Abstract

USING THE THINK-PAIR-SHARE TECHNIQUE TO IMPROVE STUDENTS’ SPEAKING ABILITY AT SMP NEGERI 4 NGAGLIK By Nenty Lisa Adhiarsih 08202244047 This action research was aimed at improving the speaking skills of the grade VIII students of SMP N 4 Ngaglik through think-pair-share technique. It attempted to answer the question of How can think-pair-share technique improve the learning process of speaking English in class VIII at SMP Negeri 4 Ngaglik in academic year of 2012/2013? The participants of this study were grade VIII students of SMP N 4 Ngaglik in the academic year of 2012/2013. This study, which lasted for 6 meetings, was carried out in two cycles by employing various instruments for gathering data such as questionnaires, field notes, and interviews. In analysing the data, the following steps were applied systematically: 1) determining the thematic concern-reconnaissance, 2) planning, 3) action and observation, and 4) reflection. Based on the research findings the use of think-pair-share technique in this study successfully improved the students‟ speaking skills. The 34 students who were classified as students who had „learned‟ performance in the pre-test successfully improved their speaking skills so that they were included to have „exemplary‟ performance in the post-test. The think-pair-share technique were also effective in improving the students‟ motivation, self-confidence, awareness, and involvement. Besides those findings, the researcher found that using classroom English, improving students‟ self-confidence by preparing the students to speak spontaneously and giving rewards to motivate the students were demanding. To conclude, this study suggested that several stages in using the think-pair-share technique should be carried out systematically in order to maximize the learning outputs.
