Abstract


Penelitian ini bertujuan mendeskripsikan dinamika partisipasi siswa dalam belajar karangan argumentasi melalui lokakarya menulis. Subjek penelitian adalah 32 siswa kelas XI SMA. Angket dan observasi digunakan untuk mengumpulkan data, dan pekerjaan siswa juga dikumpulkan untuk memperkuat analisa data. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa partisipasi siswa dalam membangun wacana argumentasi lisan dan tulis meningkat sepanjang siklus pembelajaran. Siswa berbicara lebih banyak ketika saling berargumen atas sebuah isu, dan menjadi lebih aktif ketika menulis secara kolaboratif dengan siswa yang lain sehingga kemampuan siswa dalam mengartikulasikan pemikiran mereka ke dalam karangan argumentasi meningkat ke arah yang lebih baik. Hal ini ditunjukkan oleh peningkatan pada rata rata nilai karangan argumentasi dan kualitas argumentasi mereka.
