Abstract

In elementary school, although English is one of the elective subjects, it is strongly recommended by the government to be taught. Nevertheless, the instruction, in the field, is not yet satisfactory. Thus, this study aims to investigate the effectiveness of project approach, as one of the alternative instructions, in encouraging students’ reading comprehension and the students’ responses toward the implementation of the approach. This is a quasi-experimental study which involved two classes with 34 students in each class as the participants. The data were obtained from tests, participant observation, interviews and questionnaires. The finding of the independent t-test computation was 0.048. This value was lower than 0.05 (p<0.05) indicating that Ho was rejected. It means that there was a significant difference in students’ post-test scores between the experimental and control group. Therefore, it can be concluded that project approach is effective in promoting students’ English skills, especially in reading comprehension. In addition, the students not only enjoyed the learning process, shown by their enthusiasm in the observation and their answers to the questionnaires and interviews, but also could finish the project well. Finally, all these indicate that implementing project approach is worth doing by teachers in their classrooms.
