    Abstract

    The title of this final project is teaching narrative writing for junior high school students through animated film (an action research conducted at SMP Negeri 1 Mlonggo Jepara in the academic year of 2008/2009). The subject of this study was the eight year of SMP Negeri 1 Mlonggo Jepara. The objectives of the study were to identify the students’ competency in producing a narrative text and to know the improvement of the students’ ability in writing narrative text through animated film as the media. The technique which was used for obtaining the data was an action research. I chose one class consisting of 37 students. In collecting the data, I carried out three activities. In the first activity, I gave a pre-test to measure the students’ ability in writing narrative text. In the second activity, I asked the students to watch a film entitled “Barbie and the Diamond Castle” animated film. By watching that film, I wanted the students to understand clearly the chronological events, so they can create the story during the treatments. In the last activity, I gave a post-test to measure the students’ improvement. The average of the students’ result in the pre-test was 32.97%, in the test it was 52.97%, and in the post-test it was 69.19%. It means that the students’ achievement in writing narrative text was improved because the result of the post-test was better than the passing grade recommended by the Department of Education and Culture, that is 65%. Based on the study, it is found that English animated film seems to be effective for improving the students’ ability in writing narrative. I hope that this technique will be used by other teachers in the class to enable the students to write narrative text effectively.
