Abstract

The objective of this study is to see whether there is any significant difference in the improvement of English speaking ability between the students who are taught by using the scientific approach and those who are taught without using the scientific approach. The population of the study is seventh grade students of SMP ISLAM PLUS ASSALAMAH in the academic year of 2017/2018. When the writer is conducting the study, the students learned about the descriptive text and physical appearances. The number of the population is 58 students divided into two classes. The writer conducted the research in two classes, involving Al Hadi class for the experimental group and Al Mustofa class for the control group. The writer also used purposive sample method in choosing the sample. The samples is 30 students from AL Hadi class and 28 students from Al Mustofa class. The experimental group is taught by using the scientific method and the control group was taught by using conventional one.As the research design, the writer used an experimental study with Pre-test Post-test Nonequivalent-Group Design. The research instruments used are tried-out, tests, and observation journal. The result of the test is analyzed using t-test formula. The posttest mean results show that the experimental group is higher than control group, which is proved by the posttest-score mean of the experimental group 61,73 and the control group 49,43. The T-Test result from the score increase of experimental group is higher 12,74 than the control group. Also, the tcount is 8,50 with sig. 0,000. While, tvalueof the table is 2,01. It means that the tcount > ttable (8,05>2,01) and its significant value is less than 0,05 (p=0,000<0,05). The result implied that there is significant differences in the gain score of learning result in the experimental group than control group. Based on the result above, the scientific approach is more effective to improve the speaking competence, compared to the use of KTSP. The writer suggested that the teacher can implement the scientific approach to improve the student’s competence in speaking English.
