    Abstract

    This final project is about using flash animation to improve students‘ learning behaviours in speaking class particularly in retelling a story. The objectives of this study are to describe the students‘ problems in speaking class, to describe how a flash animation can be applied in teaching speaking especially about retelling a story and to describe the extent of students‘ learning behaviours in speaking class particularly in retelling a story. The object of this study was the eight graders of class VIII-D SMPN 2 Kendal in the academic year of 2011/2012. In order to achieve the objectives of my study, I designed an action research that was carried out through preliminary observation, cycle 1, and cycle 2. I used observation checklist, questionnaire, and speaking test as my instruments in collecting the data. There were five meetings in this research. One meeting was used for conducting preliminary observation and pre-test, and four meetings were used to conduct cycle 1 and cycle 2. The results of this study showed that the students‘ learning behaviours changes better during the teaching learning process. The average score of students‘ behaviour checklist in cycle 1 was 18.875, then increased to be 21.708 in cycle 2. It meant that the students‘ learning behaviours changed well. There was also a significant difference of the result of the students‘ mean score in pre-test, formative test, and post test. The students‘ mean score in pre-test was 70.80; formative test was 76.40; and post-test was 82.27. Based on the results of the research, it can be concluded that flash animation is an effective medium to improve students‘ learning behaviours in speaking class particularly in retelling a story. In this study, I suggest the English teacher to use flash animation as one of the media in teaching speaking through retelling a story.
