However, English language skills specifically for MM class are still lacking, around 73.46% or 7 students stated that writing is an obstacle. Therefore, Discovery Learning (DL) research using authentic materials was applied to achieve learning outcomes and determine the improvement of students' learning outcomes, especially in composing procedure texts. Classroom action research, where each cycle has stages of planning, implementation, observation and reflection of action, was carried out at SMK Muhammadiyah Aimas through three cycles (6 meetings) involving 13 students majoring in Multi Media class X in odd semester. The teacher acted as the main researcher. Data was collected using tests and product assessment sheets. Data analysis was carried out by comparing the results in cycles I, II and III quantitatively, while observation data was investigated qualitatively. The results showed that Discovery Learning and the Use of Authentic Materials are likely to be effective in improving the learning outcomes of students in class X majoring in Multi Media. In terms of process, students felt that their learning outcomes improved from an average of 73.46 to 81.38. A score improvement was also seen in the students' test results which increased from 46.2% in cycle I to 77.23% in cycle II, and further to 81.38% in cycle III. In conclusion, Discovery Learning and Authentic Material can be an alternative effort to create meaningful experiences in creative learning, independence, and skill in communicating orally and in writing.</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> Siti Rojiyah ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 06 Oct 2023 04:51:07 +0000 Fables Writing Skills for Class VIII Students of SMPN 2 Pakuhaji Tangerang <p>The research background is that the low level of students' ability to write fables is inadequate.

Contrarily, research reveals that English proficiency among Palembang pupils’ declines. This article details a study that looked at how much EFL English majors at PGRI Palembang University improved their ability to write argumentative essays after being subjected to genre-based writing exercises with their writing instructors. The findings showed that students consistently struggled to criticize or refute opposing viewpoints and come up with more powerful rebuttals, even after being exposed to the preparation of genre-based argumentative essays. However, they were able to demonstrate development in their ability to recognize the rhetorical structures (genres) and lexicon-grammatical characteristics of the full argumentative essay. The strategy received favourable feedback from the participants. The paired sample t-test also revealed that students' post-intervention argumentative texts significantly outperformed their pre-intervention drafts. It is commonly accepted that students may regulate the linguistic aspects of the type of text with a specific communicative aim and comfortably enhance their writing skills by studying through a genre-based approach to writing. The consequences for teaching writing in an EFL setting are demonstrated in this essay. Additionally, it urges the adoption of a genre approach in EFL writing classes.</p> Ferri Hidayad, Ariya Agustin, Despita Despita, Muhammad Bambang Purwanto ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 06 Oct 2023 08:08:11 +0000 Using Small Group Discussions to Examine Students' Perceptions of Recount Text <p>The purpose of this study is that students are involved in learning reading comprehension through small group strategies in class reading and to find out students' perceptions of learning reading comprehension through small group strategies.

To overcome this problem, socialization was held which aimed to maximize writing procedural texts using Food Truck literacy media. This Community Service is located at Putra Anda Binjai Vocational School, where the Education Unit Teaching Assistance program is implemented. The methods used in this training are lectures, discussions and demonstrations.

As a Case Study <p>There have been studies which exploring students’ perception on the use of kahoot!. However, research on investigating students’ opinion on the implementation of kahoot and students’ recommendation for educational stake-holders is uncommon. This study relies on semi-structured interview data from 15 second-year students (10 female and 5 male) enrolling in the Introduction to Linguistics Class in English Education Department of STKIP Yapis Dompu. This study aims to explore the benefits of the use of kahoot, the barriers and students’ recommendation to educational stake-holders for improvement. The data were analysed using thematic analysis adapted from (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) which consists of 6 steps. The finding of this paper suggested that the implementation of kahoot in learning process had four benefits: Firstly, Kahoot creates fun and interested learning atmosphere. Secondly, it riggers students’ attention and focus. Thirdly, it facilitates comprehension of material Taught. Lastly, Kahoot! fosters positive competitiveness among students. Additionally; there were two main barriers of using kahoot in this research: firstly, limitations on internet access. Secondly, not enough time to answer. The surprising conclusion of the research was that, all participants had never been exposed to game-based learning platform during their formal school (elementary and high school); they only were only exposed to game-based learning platform at this introduction to linguistics class. Therefore; all participants highly recommended to all lecturers and teachers to game-based learning platform in their teaching. This study relied on game-based learning platform kahoot.

Three decades ago, a <em>Syariah </em>bank, PT. Bank Muamalat Indonesia (BMI). The establishment of this Indonesian <em>Syariah</em> bank was based on intensive requests from thinkers, religious leaders, and Islamic entrepreneurs regarding the importance of accommodating Muslims who wish to make financial transactions in the Indonesian financial industry by applying the principles of Islamic <em>Syariah</em>. After BMI Bank had been operating for several years, the government issued the Banking Law and, in the banking law, recognized the dual system in Indonesian banking, namely, the conventional banking system and the Syariah banking system. Next, the government also issued the <em>Syariah </em>Banking Law to regulate the <em>Syariah</em> banking operational system in Indonesia. Syariah financial institutions have developed from an institutional perspective, with many Syariah banking branch offices, capital markets, and the <em>Syariah</em> non-bank financial industry (IKNB). However, in these three decades, Islamic financial institutions controlled 10 percent of the market share in the Indonesian financial industry. In this research, a strategy was produced to accelerate the capacity of Islamic financial institutions to compete with conventional financial institutions.

This is because only a tiny segment of the population—coffee lovers—will see value in coffee as a stand-alone commodity. Indonesia is the world's largest producer of coffee, so it has the potential to grow its coffee tourism industry. Indonesia must strengthen its coffee tourism industry to combine tourism and coffee as commodities. Regarding the growth of coffee tourism in Indonesia, bibliometric analytic techniques have not yet been investigated in any studies. As a result, this topic requires research into bibliometric analytical methods. This study uses the technique of bibliometric analysis, which is used to evaluate bibliographic data found in articles or journals, to classify, measure, and analyze information found in articles such as titles, authors, keywords, research methodological approaches, data collection, and research results, and to learn more about the extent of academic research on the growth of coffee tourism in Indonesia. Studies on tourism development, coffee tourism, and Indonesia included topic areas with titles, keywords, and abstract requirements. According to the study's findings, Indonesia saw a fluctuating number of articles from 2012 to 2022 about tourism and coffee tourism growth. Elsevier was the publisher that produced the most publications on this subject, and according to the number of citations, Elsevier had the most citations overall. Then, it was discovered that P.
