    Rahajeng Gienovita Anggraeni. S891408037. DESIGNING AN ENGLISH TASKBOOK AS A SUPPLEMENTARY SOURCE BASED ON TASK BASED LEARNING APPROACH (A Research and Development Study at the Eighth Grade Students of SMP Negeri 5 Surakarta). First Supervisor: Dra. Diah Kristina M.A., Ph.D. Second Supervisor: Dr. Abdul Asib M.Pd. A Thesis: English Education Department, Teacher Training and Education Faculty, Graduate Program, Sebelas Maret University, Surakarta. This study was aimed to (1) investigate the quality of the existing materials to teach English for the eighth grade students of SMP Negeri 5 Surakarta, and (2) design an English supplementary textbook for the eighth grade students of SMP Negeri 5 Surakarta. A Research and Development study was conducted by doing 2 steps in the implementation; (a) exploration stage, which consisted of library research, book analysis, and need analysis. (b) model development stage, which consisted of designing the draft prototype, experts judgment, try out, and final product. The data were collected by doing document analysis, observation, questionnaire, interview, expert’s judgment sheet and focus group discussion. The result of exploration stage showed that the existing English materials in the 8th grade students of SMP 5 Surakarta had some weaknesses which led to the less effectiveness in teaching and learning process. Thus, the teacher should find related materials from another source which expectedly could overcome the weaknesses. After analyzing the students’ needs, lacks, and wants through questionnaire and interview, the researcher designed an English task-book as a supplementary source based on task-based learning methodology which provided similar stages with the methodology used in the curriculum but emphasized the students to use English in completing the tasks. Furthermore, it could stimulate the students to be more active and reaching the goal to teach English in a communicative way. In the development stage, the researcher designed the prototype based on the result of exploration stage and some theories which were found in the library research. The prototype then was evaluated and validated by two experts in TEFL. Some revisions were found in the evaluation and the researcher revised the prototype before trying it out to the students to get the feasibility. After the try out, focus group discussions were conducted to do a crosscheck and questionnaires were delivered to the students to get some feedbacks toward the prototype. The results of FGD and questionnaires were used as a guidance to revise the prototype into a final product.
