    Abstract

    This final project is based on a study which attempts to examine the eleventh graders’ vocabulary mastery in one of the Senior High Schools in Semarang in the academic year of 2015/2016. The objectives of this study are to find out the significant difference of students’ vocabulary achievement between the students who were taught by using word baseball graphic organizer and those who were not and to investigate the effectiveness of using word baseball graphic organizer to teach vocabulary. In order to achieve the goal, I used a quasiexperimental research design. The population of this study was the eleventh grade students in one of Senior High Schools in Semarang in the academic year of 2015/2016. The samples consisted of 68 students. By using purposive sampling, students of XI IPA 3 were taken as the samples of the experimental group, and the samples of control group were the students of XI IPA 2. The experimental group was taught by using word baseball graphic organizer while the control group was taught without using word baseball graphic organizer. The data were gained by administering pre-test and post-test of vocabulary test. The mean score of pre-test in the experimental group was 74.35, and the control group was 74.62. The result of post-test of experimental group was 83.09 while the control group was 79.29. To check whether the treatment significantly influenced students’ vocabulary, the t-test formula was used. It was obtained sig value 0.000 in both the experimental and the control groups, with α = 5% = 0.05. Since 0.000 was less than 0.05, it meant that there was a significant difference on the students’ vocabulary achievement between the students who were taught by using word baseball graphic organizer and those who were not. The higher achievement in the experimental group proved that using word baseball graphic organizer in teaching vocabulary to the subjects was effective. Therefore, I suggested that English teachers may use word baseball graphic organizer as an alternative medium in teaching vocabulary.
