The purpose of this project is to complete the final project report of English Diploma Program in SebelasMaret University of Faculty of Letters and Fine Arts. I taught writing a recount text to the 8th grade students in SMP N 2 Gondang, Sragen for 2 months. Based on the job training in SMP N 2 Gondang, Sragen, This report describedthe process of teaching writing recount text; the process of students’ writing recount text and the teacher’ evaluation. During teaching writing a recount text, I taught the generic structure and language features involving grammar, connector, conjunctions time, prepositions, adjectives and vocabulary. While the process of students’ writing, the students were asked to produce a writing recount text based in their own experience which involved several steps: prewriting, writing, revising, editing. Before they produced writing recount, they had faced several exercises in order that the students got enough knowledge in developing their own writing. Additionally, I gave the students’ result by using analytic scoring technique considering the content, organization, vocabulary, language used and mechanics. As a result, the students of SMP N 2 GondangSragen were able to write a recount text based on their own experiences. The lowest score was 60 obtained by one student; whereas the highest score were obtained by seven students with the score of 86 and the rest of the students got the average scores.
