Abstract

This paper dealt with teaching recount texts by using brainstorming technique. The researchers used brainstorming technique and the aims was to find out the effectiveness of that technique for teaching recount texts. The researchers did a quasi-experimental research to achieve the goal. The subjects of this research were the third semester of 53 batch Technical Department in Politeknik Bumi Akpelni Semarang for this research. TF class took a role as the experimental group, and TG class acted as the control group. Different treatments were given to both groups. The experimental group was taught by using brainstorming technique while the control group was taught without using brainstorming technique. In order to find out the difference of the mean score between the pre-test and post-test, the researchers used paired sample t-test. The result of the t-test was 2.88 and t-table was 2.02. It means that t-value is higher than t-table (2.88 >2.02), and the technique was effective enough to be used in teaching recount texts. The result of this study shows that teaching recount texts by using brainstorming technique gives significant improvement. The average score of the pre-test for the experimental group was 58.00, and for the control group was 59.32. The average score of the post-test for the experimental group was 71.33 while for the control group was 63.95. It can be seen that the experimental group improved higher than the control group.The higher achievement in the experimental group showed that using brainstorming technique for teaching writing recount texts on the third semester of 53 batch Technical Department in Politeknik Bumi Akpelni Semarang was effective. Therefore, the researchers suggest English teacher to use brainstorming technique as an alternative technique for teaching recount texts or any other technique that supports for teaching recount texts
