Abstract

It is going to be difficult to teach English in a school which has high cultured of Javanese and Islam. Besides, the school is located in a village which is far enough from the center of the city. Therefore, the students could not have enough facilities that may support their learning process. It must be realized that their interest to learn English is still under expectations. They considered English as a difficult subject so they do not like it. Then, how will they compete with billion people after they graduate? Nowadays there are many children and high school students who have excellent English skill. But, what about students in the village who are absolutely need much more support to study? The success of education could not be seen only from a certain side. The researchers try to encourage the students in MTs Ma’arif Kaliangkrik Magelang (Junior High School age level) to like English by giving an interesting way to learn descriptive text. It might be straightforward for junior high school age level, but it becomes very complicated for the students there. The researchers introduced BOSARANG (kind of puzzle of arranging people’s body) to make the learning process easier. The purpose of this study is to prove that the use of Bosarang increases students’ creativity in making descriptive text. This paper uses quasi experimental research which uses pre-test and post-test to compare the result. Based on the research, it shows that Bosarang totally increases students’ creativity.
