Master’s Program in Linguistics, Diponegoro University Semarang. Thesis : Dr. Suwandi, M.Pd. The research was held in Geeta School Cirebon in the first semester of academic year of 2011-2012. It started in September 2011. The subject of the research was 15 students of seventh grade Junior High School. The data were gained from three kinds of instruments: test about parts of speech, questionnaire, and observation sheet. The data were in the form of quantitative and qualitative data. The researcher did the pre-observation to detect the problem faced by students using questionnaire given to previous English teacher and students. The result of pre-observation was the students used to join the classroom activity, while the students stated that they found difficulty in making simple sentence. There were some factors caused the students found difficulty to write sentence. Based on those facts, the researcher arranged series of planning to conduct classroom action research to solve the problem and to improve the students’ learning behavior toward the English Classroom activities. The research used the research design of action research. It conducted through two cycles, which each of cycle consisted of four steps: planning, acting, observing and reflecting. The data were analized by comparing the result of pre-observation, pre-test, the 1st cycle post-test and the 2nd cycle post-test. The data were illustrated through tables and graphs. The scoring system was Fix scoring measurement; each correct arrangement of sentence can get 1 point. The result showed that the students’ scores improved well in the first and second cycles. The students’ opinion, which stated that writing English sentence, was difficult, decreased. On the other hand, the students’ attitude and response to the classroom activity increased significantly. Before the research was held, the students were really not interested in making writing activity. After they had treatment of the research the students’ learning attitude were improve well. In the 2nd cycle, there were 93% students were enthusiast to join the lesson actively, 60% students more often to ask question, 93% students submit the task on time and 100% students gave their attention to the lesson.

The highest score in the first treatment was 60; while in the second cycle were 90. The minimum standard score was 70. In conclusion, based on the result of data analysis, the ability in making simple sentence of Geeta Junior High School Cirebon 2011 was remarkably improve after the implementation of Parts of Speech Drillings. The writer suggests that the teacher can use the word order pattern: NP+AP+NP (part of Speech) in the teaching process of writing because it is very simple and understood easily by the students. This research can give basic inspiration for other researchers to conduct further CAR (classroom action research) which is dealing with parts of speech in writing activity.
