Abstract

Grammar is commonly a difficult and boring lesson for the students in English learning as the foreign language. The researcher wanted to apply a technique in order to make the learning process become more enjoyable, interesting and to increase the students’ understanding in grammar. Many techniques have been invented. However, visual aids were preferred in this study by using humorous cartoons in teaching present progressive tense for the fourth grade of elementary students. This study was intended to answer this following research question: “Does teaching present progressive tense by using humorous cartoons cause better achievement than the ordinary technique (explanation and written exercises) for the fourth grade of elementary students?” There were two groups studied, which are experimental and control groups. The experimental group got humorous cartoons in the teaching of the present progressive tense, while the control group got only explanation and exercises without any humorous cartoons in the teaching of the present progressive tense. The data were taken from the pre- and the post-tests which had been tried out with other students in a different school of more or less the same quality with the students in the studied school. The pre- and the post-test were the same. And both groups also got the same pre- and post-test. A quasi-experimental method was used in this study. As a quantitative study, the rater is the writer herself because the pre- and the post-test are objective tests. The writer analyzed and calculated the data by using some formula such as KR-21 formula, and the t-test formula. Based on the writer’s analysis, it is found that the students’ learning achievement taught using humorous cartoons had no significance different with those taught only by using explanation and exercises. The researcher found out several reasons that become the flaws in this study. They are the unsuitable humorous cartoons for the fourth grade of elementary students, the lack of time, the allocation time, and the uncolourful humorous cartoons.
