Text  1 is for questions number 1-5.

Icebergs are mountains of freshwater ice floating in the ocean. They are huge chunks broken off from the great masses of land ice called glaciers.

Almost all of Greenland and Antarctica are covered by glaciers the year round. Glaciers also cover parts of Alaska. They are formed by layers of packed snow. Glacier may be thousands of meters thick. Their front ends, or tongues, reach down to the sea. At the coast the tips of the tongues break off, plunge into the oceans, and become icebergs. This process is called calving.

When calving occurs, a loud cracking noise fills the air. Sometimes a low rumbling can be heard for hours before the ice actually breaks away. People close enough can hear the hissing of air as it escapes from bubbles bursting in the ice along the break.

Glaciers calve all year round. Just as many icebergs break off in winter as in summer. But in winter their passageway to open the sea is often jammed with masses of frozen seawater. Icebergs pile up behind this jam of sea ice. In the spring, when the ice block is broken, a whole fleet of icebergs may sail out toward the open ocean.

Icebergs from the eastern coast of Greenland drift southward. They are carried by the Greenland Current, which then swings them northward around the tip of the island. Part of the way up the coast the icebergs are caught in the cold Labrador Current and carried southward toward Newfound-land

On the way, most of the icebergs become grounded among the many islands and bays along the Labrador coast. The others float on toward the open sea. Off Newfoundland they are caught by a warm current from the south called the Gulf Stream. Icebergs that do not ground and remain in the Labrador Current often enter the lanes used by ships crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

An iceberg starts to break up almost as soon as it is afloat. Cracks appear and become filled with water from ice that melts during the day. When this melted water freezes at night, it expands and widens the cracks. The ice is weakened, and pieces of iceberg break off and float away. The iceberg becomes smaller and smaller. Most icebergs melt completely within a few days of entering the Gulf Stream

My neighbour’s children love playing hide-and-seek as all children do, but no one expected that a game they played last week would be reported in the local newspaper.

One afternoon, they were playing in the street just outside the post office. Young Ian, who is only five years old found the perfect place to hide. His sister, Janet, had shut her eyes and was counting up to ten when Ian noticed that the small metal door of the letter-box had been left open. The postman had just taken all the letters out and had gone into the post office to see if there were any parcels. Ian climbed into the letter-box and pulled the door from the inside so hard that it locked. Soon realizing what he had done, he became very frightened and started crying. Meanwhile, Janet was looking for him everywhere but could not find him. It was lucky she happened to stop outside the letter-box and hear her brother’s cries. She immediately ran to tell the postman who hurried out to unlock the metal door. Ian was now free, but he had had such a bad fright that he could not stop crying.

Divorce May Mean Happier Lives for the Children

Divorce changes childhood but not necessarily for the worse. Many children from broken homes go on establish loving relationships with both their parents.

It’s difficult for children to be party to any ongoing dispute between parents.

One child spoke of the “Bermuda Triangle” – the mythical space between the homes of her parents into which socks and schoolbooks, game kit and pencil sharpeners always seemed to disappear. Another child complain bitterly that one mother refuse to let her on the weekends she spent with her dad. They hated being told secrets and carrying messages to and from between their parents. Worrying about how kids will be affected by divorce often leads parents into crooked thinking.

What matters is overcoming and dealing with those difficulties. In life we are always going to face difficulties and that we should never have problems is not a good way at looking at childhood.

Rather than wringing their hands about the harmful effects of splitting up, parents can be positive and look at strategies for dealing with problems that might arise. As a proof, a lot of parents that we interviewed stayed together longer than they have done though they were so worried about the effect of divorce on their thinking that any kind of adolescent rebellion was because of the divorce.

What we are saying is that young people can strive under these circumstances and that it’s the quality of the relationship that matter. Divorce might be a whole lot better than a really grim family situation and children can often be extraordinarily happy and contented after their parents’ divorce

41. Read the passage then correct the words which have wrong spelling.

A tsunami is a series of waves generated when water in a lake or in the sea is rapidly displace on a massive scale. Eartquake, landslide, volcanic eruptions and large meteorite impacts all have the potential to generate a tsunami. The effacts of a tsunami can range from unnoticable to devastating.

