First Grade of SMA N 1 BAE KUDUS (In The Academic Year of 2006-
Key words: literacy, recount text, teaching learning cycles, and the teachers’ skill.
The study is an attempt to know the teachers’ problems in applying
literacy approach to teach Recount Text to the first grade of SMA N1 BAE
Based on the research problems, this study is aimed at finding how far the
English teachers in that school know about literacy approach to teach recount text
and the difficulties they face when they teach using English for a Better Life
The approach used in this study is qualitative. The data sources are the two
teachers of English in SMA N 1 BAE KUDUS. The data are the results of
observation the researches did when the teachers teach and the results of interview
given to them.
The results show that the teachers often get difficulties in Building
Knowledge of the field (BKOF). They also do not know about how to apply
literacy in teaching learning cycles based on Kurikulum Tingkat Satuan
Pendidikan (KTSP). The teachers’ method in teaching learning is different. They
also have different teacher’s ability to interact their students.
The final conclusion is that most of the teachers still do not know about
how to apply literacy approach in the classroom. There are three (3) suggestions
proposed. First, the English teachers should be given workshop about literacy
approach. Second, the users of textbook should check the material before
teaching. Third, the teachers should more learn English for a Better Life
Textbook before using it.
