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.

This research investigates whether the students achieve better Writing skill after being taught using google classroom or not. The design of this research is quantitative research, which is concerned with hypothesis, formulation, testing and analysis of the relationship between two variables; dependent variable and independent variable. Both of variables are selected  and observed.Based on the statistical calculation using SPSS 16.0, the researcher gave interpretation to significant value. Because significant value 0.000 was smaller than significant level 0.05, it can be concluded that alternative hypothesis (Ha) was accepted and the null hypothesis (H0) was rejected. It means that there was significant effect after using Google classroom to teach writing. Thus, it can be concluded that by using Google classroom in teaching writing at the first semester at STKIP PGRI Tulungagung in the academic year of 2018/2019 is effective.As the conclusion, teaching writing by using Google classroom is more effective and interesting for the first semester students at STKIP PGRI Tulungagung in the academic year 2018/2019.  By using google classroom, students hopefully can increase their Writing skill.