The term tsunami comes from the Japanese language meaning harbour (‘tsu’) and wave (‘nami’). Although in Japanese tsunami is used for both the singgular and plural, in English tsunamis is well-establised as the plural. The term was created by fishermen who retuned to port to find the area surrounding the harbour devastated, although they had not been aware of any wave in the open water.

            How was the plastic invented?

Today, plastic has become an integral part of our life. Its uses are endless. Transparent plastics are used for making lenses and the windows of aeroplanes. Polythene bags, again a plastic product, are now  being used in almost all walks of life. Articles of domestic use like buckets, cups, brushes, combs, cabinets for radios and transistors etc, are also being made from plastics. Toys and sports goods made from plastic have flooded the markets every where. The yarn for making terylene cloth is in fact made from plastic. Today scientists have even succeeded in developing heat insulating plastics. Foam cushions, seats in trains cars and aeroplanes – all are made from plastics.

Now, plastic are used as surgical aids also. There is hardly any field of life in which plastics are not used

The manufacture of plastic in commercial scale was started for the first one by Leo Hendrik Backeland. He made it form phenol formaldehyde. Subsequently new techniques were developed for the production of the plastics. Today scientist have discovered many raw materials which are used in the making of various kinds of plastic products.

The word “plastic’ has originated from the Greek word ‘plastikos’ which means to mould. It is made from simple organic chemicals. It has many varieties and is available in many colors and varieties. The plastic was invented by Alexander Parkes of England in 1862. in those days it was called ‘parkesine’ after him. In fact, this plastic was nitro-cellulose made soft by putting oil and camphor into it.

How Planes Fly

a plane needs air pressure under their wings to stay up in the air as they move forward the higher air pressure underneath their wings pushes them upward and gives them lift

the smooth streamlined shape of the plane allows air to fly easily over its surface this helps to reduce the drag causes by the air pushing against the plane and allows it to move rapidly through the air

planes move forward using engines this movement is called thrust moving forward keeps a stream of moving air passing over the wings which allows the plan to stay up in the air if the engines fall the plane will begin to descend very quickly

A. Pengantar

    Rencana Pelaksanaan Pembelajaran (RPP) adalah rencana yang menggambarkan prosedur dan pengorganisasian pembelajaran untuk mencapai satu kompetensi dasar (KD) yang ditetapkan dan dijabarkan dalam silabus. Lingkup RPP paling luas mencakup satu KD yang terdiri atas sejumlah indikator untuk satu kali  pertemuan atau lebih (Petunjuk Teknik Pengembangan RPP, Ditjen Pembinaan SMA, 2010). RPP dikembangkan dari silabus, dan silabus dikembangkan dari standar isi (SI) yang terdapat di dalam Permendiknas Nomor 22/2006.

Tidak ada format baku yang disepakati untuk digunakan di sekolah secara nasional. Masing-masing sekolah dapat menggunakan format yang berbeda. Hal itu dimungkinkan karena dengan otonomi yang dimilikinya, yang tercermin dari diterapkannya Kurikulum Tingkat Satuan Pendidikan (KTSP), masing-masing sekolah dapat mengembangakan RPP dengan format yang dianggapnya cocok. Format RPP di atas merupakan salah satu contoh.

Komponen RPP adalah (1) identitas, (2) standar kompetensi, (3) kompetensi dasar, (4) indikator, (5) materi ajar, (6) metode pembelajaran, (7) prosedur pembelajaran, (8) media pembelajaran, (9) sumber belajar, dan (10) penilaian.


B. Identitas

Identitas RPP meliputi: satuan pendidikan, kelas, semester, mata pela­jaran, keterampilan berbahasa, genre, topik, pertemun ke-, dan alokasi waktu. Pencantuman unsur keterampilan berbahasa, genre, dan topik adalah pilihan (optional) – boleh dicantumkan dan boleh tidak dicantumkan.

