This action research was carried out at SMPN 2 Banjarnegara for the students of class 8 E in the academic year of 2015/2016. It was held from March – August 2016. The research method was Classroom Action Research and it was conducted in two cycles. In collecting the data, I used interviews, observation, questionnaire, diaries, document, and test. Having collected the data, I analyzed them both qualitative and quantitative data. The qualitative data were analyzed by using Constant Comparative Method. Meanwhile, the quantitative data were analyzed by descriptive statistics. The finding of the research showed that the implementation of Round Table Technique enhanced: (1) students’ ability in generating ideas including: (a) writing main ideas; (b) writing more supporting ideas; (c) using correct cohesive devices; (d) using correct vocabularies; (e) using correct mechanics. The enhancement of the students’ scores could be proved that the mean score of the pre-test was 50.93; the post-test 1 was 64.63; the post-test 2 was 79.23. Twenty eight students or 82.35% from 32 students had fulfilled the criteria of passing grade (KKM) which was 78 and (2) enhanced the class climate including: (a) students’ attention to the teaching and learning process was getting better; (b) students got more alive condition; (c) the students’ participation was more active; (d) the time needed to write a text was shorter than before the research was conducted.
