Abstract

This research was grouped as an action research study. This research was aimed at improving the students’ speaking skills at grade VIII of MTsN Rowokele in the academic year of 2012/2013 through cue card media. It consisted of two cycles. There were four phases that consisted of planning, acting and observing, and reflecting. In conducting the research, the researcher involved 24 students of VIIIA class, one English teacher as the collaborator and the researcher. The data were obtained from the observation, interviews and tests. They, in the forms of field notes, interview transcripts and students’ scores of pre- and post-test, were analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively. The qualitative data were analyzed by adopting five steps of data analysis. They are assembling the data, coding the data, comparing the data, building interpretations and reporting the outcomes. The quantitative data were analyzed by comparing the students’ mean scores in pre- and post-test. The validity of the data was accomplished by adopting democratic validity, outcome validity, process validity, catalytic validity and dialogic validity.
