Abstract

This research was conducted to find out the effectiveness of Four-Square writing method to improve students’ writing skill of descriptive texts. The subject of this research was 68 students of eighth graders of SMP Negeri 1 Patikraja, chosen randomly. There were two classes as research participants, namely class VIII D as experimental group and VIII E as control group. The data were collected by using essay test. The result of the study showed that after the treatment, there was difference in the students’ achievement in writing descriptive texts between students taught using Four-Square method and those without Four- Square method. Having the analyzed the data, the writer found that the students’ achievement in experimental group was better than that of the control group. It could be seen from the result of t-test calculation, which was 4.56 while t-table value at the level of significance α = 0.05 for degree of freedom (df) = 66 was 1.668. It means that t-test was higher than t-table (4.56 > 1.669). Therefore, it could be concluded that Four-Square writing method was effective to be used to teach descriptive texts.
