    Abstract

    The objectives of the research are: (1) to know whether the mindmapping technique is more effective than the modeling technique in teaching writing for the se venth grade students of SMPN 1 Prambon in the academic year 200 9/2010; (2) to know whether the writing skill of the students having high IQ is better than that of those having low IQ in learning English; and (3) to know whether there is an interaction betw een teaching techniques and students IQ in teaching writing for the seventh grade students of SMPN 1 Prambon in the academic year 2009/2010.

There are 14 boys and 22 girls in the seventh eight and there are 10 boys and 26 girls in the seventh nine . The seventh nine is as experimental class which was taught using mindmapping technique and the seventh eight is as control class which was taught using modeling technique. The data were in the form of quantitative data and they were taken from a test. They are the scores of students’ writing test after having nine times treatment for each class. The researcher analyzed the data using ANOVA or analysis of variance and Tukey test. Based on the result of data analysis, the research findings are: (1) The mindmapping technique is more effective than modeling technique to teach writing for the seventh grade students of junior high school; (2) The writing skill achievement of the students having high IQ is better than that of those having low IQ; and (3) There i s an interaction between teaching techniques and students’ IQ. Based on these research findings, it can be concluded that mindmapping technique is an effective technique to improve the writing skill of the seventh grade students of SMPN 1 Prambon, Nganjuk. The research result of this study implies that: (1) English teachers are suggested to use mindmapping technique to teach writing; (2) the students could use mindmapping to improve their writing ability as it can help them to generate, elaborate, and orga nize their ideas; and (3) the future researchers are expected to develop some dimensions which have not been developed in this research such as using different students’ population or students’ condition viewed from the students’ motivation or social econo mic background.
