After that, some treatments were also given to the students. There were two meetings for the experimental group using think-pair-share strategy and two meetings for the control group using conventional method. In each treatment for the experimental group, the students were asked to describe something related to the question posed by the teacher. Meanwhile for the control group, they were given a short conversation related to the descriptive text. The last step, the students were asked to do the post-test. It was to find out the effectiveness of the treatments. Then, the scores of the students in the pre- and post-test were analyzed. The difference of the pre-test score’s average of the experimental and control groups was 1.21 while the difference average score of the post-test was 3.85. In addition, the difference between the pre-test and the post-test of experimental group is 18.09. It is higher than the control group which has average score of 15.45.
