    ABSTRACT SUPRAPTI, S891202060. 2016. The Effectiveness of Self-directed Learning Strategy to Teach Writing Viewed from Students’ Creativity. (An Experimental Research at the Eighth Grade Students of SMP N 3 Jatipuro in the Academic Year of 2016/2017). First consultant : Dr. Abdul Asib, M.Pd; second consultant : Dr. Ngadiso, M.Pd. Thesis : Surakarta, English Education Department, Graduate Program, Sebelas Maret University, 2016. The objectives of the research are to examine whether: (1) Self-directed Learning Strategy is more effective than Teacher-directed Learning Strategy to teach writing at the eighth grade students of SMP N 3 Jatipuro in the academic year of 2016/2017; (2) The students having high creativity have better writing skill than those having low creativity at the eighth grade students of SMP N 3 Jatipuro in the academic year of 2016/2017; and (3) there is an interaction between teaching strategy and students’ creativity in teaching writing at the eighth grade students of SMP N 3 Jatipuro in the academic year of 2016/2017. This experimental research was carried out at SMP N 3 Jatipuro in the academic year of 2016/2017. The population of the research was the eighth grade students, consisting of 96 students, which are divided into four classes. A lottery was given to choose the experimental and control class. The samples of the research were two classes, VIIIA consisting of 24 students as an experimental class and VIIIB consisting of 24 students as a control class. The sampling technique that was used in this research was cluster random sampling. The researcher gained quantitative data for the research. They were the students’ score of creativity and the score of students’ writing test after having eight times treatment for each class. The data were analyzed by using Multifactor Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) test of 2x2 and Tukey test. The research finding shows: (1) Self-directed Learning is more effective than Teacher-directed Learning Strategy to teach writing at the eighth grade students of SMP N 3 Jatipuro; (2) The students having high creativity have better writing skill than that of those having low creativity at the eighth grade students of SMP N 3 Jatipuro; and (3) There is an interaction between teaching strategy and students’ creativity in teaching writing at the eighth grade students of SMP N 3 Jatipuro. Referring to the research finding, it can be concluded that Self-directed Learning Strategy is an effective strategy to teach writing at the eighth grade students of SMP N 3 Jatipuro in the academic year of 2016/2017. However, in the implementation of the strategy, a teacher must consider about the students’ condition, in this case their level of creativity. As proved in the research, creativity influences the students’ writing skill. By considering the students’ level of creativity, a teacher can choose the strategy he/she uses properly to teach writing in order to improve the students’ skill on writing. Keywords: writing skill, Self-directed Learning Strategy, Teacher-directed Learning Strategy, creativity, and experimental research.
