Abstract

This final project is an action research study that answers the research question: how effective can pictures be materials for teaching narrative writing? The answer was proven through the research. In this research, the subject of the study was the second year students of SMUN I Demak in the academic year of 2008/2009. There was only one group used in this research. The group was taught narrative writing by using sequential pictures. The data were collected through an essay test. The test was to gain the validity and reliability. The reliability and validity was calculated by using SPSS version 12.0 (Statistical Package for the Social Science) then compared them with r value in the Product Moment table. To obtain the data, the writer carried out three steps: pre-test, cycle I (exercise), and cycle II (post-test). In the pre test, the mean score was 63,350. After receiving the treatments in the cycle I, there was an improvement. The mean score in cycle I was 65,275. Then, the mean score in cycle II (post-test) was improved that was 70,450. The significant difference between the three steps showed that the use of sequential pictures in teaching writing narrative text was effective. The conclusion taken from the research is that the sequential pictures were effective in teaching narrative writing to the second year students of Senior High School. The sequential pictures can motivate the students in writing a narrative paragraph. They can also guide the students in composing a text. Thus, it is suggested that in teaching writing narrative text to second year students of Senior High School, teachers use the sequential pictures to motivate and guide students in composing a text.
