Abstract

Teaching English in High School level (Junior High School and Senior High School) is more exposed in reading and writing skills for the target of final examination (UN).Consequently, students need to sharpen their reading and writing ability. It also must be done by students in a non-formal Senior High School known as KejarPaket C without any exception. Improving reading skill can be done through doing more reading activities in various types of text. This activity will add students’ vocabularies and their knowledge about more topics of the texts. Besides, the way teachers deliver the material deals with techniques, methods, or strategies also contributes in students’ progress of reading skill. Seeing the background of students in KejarPaket C who have various backgrounds and mostly are from low economic level or less motivated students for studying, teachers should concern more in exposing the material through the appropriate and effective technique. Carter (2001) brings an idea about a technique which teacher and students are taking place in dialogue and it resulted in students learning how to construct meaning when they are placed in must-read situations (tests or assignments). This was experimental research which was conducted to find the difference of students’ reading proficiency taught by using a technique called Reciprocal. The study found that the technique contributed significantly in improving students’ reading proficiency after they were taught by using Reciprocal. In brief, Reciprocal technique is an effective way to improve students’ reading proficiency.

Abstract

التعليم هو نشاط اشتراك المدرس في بناء الفهم ( مصلح، 2008: 52). ومن ذلك التعريف – بناء الأرآء و إيجاد موقف الفكر- فعملية التعلم والتعليم تتكون من أربعة عناصر هي الاتصال و التفاعل والعاكسة والتجربة .  التفاعل التربوي هو العلاقة التبادلية بين المدرس والتلاميذ في نظام التعليم  . هو التفاعل الذي يجري في الارتباط لأهداف التربية والتعليم. في مصطلح آخر هو تفاعل التعلم والتعليم .  تفاعل التعلم والتعليم عامل هام في محاولة إدراك تحقيق موقف التعلم والتعليم الجيد في نشاط التعليم  . لإيجاد التفاعل التربوي ثلاثة نواحي الأساسية، هي عناصر أساسية في التفاعل التبوي، و تنمية نظام التعليم من حصة الدرس في تلك عملية التفاعل، و كيف يفعل المدرس في نشاط التعليم. وأنماط تفاعل التعلم والتعليم متنوعة معتمدا علي نشاط المدرس ونشاط التلاميذ في الفصل والعلاقة بينهما وبين التلاميذ أنفسهم في عملية التعليم. لذالك، أنواع تفاعل التعلم والتعليم يناسب أيضا بالطريقة التعليمية المختارة.                                                                                              المدخل الاتصالي بأنه المدخل علي تصميم خطة درس اللغة، ولتلوود يفسره كمدخل الذي يدمج تعليم وظائف اللغة والقواعد. وقال ريجاردس ورودغرس عن هذاالمدخل بأنه استخدام الإجراءات التي يوضع تلاميذ لغة الهدف في المجموعات تتكون من تلميذان أو أكثر، التي تستخدمون مصادر اللغة المتاحة لحل المشكلات.                                                                                           أن أنماط تفاعل تعلم اللغة العربية وتعليمها علي أساس المدخل الاتصالي  المناسبة بأنواع التفاعل السابقة هي : عند سوجانا : الاتصال كالتفاعل و الاتصال كالصفقة، و عند ليغرين هو نمط المدرس – التلاميذ –التلاميذ، و نمط المدرس –التلاميذ ، التلاميذ – المدرس، التلاميذ- التلاميذ. وقدر حركة التلاميذ الذي يناسب بتعليم اللغة العربية علي أساس المدخل الاتصالي هو الحركة المخطوطة المقصودة من جانبي المدرس والتلاميذ، ليس الحركة العرضية .

Abstract

In English Education Program Speaking Class starts at Semester I until Semester V. It starts from imitative, intensive, responsive, interactive and extensive speaking. In semester IV the students are expected to be able to communicate in local, national, or even inter- national settings about economic, social, environmental and politic issues.However, speaking skill is not easily obtained. There are some factors that make speaking class is not maximal. It might be caused by class setting, teaching method, teaching materials, students’ knowledge or even students’ interest. Further, getting speaking skills for all students in the classroom is not easy as they often face uneven participation, little talking time as certain students dominate the class. So, it is the lecturer’s role to set the speaking activity that can facilitate both the active speakers and silence speakers. The silence speakers need to practice speaking in low-pressure situation such as in small group before practicing in high-pressure situation like presentation in class.This research aims to describe the way to apply CTL model to activate students’ participation in Speaking Class. Through CTL the lecturer relates the learning materials and students activities that are relevant to their needs in their real life. The reseacher choses issues on economy, social, and environment for the topic of the discussion and she used prolem-solving approach.The population of the research is the fourth semester of English Education Program in the academic year 2013/2014. The total number of population is 210 students which consists of 6 classes. The researcher took 65 students (30%) from class A and B as the sample. The instrument used in the research were classroom observation and questionaire . The data were analyzed through descriptive analysis.Based on the finding and the discussion, the conclusion can be drawn that CTL model is able to activate students’ participation in Speaking Class of the fourth Semester of English Education Program in academic year of 2013/2014.

Abstract

Designing a test is an uneasy task. It is proven by the fact that many teachers find difficulties in designing a good test. The present article attempts to review the English school exam in Indonesia and present an example of the test design of a midterm reading test for junior high school students in Semarang. To this end, firstly, a sample of test script of the school exam for JHS students in Semarang in the academic year 2017/2018 was reviewed. The review of the test shows that creating a good quality of test items still become a concern for English teachers as they made some grammatical errors. Consecutively, a midterm reading test was also designed and administered in a junior high school in Semarang, Central Java. Then, the test designed was evaluated by considering the validity, reliability, and practicality as suggested by (Brown Abeywickrama, 2010).  The administration of the test and evaluation show some weaknesses; therefore, the suggestions for the betterment of the test design are also made, such as revising some test items with a very low facility index and negative discrimination index. This study implicates pedagogically the teachers to train students on how to summarize and paraphrase since these skills underrepresented.

This research revealed that male and female character differs in their number of using of linguistic features. Female characters are stated use more lexical hedge, avoidance of strong swear word, rising intonation on declarative, empty adjective, intensifier, emphatic stress and super polite form than male do. Female characters use those features to show their uncertainty toward things; they tend to avoid strong swear word and use more superpolite form. Therefore, female expressions are considered more polite than male. Consequently, they can avoid friction in their conversation and build effective communication across gender. This result is in line with Lakoff theory. The researcher found that the feature which is dominantly used by male and female is an intensifier. Furthermore, the implication of this research in teaching speaking especially complimenting and interrupting expression as the functional expression is the student needs to exposed expressions of complimenting and interrupting appropriately.

Abstract

This study reports on a case study of a blind EFL learner. The purpose of the study was to explore a detailed situated data to examine to what extent it is feasible to be a successful language learner despite being visually impaired and lacking some learning resources.  Interview data and the narratives of this EFL learner have revealed that her success was mainly based on her agentic interaction with the environment and learning context, her high motivation and strategic behavior, and her sustained efforts. The findings provide further insight into the role of learner in exerting control over contextual resources that frame learning and on how different factors interact with each other in the language learning process in the construction of learner identity and the strategies used by learners.
