Abstract

Grammar is one of the important elements in English that must be mastered or at least   understood by the learners. In measuring students’ understanding of grammar, teachers can use four kinds of tests. They are gap filling, paraphrase, completion, and multiple choice. Multiple choice and gap filling are commonly used in assessing grade-schoolers’ understanding of grammar. Both of them are considered easy tests. Thus, there shouldt be no difference in students’ scores, whether using multiple choice test or gap filling test. This study is conducted to find a brief comparison  of the usage of multiple choice and  gap  filling in measuring their understanding of grammar. This study also tries to determine which test is more influential in measuring the students’ understanding of grammar. This study uses quantitative approach. The data collection is obtained from students’ scores in both tests and the questionnaires. Through data analysis it is found that there is a significant difference in students’ scores of multiple choice and gap filling test. Students’ multiple choice scores are significantly better than their gap filling scores. It is also found that most of students believe that  gap  filling  test  is  better  than  multiple  choice  test  to  assess  their understanding of grammar. KEYWORDS:  grammar,  multiple  choice  test,  gap  filling  test,  paraphrase, completion

Abstract

This analysis was motivated by the previous studies which suggest that  texts  are never ideology-free nor objective; and  meanings are constructed through social languages or discourses  and are socially constructed,  not neutral and often privilege some while marginalizing or excluding others. The analysis was done to the text entitled  “Pakistani girl shot by Taliban claims triumph over terrorists”. The present analysis concerns: (1) the actions which are attributed to the participants in the text, (2) the participants’ actions which are de-agentialized and objectivated, (3) and the ideology behind the text. The text was analized by employing Van Leeuwen’s 2009 Method of Critical Discourse Analysis. Both qualitative and quantitative procedures were used to analyze the data. The conclusion of this study is that the ideology of egalitarianism or equalitarianism can strengthten its believers – even young believers – to fight agaist discrimination using various efforts including their verbal, physic, and  mental to get their rights. Key Words: Van Leeuwen’s method of Critical Discourse Analysis, Ideology

Abstract

The analysis of language and culture has been long and widely made.  To mention a few, Lies Sercu (2005) addresses this issue in Foreign Language Teachers and Intercultural Competence,  Soler and Jordan (ed, 2007) in Intercultural language Use and Language Learning, Nieto (2010) in Language, Cultural and Teaching, and Deardorff (2009) in The Sage Handbook of Intercultural Competence . Nevertheless, most recently this topic has  received  more attention  and  become more important,  as  discussed    by   Dasep Suprijadi and Euis Rina Mulyani in their research based articles.  If the goal of language instruction is communicative competence, language instruction must be integrated with cultural and cross-cultural instruction for sociocultural competence is part of   communicative competence, besides linguistic competence, discourse   competence,   formulaic   competence,   and   interactional   competence,   as proposed by Celce-Murcia (1995) in Soler and Jorda (2007). Sociocultural competence refers to the speaker’s pragmatic knowledge, i.e. how to express messages appropriately within  the  overall  social  and  cultural  context  of  communication.  This  includes knowledge of   language variation with reference to sociocultural norms of the target language. In fact a social or cultural blunder can be far more serious than a linguistic error when one is engaged in oral communication.

With regard to the purpose of the research, an experimental research is applied where twenty-five pairs of students from two groups are observed. The data are obtained from pre-test and post-test. The data are statistically analyzed and then compared by using mann whitney U test. The result of the study reveals that the use of authentic material in teaching reading does not significantly improve students’ reading comprehension.  Nevertheless, it is recommended that teachers use authentic reading materials for a change. In addition, when bringing authentic materials into classroom, they should be used in accordance with students' ability, as well as with suitable tasks being given. Keywords: Authentic Material and Reading Comprehension

It is reported by World Bank that Indonesian students’ readingcomprehension is very low. That is why, it is crucial to conduct a researchon appropriate techniques to develop students’ reading comprehension. Oneof them is mind mapping (MM). MM is a technique that can increase one’sability in note taking. It not only includes the key words of information orideas but also implements the use of colors and drawing, thus MM projectbecomes fun and enjoyable. The aim of this study is to observe theimplementation of MM in a class of first graders of a senior high school inBandung. For that reason , two meetings are observed. There are threeinstruments employed: students’ mind maps, observation (by observer andthe teacher), and open-ended questionnaire. From the data obtained, it isrevealed that there is improvement from the first meeting (90.4%) to thesecond one (94.6%) of the students mind maps. The MM can make thestudents recall their background knowledge and focus on their reading.Meanwhile, the questionnaires indicate that they are unfamiliar with thetechnique, yet they enjoy it. Therefore, MM can be considered to be analternative technique in teaching reading comprehension. KEYWORDS: mind mapping, open-ended questionnaire
