Abstract

Reading is one of important skills to master English. There are many techniques that can be applied to teach reading in the classroom, yet by applying the effective technique for teaching reading will be able to improve students’ reading ability. Based on the writer’s experience and observation, the elementary English teacher whom the writer observed, tended to use conventional technique in teaching reading - whole language. Therefore, the writer administered a quantitative study to compare the effect of phonics instruction and whole language on the reading accuracy of second grade elementary students. This study was conducted in the private elementary school in Surabaya. Two techniques were used; Phonics Instruction and Whole Language Instruction. The techniques were applied in different classes to find out whether there is significant difference between reading accuracy of second grade elementary students who are taught Phonics Instruction and students who are taught Whole Language Instruction will be accepted or not. The result of the T-test: two samples assuming unequal variances showed that t-stat was lower than t-critical (0.490 < 2.014). Therefore the null hypothesis was accepted which stated there is no significant difference between reading accuracy of second grade elementary students who are taught Phonics Instruction and students who are taught Whole Language Instruction. In this study the treatments were only done in three times, the writer suggested to conduct six or more treatments for the further studies to get better result and more insight of the process.
