Nevertheless, in SMA 1 Mejobo Kudus, the writer found that most of students there still get difficulties in studying writing, especially in writing recount text. it may be caused by the technique used in teaching English, especially writing recount text. The English teacher of tenth grade students of SMA 1 Mejobo Kudus use Group Discussion in teaching the students in the classroom. Group Discussion technique is catagorized as technique teaching which focuses on group work. The teacher never tries to use other technique in teaching learning process. This fact leads the writer to compare the technique that teacher use with other technique, i.e Think-Pair-Share technique. This research comparing think-pair-share and group discussion techniques on its effect to the students’ writing ability.

The subject of the research is the tenth grade students of SMA 1 Mejobo Kudus in the first academic year 2013/2014. The samples are two groups of students placed in experiment and control groups.

It is higher than t-table (tt) 2.00 in the level of significance 0.05 and the degree of freedom (df) 72, (to= 5.57 > tt= 2.00).
