    Abstract

    This final project discussed the correlation between the students‟ reading habit and students‟ ability of writing narrative text. The basic problem the writer wanted to discuss in this final project was the importance of reading habit which impacts the ability of writing narrative text of the eleventh graders of SMAN 1 Kajen Pekalongan. The research was aimed at finding out the level of reading habit of the eleventh graders of SMAN 1 Kajen in the academic year of 2014/2015, examining their writing ability, and finding out whether there is a correlation between students‟ reading habit and their ability of writing narrative text. The population of this final project was the eleventh graders of SMAN 1 Kajen in the academic year of 2014/2015 and it was 309 students. 34 students were taken as the samples in this research through random sampling technique. A questionnaire was used to measure how good the students‟ reading habit and guided writing test to measure students‟ ability of writing narrative text. After conducting the research, it was found that the average score of the students‟ reading habit was 61.1%, that was in good level and the average score of the ability of writing narrative text was 72.4 that was categorized good as well. Moreover, the result of data analysis using SPSS shows that the correlation coefficient between the two variables (reading habit and writing ability) is 0.629, while the critical value for 34 students with 95% confidence is 0.339. Since the correlation coefficient obtained (0.629) is higher than the table value (0.339). It was concluded that there was a positive correlation between students‟ reading habit and their ability of writing narrative text. Based on the research findings, it is suggested that the teachers should find a new way of teaching writing because writing style does not come from actual writing experience, but from reading. Many researches strongly suggest that learning to write is by reading, to be more precise in acquiring writing style, the special language of writing, by reading.
