    Abstract

    The aim of the study is to find out whether teaching writing descriptive text by using give one, take one technique is effective or not for senior high school students. In the working hypothesis (Ha), “There is significant difference in students‟ writing achievement between those who are taught using give one, take one and those who are taught using conventional teaching.” Meanwhile, in the null hypothesis (Ho), “There is no significant difference in the students‟ writing achievement between those who are taught using give one, take one and those who are taught using conventional teaching.” The subject of this study was the tenth grade students of SMA Negeri 1 Purwodadi in the academic year 2014/2015. The number of the subject was 80 students (51 female and 39 male). The design of this study was a quasi- experimental study. The data were gained by administering pre-test and post-test of writing test. By using purposive random sampling, students of X-MIA-1 were taken as the samples of the experimental group and the samples of control group were the students of X-MIA-7. In the pre-test, the mean score of the experimental group was 60.175 and the control group was 60.15. After the treatment, the result of post-test of the experimental group was 73,25 while the control group was 64.525. The result of the t-test of mean difference was 10.929 and t-table was 1.67. It means that t-value is higher than t-table (10.929 >1.67). That means that the technique was effective enough to be used in teaching descriptive text. Lastly, the writer suggests the teacher to consider give one, take one as a proper technique in teaching writing descriptive text and applying this technique in his/her next classroom activities for it has been proven that this technique can improve the students‟ writing ability.
