Abstract


his paper focuses on the problem of class teaching and solutions through classroom action research. The main problem in teaching, namely students are less motivated to learn and therefore their English language skills are still lacking. From these two problems, we carried out several activities ranging from observation, interviews, to teaching in the classroom with the blended learning model, then discussing what had been done to find out the root of the problem. This action research uses the design of “action research spiral structure” advocated by Stringer (2007) which consists of three levels, look, think and act. The results show progress in teaching where students’ summative grades are higher than the minimum requirement of completeness scores. This progress is obtained through transformation in teaching techniques by creating student-centered classes by involving them in class discussions, interacting, and integrating LMS Edmodo into the learning so that it becomes more interesting, interactive, and resourceful.
