    Abstract

    The aim of the research is to investigate whether guided writing is effective to be used in teaching writing recount text. There are two hypotheses in this research; working hypothesis (Ha) and null hypothesis (Ho). The working hypothesis says, “The eighth grade students taught with guided writing technique gain significantly better mastery of writing recount text than students taught with conventional method”. Meanwhile, the null hypothesis says, “The eighth grade students taught with guided writing technique do not gain significantly better mastery of writing recount text than students taught with conventional method”. The population in this study was eighth grade students of SMPN 1 Tulis. The research applied a quasi experimental study and the research design was a nonequivalent control group design. In this research, the experimental group was taught using guided writing and the control group was taught using conventional method. The data were gained by administering a pre-test and a post-test. In the pre-test, the mean score of the experimental group was 67.93 and the control group was 68.23. The result of post-test of the experimental group was 81.89, while the control group was 74.21. The result of the t-test also showed that there was a significant difference between the experimental group and the control group. t-value for α = 5% and n = 77 was 2.34 and t-table for t (0.05)(77) was 1.985. The calculation proved that t-value was higher than t-table. It is concluded that guided writing is effective to be used in teaching writing recount text. The use of sequence of questions and outline can help the students to express their ideas. It is suggested that the teacher should consider that guided writing is a good technique in teaching writing since it is easier for the students to get the ideas before composing a text
