This class  Action Research is aimed at improving students' learning outcomes in the writing of students of class VII E SMP Negeri 2 Trenggalek. From the results of previous writing tests obtained data that only 46% of students who got score above KKM. This is caused by various things, namely; they are less able to explore topics, ideas are less clear, not well ordered sentences and some errors in the use of vocabulary, grammar and spelling. Another problem faced is the low motivation of learners in doing the task of writing. Likewise learning activities also less varied. Knowing that how important this writing skill is, this problem needs to be solved immediately. Mega De Shop is a learning technique that can facilitate learners to be more active in finding vocabulary as a basic writing because Mega De Shop is a technique by using the image media combined with the learning steps of Two Stay Two Stray model which has been modified.

Abstract

This study attempts to investigate the correlation between writing anxiety and writing performance. Writing is a productive skill in which English learners are required to master it well because they will have to write many English compositions during their study. Out of fifty students who registered in Writing II course only nineteen students participated in this study because their writing score is ≥ 80.  The data was analyzed by using SPPS version 17.0 to find the correlation between writing anxiety and writing performance. The results of this study show r is -587 and significant at the level 0.05.  It means that there was significant correlation between students’ writing anxiety and writing performance; therefore the alternative hypothesis is accepted.  Furthermore, it reveals that writing anxiety was negatively correlated with students’ writing performance. In other words, when students felt anxious, they tend to produce poor compositions. In contrast, when their anxiety is low, they will likely to produce good piece of writing.

Abstract

Being able to read in English is very important as it is known that success in reading is the most necessary because it is a basic tool of education. Consequently, the concern of English learning is no longer on the acquisition of language components i.e. grammar, vocabulary, and sound system in isolation. Rather, it is targeted at the students learning and analyzing the whole text, at how it is constructed to achieve its purpose (Carrell, 1996: 26). The design of this research is a classroom action research with cycle model since this research is planned to improve the students’ Vocabulary Mastery at the second semester of STKIP PGRI Tulungagung using Spot Dictation. Action research is a form of collective self-reflective enquiry undertaken by participants in social situations in order to improve the rationality and justice of their own social or educational practices, as well as their understanding of those practices and the situations in which the practices are carried out (Carr and Kemmis 1988: 5-6 in Smith, 2007). According to the result of Test Cycle I was done in cycle I, it was found that the students who could reach the passing grade were 21 students (84%) and 4 students (16%) were failed. The criteria of success which had been determined was 80% of the students and the standard value was 80. So, the action in cycle 1 was successful. The suggestion for the students by using Spot Dictation, the students can know much Vocabulary Mastery and it makes students more active in teaching and learning process, for English lecturer should use Spot Dictation as alternative way in teaching Vocabulary Mastery and for future researcher as the reference to make a further research.

There are many kinds of media that can be used to learn English: audio, visual, and audio visual media. Here, the discussion focuses on the audio media applied in teaching listening skill to the first semester students through the use of radio podcast at STKIP PGRI Tulungagung.The writer presents conceptual study by highlighting the use of radio podcast in teaching listening which is assumed more practical than other media. This condition includes all English lecturers who also busy themselves with the improvement of teaching skill. One of the innovative media used by lecturer is radio podcast. Baehaqi (2011:21) states radio podcasts are existing radio programs turned into podcasts, such as BBC News. The English lecturer uses radio podcasts which include audio materials then given to the students. By giving up-to-date materials through an attractive media, the atmosphere of listening class has become exciting activity.
