Abstract

Based on classroom teaching and learning activities, it was found that some learners experienced difficulties in learning writing. They were low-motivated in writing. They were also confused how to start writing. In addition, the technique used by the teacher was monotonous, which made the learners bored to join English lesson especially writing. It was proven by the learners’ writing score in which 55% of the learners got <75. For that reason, Free Writing and Clustering technique are the best answer to support success in teaching learning process to improve the learners’ descriptive text writing. The objective of this research is to find out whether there is significant difference between the use of Free Writing Technique and Clustering Technique in increasing the learners’ descriptive text writing ability. This study used Control Group Pre-Test and Post-Test design. Pre-test and post-test were implemented to collect the data. The populations of this research were 7th grade learners of 2nd Semester at SMP IT Ar Raihan Bandar Lampung in the Academic Year of 2017/2018. Two classes were chosen as 1st and 2nd experimental class by using Cluster Random Sampling. 1st experimental class was treated by using Clustering Technique while 2nd experimental class was treated by using Free Writing Technique. The result shows that there is significant difference between the use of Free Writing Technique and Clustering Technique in increasing the learners’ descriptive text writing ability. It was proven by the result of statistical computation using t-test formula. It is obtained that T observed is 10.189, while T critical is 2.056. Because T observed is higher than T critical value, it means that the use of Free Writing and Clustering Technique has significant difference in increasing learners’ descriptive text writing ability
