    Abstract

    This research was conducted because there is a possibility to introduce online newspaper to the students to improve their ability in grammar mastery due to the rapidity of technology development. Online newspaper and grammar were chosen because online newspaper contains grammar which was written straightly correct. The problem of this research is how effective the use of online newspaper in the learning of grammar is, and the purpose of this research is to find out whether it is effective or not. The subject of this research is eighth grade students of SMP Negeri 8 Batang. They were chosen considering that their grammar mastery is still low. The research design used in this research is quasi-experimental design, with post-test pre-test experimental and control group. The result of this research shows that the gain of experimental group score is not as high as control group. So, it can be concluded that using online newspaper in the learning of grammar is not effective because the score gain of experimental group is lower than control group. It was caused by the difference of students’ interests in topic of the online newspaper’s passage. The other factor is the difficulty level of the text did not match the students’ ability. Regarding the choice of the media, The Jakarta Post, unfortunately the students were not familiar yet with it. For-kid newspaper should be chosen in order to make it agree with junior high school students’ English ability.
