Husni Mubarok, Nina Sofiana

Abstract


This paper was aimed at elaborating the implementation of task-based language learning in teaching reading. Most students were weak in studying reading because of some reasons; teacher‘s misunderstanding about the nature of teaching which triggered the teacher to use traditional teaching method, no teaching model used which could emerge students‘ interest in learning reading, and lack of guidance from teachers. Classroom action research was used in this research in which the data were collected from observation, interview, questionnaire and test. The subject of the study was eight grade students of junior high school in Jepara Municipality. The result showed that TBLL could improve students‘ skill in reading. The improvement could be seen from the improvement of students‘ enthusiasm in doing the activities, participating both class and task, and students‘ positive attitude. Besides that, the improvement could also be showed from students‘ average score which increased in every meeting.
