CHAPTER IINTRODUCTIONA .Background of the Problem
Nowadays, in modern society, English becomes more important as a tool of communication. English as a global language sets the important role in teachingEnglish at school from elementary school until senior high school and even inuniversity. From these facts, students are not only expected to speak English fluently but they also have to be able to fulfill four language skills; speaking, writing, reading,and listening. These four skills are integrated and related to each other.Based on KTSP, all skills in teaching and learning English that are integratedeach other must be learnt and taught by students and teacher, including writing skill.Writing will help students mastering the other skills and of course in mastery Englishcompletely. The students are sometimes afraid and shy to speak what they want tosay but they can tell what they think and what they want to say into draft or writing before speaking. Thus, if students are having problem in expressing an idea, he/shecan write it down. Then, student itself or possibly the reader will understand it.There are still some teachers who haven¶t given their attention on this casecompletely. If teacher want to help the students to be a good writer in English, he /she must be able to teach writing effectively in the classroom. Teaching writing isalways related to how to give feedback directly or indirectly on writing in a goodway, especially by the teacher.
