Abstract

This research is focused on Grammar, especially the present continuous tense. Based on the preliminary research process, it appear that learning the present continuous tense is not easy, in the fact many students got difficulty in understanding and applying of using the present continuous tense, because of those, students could not express and develop their idea and their understanding about present continuous tense. In this research, the researcher implemented WAYD game in learning the present continuous tense to improve the students’ ability in understanding, memorizing, and identifying the present continuous tense. The objectives of this research are: (1) To describe how “What Are You Doing” game technique is implemented in junior high school. (2) To discuss how “What Are You Doing” game technique can improve students in learning the present continuous tense. The research design was classroom action research that consists of three cycles. Observation, test, questionnaire, and field notes were used to collect the data. This research was conducted in SMPN 01 Donorojo Jepara in the academic year 2014/2015 in eight grade students. The implementation of WAYD game in learning the present continuous tense on the eight grade students of SMPN 01 Donorojo Jepara in the academic year of 2014/2015 was conducted in three cycles including cycle one, cycle two, and cycle three. The participant of this research was 38 students in class VIIIth D. The result of this research showed that there was improvement of students’ ability in answering questions about the present continuous tense after being taught using WAYD game. It could be seen from the result of the test and observation from the first cycle to third cycle. The students’ participant in the whole teaching learning process got improvement in every cycle. The lowest average score of students’ participation was 64% in pre cycle. The highest average score of students’ participation was 86.67% in third cycle. The students’ participation in teaching learning process got improvement and it was followed by improving the students’ score in answering questions about the present continuous tense. The lowest mean of students score was 65.51 in pre cycle. The highest mean of students score was 81.53 in third cycle.
