Abstract

Penelitian ini bermula dari suatu kondisi yang terjadi pada siswa kelas 3 dari SDIT Al Kamilah Semarang tahun ajaran 2012/2013 yang sering terlihat tidak tertarik pada pelajaran Bahasa Inggris karena metode pengajaran yang digunakan kurang kreatif. Dalam hal ini, penulis melakukan penelitian untuk mengetahui permasalahan yang terjadi pada siswa-siswa tersebut dalam menguasai kosakata bahasa Inggris. Penulis menerapkan metode TPR (total physical response), jadi para siswa dapat belajar bahasa Inggris sambil melakukan gerakan-gerakan fisik. Maka penulis dapat membuktikan bahwa mengajarkan kosakata dalam bahasa Inggris menggunakan TPR dapat meningkatkan minat siswa dan penguasaan kosakata. Penelitian ini merupakan PTK (Penelitian Tindakan Kelas) yang menyertakan media untuk menciptakan proses belajar mengajar yang efektif. Instrument yang digunakan untuk mengumpulkan data antara lain tes tertulis, quessioner, dan daftar penilaian observasi. Data yang diperoleh dianalisis secara kuantitatif dan kualitatif. Dari hasil pengamatan, penulis menemukan bahwa nilai sikap siswa meningkat dari siklus 1 ke siklus 2. Rentang nilai peningkatan yaitu antara 0,5 dan 1,5 untuk smua jenis sikap. Sementara itu, nilai rata-rata kosakata siswa juga menunjukkan peningkatan yang tipis, yaitu 74,06 di pre-test menjadi 74,50 di siklus 1. Namun, nilai rata-rata kemudian meningkat tajam di siklus 2 menjadi 80 dan semakin meningkat lagi menjadi 97,63. Dari hasil tersebut, penulis menyimpulkan bahwa TPR meningkatkan minat siswa dan penguasaan kosakata siswa.
