Abstract

Nowadays, students have very little interest in writing which is so important to fulfill education requirements. Students do not only lack of vocabularies but also lack of ideas and motivation. It makes them feel difficult to write. This difficulty can be seen from their low writing scores, and their passiveness in learning activity. This is influenced by the inaccurate strategy that the teacher applies in writing lessons although several methods have been applied. CTL is one of the right strategies in overcoming students’ difficulties in writing. CTL is a strategy to learning emphasizing the students’ involvement in the full process, so they can find the material studied and relate them to the real-life situations encouraging them to apply the materials in life. This is Classroom Action Research (CAR). Observation, interview, and test writing were used to collect the data. The sample was the students grade VIII-4 of SMPN 3 Siabu in the academic year of 2020/2021.
