    Abstract

    This research focuses on the implementation of strengthening teacher-student interaction in improving students’ participation in class, of X “B” class of SBBS (Sragen Bilingual Boarding School). The goals of this research are, (1) describing whether and to what extent teacher-student interaction improves the student participation in class, (2) to identify the advantages and difficulties in implementing this strategy in this research. I adopted Action Research which requires four steps, namely planning, implementing, observing, and reflecting. Various types of activities, including extracurricular activities and game-like actions are conducted during the research. The participants of the study are the tenth year students of SBBS which consists of 23 students. The methods of data collection are observation, interview, diary, photograph, pre-test, and post-test. In analyzing data I used (1) constant comparative technique by Burns (1999) for qualitative data, (2) descriptive statistic technique for quantitative data. After analyzing the data, I found out that the change in participation in class was seen clearly and all the responses from the students were positive. From the results it can be indicated that there was an improvement in students` participation in class after I strengthened teacher-student interaction in class (sometimes out of class). Moreover the average speaking score of students’ pre-test was 62.77 and the average speaking score of students’ post-test was 84.51. Summarizing the abstract, I have found that strengthening the interaction between the teacher and the students not only has improved the participation of the students in class, but it also has helped the teacher to manage the class better, become the students` best friend, and have more joyful lesson with the full attendance of active and encouraged students. Keywords: Interaction, participation, activity, AR
