This research was aimed to find out the effectiveness of guided question technique on students’ writing skill of recount text at the second grade students of SMAN 3 Kediri by using Guiding Questions technique or not. To do so, the researcher used factual recount text. In addition, the researcher employed quantitative research with one group pretest and posttest.
Through clustering sampling, the researcher took XI IPS 3 students of SMAN 3 Kediri to be involved in this research. According to the result of statistical calculation, it showed that t-test is 4.755 and the t-table with degree of freedom 34 is 2.042 at the level of significance of 5%. It means t-test was higher than t-table (4,755 > 2,042). It means that to was higher than tt (to >tt).
Thus, the alternative hypothesis (Ha) is accepted and null hypothesis (H0) is rejected. Therefore, it can be concluded that the use of Guiding Questions technique in teaching writing improves the students’writing performance. Moreover, out of all the writing aspects, content and organization are two of the highest improved aspects. Hence, Guiding Questions technique is recommended as a good technique in teaching writing.
