Abstract

This is a research on increasing the students’ skill of reading descriptive text through the use of Self-monitoring anchor charts on the seventh-grade students of SMPN 23 Pontianak in academic year 2018/2019. The method implemented in this research was a pre-experimental design with a single group of pre-test and post-test design. One seventh grade class was chosen as the sample of this research. The measurement technique was employed to find out if the self-monitoring anchor chart is effective or not in increasing students’ reading skill on descriptive text. A set of multiple-choice test was administered to the seventh-grade students. This research revealed a positive outcome. The students’ implemented the actual process of reflecting their own work in comprehending descriptive text and they also got feedback which helped them to understand the descriptive text better. This was due to the nature of the self-monitoring anchor charts that provide prior knowledge for the students to guide them through their reading process. Nevertheless, self-monitoring anchor chart is a feasible option to be applied in teaching descriptive text reading skill. Thus, the researcher recommends fellow English teachers to implement self-monitoring anchor charts as a strategy to increase the students’ reading skill since this strategy is suitable for teaching reading descriptive text that demands interactive media to attract them to focus on reading skill study.
