N-gain criteria of 54%, moderate criteria of 4%, and low criteria of 40%.
