Abstrak

An essay is a kind of discourse. Essay had good aim that is to encourage students to develop ideas and concepts with the direction of little more than their own thoughts. It should have a good construction and need the cohesion and coherence to be unified. To find the relation within the text cannot be representing by grammatical structure, but it depends on non-structural resources that can be found by analyzing textual meaning. These ways are by using theme and rheme and thematic progression. Theme is the given information serving as “the point of departure of a message. Thematic progression contributes to the cohesive development of a text, and then produces a coherent whole the text. This research aims to find out the type of theme, thematic progression and the similarities and the differences of thematic progression in the male and female students’ essay in Academic Writing 1 of the English Education Department of Teacher Training and Education Faculty of Muria Kudus University. This is qualitative content analyzis research. The data of this research is thematic progression, and the data source is the male and female students’ essay in Academic Writing 1 of the English Education Department of Teacher Training and Education Faculty of Muria Kudus University. There are ten students’ essay consists of five male and five female students’ essay. Based on the analyzing of the data, The type of themes found in the male and female students’ essay are in the male students’ essay the percentage of topical theme is 69.48%, the textual theme is 28.64%, the interpersonal theme is 1,88%, the marked theme is only 3.66% and the unmarked theme is 96.34%. Whereas, in the female students’ essay the percentage of topical theme is 62.80%, the textual theme is 33.49%, the interpersonal theme is 3.72%, the marked theme is only 3.88% and the unmarked theme is 96.12%. The thematic progression in male students essay are for the re-iteration is 8.33%, the zigzag is 58.34%, blending is 25% and un-clear is thematic progression 8.33%. While, the percentages of thematic progression in the female students’ essay are for re-iteration is 10.71%, the zigzag is 32.15%, blending 46.43% and un-clear thematic progression 10.71%. Based on the data above, the similarity is both students’ essay is the lowest number and percentage of thematic progression is re-iteration. The second similarity is there is no multiple theme. The last point of all of the similarities is more than 25% of all students’ essay are constructed in blending thematic progression. Second is about the difference. First, the biggest number of thematic progression in the male students’ essay is from zigzag theme. Meanwhile in the female students’ essay is blending. The last is male students’ essay has >10% (less than 10%) of unclear thematic progression while in female students’ essay has <10 (more than 10%). Therefore, I suggest that the students, especially English Education Department students should explore their knowledge about how to make a good essay. Moreover, the lecturer of English Education Department, they should know well about the system of theme and rheme and thematic progression exactly when they teach about how to create a good text. For the next researchers, they should continue and develop this research, for example by making research about the system of thematic progression but in other written discourse.
