Junaedy Junaedy


Writing is a linguistic activity that plays an important role in the dynamics of
human civilization. Through writing activities, people can also benefit for their
development. Unfortunately, English lessons at Ambulu 2 Junior High School
showed indications of a decline. This is a classroom action research that aimed
to find out how the implementation of mind mapping learning models can
improve English achievement of the seventh grade students of Class VII-C at
SMPN 2 Ambulu. The results showed that learning with the Mind Mapping
model had a positive impact in improving student learning outcomes which
was marked by an increase in student’s achievement in each cycle, that is cycle
I (61.76%), cycle II (76.47%), cycle III ( 94.12%). Likewise, the application of
the Mind Mapping model can improve student learning activities as indicated
by the score of observations showing an increase in the percentage of student
activity, that is cycle I (23.53%), cycle II (73.53%) and cycle III (91.18). This means that the mind mapping learning model is good to be applied in teaching and
learning activities in English materials for Preparing Simple Descriptive Texts.
