4 2 INTRODUCTION Reading and writing are two activities that link each other. As a part of language skill, writing is very important to support communication among human being. In learning language, there are four of language skills so they can use English actively. Language is not only spoken, but also written. It is a basic language skill, just as important as speaking, listening, and reading. The primary function of language is a communication system. Moreover, communication can be divided into two; verbal communication and written communication. Both of them are important, but they are different. The researcher can say that only educated people can communicate in written language, because it is very complex one, not only in grammar point but also other factors which influence it. The grammar point in writing is necessary, whereas, in speaking is not so necessary as long as the speaker and listener understand each other. In addition, writing is one of the difficulties, which is faced by the students. According Richards & Renandya ( in Fauziati, 2002) that writing is the most difficult skill to master for foreign language learners. This is due not only to the need to generate and organize ideas using an appropriate choice of vocabulary, sentence, and paragraph organization but also to turn such ideas into a readable text. According to Harmer (2004 : 33) writing is integral part of a large activity where the focus is on something else such as language practice, acting out, or speaking. Writing is a complex activity since it requires students comprehensive abilities such as mastering grammar, vocabulary, and

5 3 punctuation. Besides, to write well, the students are expected to be able to present their ideas in the written form as writing is a means of communication. However, some think that writing is not only delivering ideas to others but also using a sheer energy to complete the writing process itself: thinking the ideas, preparing the outline, transferring the outline into draft, revising the draft, and finally proofreading the draft to prepare for the final outcome. Meyers (2005: 2) stated that writing is a way to produce language you do naturally when you speak. Writing is speaking to other on paper or on a computer screen. Writing is also an action a process of discovering and organizing your ideas, putting them on a paper and reshaping and revising them. Writing skill is one of the important competences that must be mastered by students because we know that language is not only in spoken form, but also it can be used in written form. This skill does not merely focus on words, phrase, sentence pattern and grammar, but also focus on the idea of each paragraph in the text contextually. Palmer (1994: 5) states that writing is recursive. It goes back and forth we plan a little, put words on paper, stop to plan when we want to say next, go back and change a sentence, or change our minds altogether. Process writing is a way of looking at what people do when they compose written text. Teaching of writing should focus on writing process that is the students attention was directed to the how of the text construction. Nolasco (1987: 42) writing is often used to present an opinion. In writing the

6 4 students can express their opinion about something. For example, students can look the writer's opinion in book, letter, articles, poem, etc. and the The students can send their opinion or idea, feeling, and message to other people in written form about what they read or look. Every teacher probably has his or her own media in teaching English as foreign language. An effective teacher has a multitude of media and must be able to select the ones, which will be the most efficient in leading the learners to the desired terminal behavior. To reach the success in teaching and learning process, teacher needs some teaching media such as regalia, chart, picture, etc. Choosing the appropriate media, the teacher should take a note of the suggestion from Gerlach and Ely (1999: 260) as follows, Once a medium has been verified as appropriate, it should be subjective to four other criteria level of sophistication, cost, availability, and technical quality. Tourism object video is one of teaching media that can be used by the teaching in teaching descriptive text. It gives visual aid to students in learning writing descriptive text. According to Howard (1998: 143), the teaching that uses visual aids will almost certainly be better and will not probably be easier because understanding and idea are most easily discovered by the students. The researcher believes that by using tourism object video the students will find teaching-learning process both stimulating and enjoyable. By tourism brochure, the students will be interested and more

7 5 enthusiastic in learning writing descriptive text. According to Hammond (1992: 78), the social function of descriptive text is to describe a particular person, place, or thing. The generic structures of this text are: (1) Identification: identifies the person, place or things to be described. (2) Description: describes parts, qualities, characteristics. The purpose of descriptive text is used in all forms of writing to create a vivid impression of a person, place, object or event e.g. to: (1) Describe a special place and explain why it is special. (2) Describe the most important person in your live. (3) Describe the animal s habit in your report. In this study, the researcher focuses on a certain problems. The major problems in this study are as follows: 1. How is the students' writing skill before being taught using tourism object video in the tenth grade of SMK Negeri 1 Geger in the academic year 2013 / 2014? 2. How is the students' writing skill after being taught using tourism object video in the tenth grade of SMK Negeri 1 Geger in the academic year 2013 / 2014? 3. Is tourism object video effective to increase students writing skill at the tenth grade of SMK Negeri 1 Geger in the academic year 2013/2014? 4. Do the students encounter some problems in writing skill using tourism object video?

8 6 5. Do the teachers also encounter some problems when teaching the students in writing descriptive text using tourism object video at SMKN 1 Geger in academic year 2013/2014? Based on the formulation above, the objectives of this research are: 1. To describe the students writing skill before being taught using tourism object video in SMK Negeri 1 Geger. 2. To describe the students writing skill after being taught using tourism object video in SMK Negeri 1 Geger. 3.

RESEARCH METHODS In conducting the study, the researcher uses a q u a s i - experimental research. According to Arikunto (2010: 123) that quasi experiment research is the way to look for the causality between two factors which intend to be generated by researcher which eliminates other factors that disturbs. Arikunto (2010: 23) states that experimental research is the most conclusive and scientific methods because the researcher actually

10 8 establishes different treatments and then studies their effects. He also defines that experimental research as the kind of study in which the researcher is interested in learning about the effects of a certain conditions (independent variables) and other conditions (dependent variables) in controlled setting. According to Iskandar (2010: 48), a variable is a characteristic that takes on different or considerations for different individuals. There are two types of variables: independent and dependent variables. The independent variable is simply a classifying variable; it classifies the individual of the study. He also says that the values of the dependent variable depend on the independent variable. Therefore, the variables of this study are: 1) Independent variable: the use of tourism object video. 2) Dependent variable: the score of writing descriptive text. This research was conducted at the tenth grade students SMK N 1 Geger in academic year 2013/2014 from July to Desember Arikunto (2010) stated that a population is a set (or collection) of all elements processing one or more attributes of interest. The researcher takes the population of this research is the tenth grade of SMK Negeri 1 Geger academic year 2013/2014 that consists of nine classes. Each class consists of 32 students, so the population is 288 students. The researcher determines the sample by using random sampling technique. In this case, the researcher will take one class randomly from

11 9 tenth grade, because the writing skill in this grade needs to build. Therefore, the researcher chooses tenth grade with 32 students as a sample of the research. To analyze the data the researcher applies an appropriate technique to find but whether it is effective or not teaching writing using tourism brochure. The researcher used descriptive and inferential analysis. Sugiyono (2010: 23) says that descriptive statistic is a statistic that has the function of describing or giving a description on the observed object by the data of population as in the fact, without doing analysis and making conclusion which obtains to the general. On the other hand, inferential analysis is a statistic that has the function to conclude the data from descriptive analysis. Hypothesis will be analyzed using t-test using statistic SPSS 17 program. The t-test is to see the score difference between the two variables: the student s ability in writing descriptive text before treatment and the student s ability after treatment. After getting the result of t- value, then the t- value is consulted to the t- value to be interpreted. RESEARCH FINDINGS This research took place at SMK N 1 Geger, Madiun.
