    Abstract

    This thesis is written to (1) describe whether or not and to what extent YouTube video can improve students’ listening comprehension; and (2) identify what happens when YouTube video is implemented in the listening classes. The method used in this research was a collaborative action research with a senior high school English teacher (Teacher H). The research was conducted from August 16th until September 26th 2010 at the tenth grade of SMA Batik 1 Surakarta. The research was conducted in two cycles, in which in the first and second cycles there were 2 meetings. Every cycle consisted of four steps; planning, implementing, evaluation, and reflection. The research data were collected by using techniques of observation, interview, diary, document, and test (pre-test and post-test). The data were analyzed through constant comparative method and descriptive statistics. The research findings show that YouTube video could improve: (1) students’ listening comprehension of narrative text (2) classroom situation. Related to the improvement of (1), it includes: (a) the students could answer teacher’ questions based on what they listened correctly (b) the students could determine the general idea by themselves (c) the students could determine the specific information by themselves (d) the students could summary the material of listening (e) the students could determine the sequence of events on the narrative text that they listened. Concerning on the improvement of (2), it comprises: (a) The students did not grumbling anymore when asked to do listening (b) The students also paid more attention to the lesson (c) they were more active in the listening class (d) they were easier to ask to come in front of the class to retell what had been listened (e) they also answered teacher’s question actively. I find that this research could improve students’ listening comprehension and situation of the classroom. I expect to continue doing a collaborative action research in my own classroom. I also hope that what I had done provides other teachers inspiration to conduct a collaborative action research in their classroom. It is expected that the teachers will not consider the students as something to be increased in quantity or score only but also in quality.
