    Abstract

    This final project aimed to find out the effectiveness of Hands-on activities using Team Pair Solo to teach writing of descriptive text. A further concern of this study was to investigate the significant difference of students’ writing achievement between the students taught by using the integration of Hands-on activities into Team Pair Solo and those who were not. To gain the objectives, the writer conducted an experimental research. The research design was a quasi-experimental research non-equivalent control group design. The writer used nonrandom sampling to determine the sample. The samples consisted of 64 students. The data were obtained by giving writing test to VII E as control group and VII F as experimental group. The study was started by giving pre-test, treatments, and post-test to both groups. Hands-on activities using Team Pair Solo was used as treatment in the experimental group, while the control group used the regular technique of English teacher. The results of the tests were analyzed by using t-test formula to find out the significant difference of the students’ achievement in writing of descriptive text between two groups. The results of this study showed that the mean score of the pre-test in the experimental group was 58.28 while in the control group was 58.91. However, the result of post-test was increased. In the post-test, the mean score of the experimental group was 72.88 and the control group got 61.13. Moreover, the result of the t-test was 3.923 and ttable was 1.671. It meant that there was significant difference of writing achievement between two groups because tvalue was higher than ttable. The research findings of this study revealed that the results of the post-test and t-test calculation were contrary to the null hypothesis and were in line with the working hypothesis which stated “there is significant difference between the students taught by using the integration of Hands-on activities into Team Pair Solo technique and those who were not”. In conclusion, according to the post-test result in the experimental group and t-test calculation, it could be proven that Hands-on activities using Team Pair Solo was effective to be used in teaching writing of descriptive text. That is why the writer suggested English teachers to use this technique or find the alternative media and technique to make the students easier in writing descriptive text and to make the English learning process more fun and interesting.
