This study used descriptive-qualitative research in order to find out and describe the students’ problem in writing a compound-complex sentence. Moreover, the researcher used written test as the instrument and also used simple random sampling technique in selecting the subjects of the study. Therefore, 40 students from English Department batch 2014 had been chosen to be the subjects. Finally, the researcher used descriptive method to describe the problems that the researcher found and then explained the problems in the discussion part based on the data in the first test and the second test. The research results showed that there are three problems that the students faced in writing the compound-complex sentence. The major is in the conjunction. It happened because the students have difficulties in choosing the conjunctions that are usually used in writing compound-complex sentences. The second major problem is the punctuation. It happened because they forget to put the punctuation or they put the punctuation in the wrong place. The minor problem is the less known about the compound-complex sentence. The less knowledge here means the students already know about compound complex but the subjects still have difficulties in choosing the conjunction and the punctuation.

Abstract

Reading is taught in Indonesian schools to enable the students to read and understand a text and any material written in English. Unfortunately, students still have difficulties to master reading skills. The eleventh grade of MA NIPI RAKHA Amuntai in 2015/2016 are the classes that had this problem. Then, to solve the problem, the Jigsaw Method is used in order to improve students’ reading comprehension achievement. The aim of this study is to find out whether there is any improvement in students’ reading comprehension achievement of students who are taught by using the Jigsaw Method. This study uses quasi-experimental design. The finding of the research shows that there are improvements in the two classes. The average score of pre-test and post-test of an experimental class are 74.55 and 84.24, while control class only gets 69.99 in pre-test and 72.18 in post-test. In addition, the calculation of t-test result is 2.06 is higher than the t-table 1.67. Based on research finding, Jigsaw Method is suggested to be used as one of the methods in teaching reading comprehension, and this study is also suggested for other researchers who want to conduct similar area on the use of Jigsaw method.

Abstract

This thesis is purposed at proving the effectiveness of cartoon videos in teaching speaking to the Eighth Grade Students of SMPN 2 Rantau Kalimantan Selatan in academic year of 2013/2014, and showing that there is a significant difference in speaking ability between the students who were taught by using cartoon videos and those who were taught by using conventional method.This study is an experimental research. The population of this study was the eighth-grade students of SMPN 2 Rantau Kalimantan Selatan in the academic year of 2013/2014 which consisted of seven classes. The total number of population was 158. There were two classes taken as the sample, Class VIII B serving as control class were taught by using conventional method, while class VIII F as the experimental class was taught by using cartoon videos. Class VIII B consisted of 22 students and class VIII F consisted of 22 students. Both classes were given the pre-test at the beginning and the post-test at the end after the treatment. The data were collected by using speaking test. The data were analyzed by using t-test computation, descriptive analysis, and inferential analysis.The research findings show that there is a significant difference in students’ speaking ability between the experimental group taught by using cartoon videos and those who were taught by using conventional method. The result of the pre-test shows that both groups are poor, while the post-test result shows that the experiment group is better than the control one. The mean score of the experimental class in pre-test was 42.50 and that of control class was 42.73. The mean score in post-test of the experimental class was 75.68 and that of the control class was 57.50. It can be seen that the mean score of the experimental class was higher than that of the control class in post-test. Furthermore, based on the hypothesis testing, it could be seen that the value of -t obtained (-5.245) < - t table (-2.018), at a significant level of 5%. This implied that there is a significant difference between students’ speaking ability between the students who were taught by using cartoon videos and those who were taught by using conventional method.

Abstract

The goal of this paper is to know how emerging concepts and digital technologies can respond to the changing needs of the learners.  Digital technologies offer us promising opportunities to respond to and incorporate into the practice of educational assessment some of the emerging epistemologies. Epistemologies that may be integral to the effort to deliver high quality education to learners with diverse characteristics and life circumstances in our society. Exploration on development on technology, applied to how we conceptualized and implement assessment may help in the education enterprise to prepare learners for the challenges of the twenty first century workplace. Gordon commissioner and senior scholar Eva Baker (2012) observe that there are at least three rational approaches to dealing with the unpredictability of job and learning requirement in changing global context: 1) educational systems must become both operational and politically agile. 2) Assessment should always include task that call for transfer or the application of learning to new unexpected task, 3) learning and assessment should focus on more pervasive skills that could be embedded in different context and changing subject matter directed toward new applications. Baker identifies two simple and clear policy actions. First transfer must be regularly included as part of test or assessment used to measure learning. Second is to investigate the use of cognitive, interpersonal and intrapersonal skills which is understand as a type of interaction we expect to be demonstrated with components that interact with one another.

Abstract

Pronunciation is very important skill in learning English. To acquire good pronunciation skill, the English learners are expected to pronoun English sound and so its stress word based on the phonological features. However, phonology the study of speech sound, has many aspects or features such as segmental or supra-segmental that sometimes bring difficulties to students. Then, the problems may appear if students cannot produce the appropriate speech sound based on its features because of the complexity of its phonological system. Since the segmental feature is related with the speech sound emitted by the speech organs, this study is set to examine only the English voiced-voiceless consonant sound as the limitation of the study. Similarly, in the suprasegmental feature, the aspect of word and sentence stresses are also set to examine. It is essentially important that the English sounds should be pronounced based on the appropriate utterances and the stress pattern to deliver the right meaning of what speaker wants to say. Even it is not directly or clearly changed the meaning of the word, but if the speakers produce the different utterances from the features, the pronunciation will be not sounded English. Thus, this recent study aims to examine the pronunciation errors of English Department students in pronouncing English voiced-voiceless consonant sounds which do not exist in the students’ first language and giving stress to English words and sentences.

Abstract

Teacher identity has become an issue in teaching and teachers’ professional identity development since the identity influences teachers’ teaching pedagogies and teachers’ development. Many studies have explored teachers’ identity from in-service teachers’ perspectives. Somehow, small attention has been paid to teachers’ identity construction from pre-service perspectives in Indonesian context. To fill this gap, this research investigated how Indonesian pre-service teachers constructed and reconstructed their identities through peers’ feedbacks in a micro-teaching class. There were three pre-service teachers from Sanata Dharma University who participated in this study. The data were obtained through field observations and interviews. Using Yuan and Lee’s (2015) theory, the study investigated the cognitive, social and emotional processes of their teacher identity construction. The findings of the study suggested that pre-service language teachers developed and modified their identities through peers’ feedbacks in a teaching practicum. The findings also showed that feedbacks delivered positive and negative impacts to pre-service teachers’ identity construction. Although some of the pre-service teachers did not change their beliefs, they still used the feedbacks to prepare for their next teachings. The study supported the theory that teacher identity affected to pre-service teachers’ teaching pedagogies. This paper suggested some implications for policy makers, language teacher education, and pre-service teacher education. A further research with a longer duration is expected.
