Abstract

Grammar is considered as the important aspect of communication because it is about how people are able to express their ideas or thoughts properly. It is important to construct words and sentences properly in order to convey the points effectively. As an English teacher in X Senior High School, the researcher found some problems in students’ writing that their writing scores are not satisfying although they gained high scores in reading and grammatical errors are the major problem in the student’s writing. The research was intended to improve the students’ grammar accuracy in writing through consciousness writing. The research problem is: will consciousness-raising activity help students to improve their grammar accuracy? The researcher conducted Classroom Action Research (CAR) to improve the students’ grammar accuracy. In the preliminary study, the class average percentage for students’ mistakes was 81. Meanwhile, in cycle one decreased into 65, in cycle two became 36 and in cycle three it more decreased into 34. Hence, the researcher concluded that consciousness raising approach in a form of discovery learning activity helped the students in improving their grammar accuracy in writing. Some students also stated that discovery learning activity helped them to understand their mistakes in applying the simple past tense.
