    Abstract

    In this final project, I analyzed a textbook entitled Developing English Competencies published by Pusat Perbukuan Departemen Pendidikan 2008 dealing with the reading material. I focused on news item reading texts. Based on the School Based Curriculum there are four skills that should be mastered by students in learning: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. To guarantee that the teaching and learning process run-well and the students can master the four skills, an English teacher needs to arrange syllabus, determine the basic competence, manage time allotment, and choose teaching strategies and materials. Related to the appropriate reading material, the teacher should select a good textbook and should be able to decide whether the contents of the textbook are suitable with the current curriculum or not. This final project was conducted under the consideration that textbook is one of facilities for students to master the material. There are two research problems of this study. First, to find out how the constructions of news item text in terms of its elements found in the textbook are. Second, to find out how the lexicogrammatical features of the elements realized in the news item texts of the textbook are. In this final project, text analysis or discourse analysis was used as the method in analyzing the data. This final project was conducted by reading news item text to collect the data and then every text was analyzed in terms of social function, generic structure, and lexicogrammatical features of news item. Based on the research findings, conclusions can be drawn. Eleven news item texts were found in the textbook. There are four texts that are not well-structured dealing with the construction and the lexicogrammatical features of news item text. Those are text 2, text 3, text 4, and text 6. Text 2, text 3, and text 4 are not well-structured based on the element of the construction of news item. Whereas one of the element of the lexicogrammatical features of news item is not found in text 3, text 4, and text 6. I assumed that those texts are not appropriate to be the examples of news item text in the textbook. However, the textbook still has the other news item texts which have suitable constructions and lexicogrammatical features. Therefore, this textbook can be used as one of alternative textbooks for teaching the tenth grade of senior high school.
