The Example of Argumentation Paragraph


In March 2006 has been ongoing wave of Local Government Election - Election-(Governor / Lieutenant Governor, Regent / Deputy Regent, and mayor / Deputy Mayor) directly. Seen from the point of democratic procedures, direct elections have managed to achieve these goals essentially, first, produce regional leaders through a democratic election mechanism-free, fair and without violence. Second, Viewed from the angle of rotation of the interests of local leadership on a regular basis, direct election is a continuation of the practice of previous elections. But he at once put a new tradition, because for the first-time change the method from direct election by parliament towards direct elections by any citizen in an area. Third, direct elections have been laying a new foundation for the ongoing process of political education community more widely. In my view, the direct elections are one of important areas of political education for us.

The Legend of Surabaya (great story and funny in the last line)

Folklore from East Java
            A long time ago in East Java there were two strong animals, Sura and Baya. Sura was a shark and Baya was a crocodile. They lived in a sea. Actually, they were friends. But when they were hungry, they were very greedy. They did not want to share their food. They would fight for it and never stop fighting until one of them gave up.
            It was a very hot day. Sura and Baya were looking for some food. Suddenly, Baya saw a goat.“Yummy, this is my lunch,” said Baya.
“No way! This is my lunch. You are greedy! I had not eaten for two days!” said Sura.
            Then Sura and Baya fought again. After several hours, they were very tired. Sura had a plan to stop their bad behavior. “I’m tired of fighting, Baya,” said Sura.
            “Me too. What should we do to stop fighting? Do you have any idea?” asked Baya. “Yes, I do. Let’s share our territory. I live in the water, so I look for food in the sea. And you live on the land, right? So, you look for the food also on the land. The border is the beach, so we will never meet again. Do you agree?” asked Sura.
            “Hmm... let me think about it. OK, I agree. From today, I will never go to the sea again. My place is on the land,” said Baya. Then they both lived in the different places. But one day, Sura went to the land and looked for some food in the river. He was very hungry and there was not much food in the sea. Baya was very angry when he knew that Sura broke the promise.“Hey, what are you doing here? This is my place. Your place is in the sea!”
            “But, there is water in the river, right? So, this is also my place!” said Sura. Then Sura and Baya fought again. They both hit each other. Sura bit Baya's tail. Baya did the same thing to Sura. He bit very hard until Sura finally gave up. He went back to the sea. Baya was very happy. He had his place again.

Example of Background of The Reasearch


1.1.Background of the Research
            Speaking is one of four language skill, and it is one of a very important role in communication activity. Speaking is “the process of building and sharing meaning through the use of verbal and non-verbal symbol in a variety of context” (chaney, 1998, p.13). Speaking also productive oral skill and it consist of producing system verbal utterance to convey meaning. This skill needs some ability such as good vocabulary, confident and motivation to practice, so that someone’s should be easier to learn English.
            Teaching speaking needs effort, moreover if the students do not use English in their daily as well. The students do not have courage to speak without enough knowledge and bravery, besides there are many aspects that discourage the students to speak. As already known, most of the English learners, especially the students in senior high school level got the difficulties to speak. This matter is caused by many factors, like as internal factors from student themselves, like not confident, not fluent, scared in mispronounce when they spoke with the other, or they feel that their vocabulary is limited to speak in front of people. But failure of students in performing their speaking is also caused by external factors like inappropriate teaching ways or less effective method that is used by teacher at school to improve student’s ability in speaking.
            The researcher was interesting to improve students in speaking ability because there were some problems that face d by students when they won to speak. There are two problems that found by the researcher such as low in vocabulary and not confident. These problems are feel all of the student at senior high school level when they start to speak. Therefore the researcher tried to find a technique to solve some problem in speaking.
            The other hand if talking about problem, low in vocabulary is the biggest problem that happens for student at senior high school level. Therefore most of student’s unconfident to practice their speaking ability. Low in vocabulary also will make the students low motivation, so that should be effect to their knowledge and capability to speak well.
            The researcher recommends one of the techniques that can be used by the teacher to improve students’ ability in speaking skill. It is dialog memorization technique. Dialog memorization is a visual technique for vocabulary expansion and develops confident. The other hand, dialog memorization also helps students to know many types of text, such as narration, description, and exposition by teacher explanation. So that, the students can increases their knowledge about something and should not be boring in teaching-learning process.
            The dialog memorization technique also one f the techniques that will make teaching process successful. It will help student in some cases, such as the students should be know how to communicate politely. Every dialog that will give to the students must be sensor by the teacher, and appropriate with the curriculum at senior high school level. The basic ideas why do we use this technique because this technique will help students to speak fluently and politely.
            Base on the statements above, the researcher choose the title of this proposal is improving students’ in speaking ability by using dialog memorization technique.
