Abstract


The aim of this evaluative descriptive study is to describe the real life teaching of English at a junior high school in Banda Aceh. This research described the procedures used in teaching English including how the teacher taught English from the beginning to end, the teacher’s methods and techniques, and the difficulties faced by the teacher. The instruments used in collecting the data for this study were an observation sheet, an interview guide, and document analysis of the syllabus and lesson plans.  The results of this study showed that: (1) the teacher applied various procedures in teaching: (a) in opening the lesson, i.e. brainstorming students ideas related to the topic, stimulating the students to think creatively, and reviewing the previous lesson, (b) in the instructional processes, i.e. integrating the four skills namely listening, speaking, reading, and writing in the teaching process, and (c) in closing the lesson, i.e. giving opportunities to the students to ask questions, concluding the lesson, motivating and appreciating the students. (2) The methods and techniques used by the teacher were various in order to make the teaching process interesting. (3) There were some difficulties faced by the teacher in teaching including the noisy classroom and students coming in and out of the classroom. Finally, this research suggests that the teacher should be more creative and innovative in creating the lesson, should mix methods in order to create a more effective teaching-learning process and should control the students from coming in and out of the classroom too freely.