C. Standar Kompetensi

Standar kompetensi (SK) merupakan kualifikasi kemam­puan minimal peserta didik yang menggambarkan penguasaan pengetahuan, sikap, dan keterampilan yang diharapkan dicapai pada setiap kelas dan/atau semester pada suatu mata pelajaran. SK diambil dari SI yang terdapat dalam Permendiknas Nomor 22 Tahun 2006. Jenis genre (report, narrative dan analytical exposition) dapat ditulis semua seperti dalam contoh RPP di atas karena pada bagian “identitas” sudah disebutkan jenis genre-nya, yaitu analytical exposition. Bila pada bagian “identitas” tidak disebutkan jenis genre-nya, pada bagian SK cukup ditulis salah satu jenis genre, yaitu analytical exposition agar pembaca tahu bahwa jenis genre yang dikembangkan adalah analytical exposition.


D. Kompetensi Dasar

Kompetensi dasar (KD) adalah sejumlah kemampuan yang harus dikuasai peserta didik dalam mata pelajaran ter­tentu sebagai rujukan penyusunan indikator kompe­tensi dalam suatu pelajaran. Sebagaimana SK, KD juga diambil dari SI yang terdapat dalam Permendiknas Nomor 22 Tahun 2006. Jenis genre (report, narrative dan analytical exposition) dapat ditulis semua seperti dalam contoh RPP di atas karena pada bagian “identitas” sudah disebutkan jenis genre-nya, yaitu analytical exposition. Bila pada bagian “identitas” tidak disebutkan jenis genre-nya, pada bagian SK cukup ditulis salah satu jenis genre, yaitu analytical exposition agar pembaca tahu bahwa jenis genre yang dikembangkan adalah analytical exposition.


E. Indikator

Indikator kompetensi adalah perilaku yang dapat diukur dan/atau diobservasi untuk menunjukkan ketercapaian kompetensi dasar tertentu yang menjadi acuan pengembangan materi ajar dan penilai­an mata pelajaran. Indikator pencapaian kompetensi dirumuskan dengan menggunakan kata kerja opera­sional yang dapat diamati dan diukur. Dalam merumuskan indikator perlu diperhatikan beberapa ketentuan sebagai berikut:

  1. Rumusan indikator harus relevan dengan KD-nya;
  2. Indikator harus dirumuskan dalam jumlah yang cukup untuk menunjukkan ketercapaian kompetensi minimal dalam KD;
  3. Indikator dirumuskan dengan menggunakan kata kerja operasional yang dapat diamati dan diukur;
  4. Setiap satu rumusan indikator hanya memuat satu perilaku;
  5. Rumusan indikator dibedakan dengan rumusan dalam penilaian.

Kesalahan umum yang sering dibuat oleh guru dalam merumuskan indikator (dari suatu kompetensi dasar) adalah sebagai berikut.

  1. Rumusan indikator tidak relevan dengan rumusan kompetensi dasarnya;
  2. Indikator dirumuskan secara tidak memadai dalam jumlah;
  3. Rumusan indikator tidak terkait dengan kegiatan pembelajaran bahasa;
  4. Terdapat lebih dari satu perilaku dalam satu rumusan indikator;
  5. Indikator dirumuskan dengan menggunakan kata kerja yang tidak terukur;
  6. Guru tidak dapat membedakan antara rumusan indikator dan bahasa evaluasi.

Berikut ini diberikan beberapa contoh indikator yang kurang tepat, yang dirumuskan oleh guru.

  1. Memahami makna teks bacaan naratif (kata kerja yang tidak operasional dan tidak terukur);
  2. Mengisi titik-titik dengan kata atau frasa yang tepat (bahasa evaluasi);
  3. Menyebutkan dan menjelaskan makna ungkapan (mengandung dua perilaku);
  4. Menyebutkan langkah-langkah membuat nasi goreng (di luar kegiatan bahasa);
  5. Menjelaskan fungsi sosial teks deskriptif (kognitif teoretik).

Di bawah ini diberikan contoh rumusan indikator yang benar untuk empat keterampilan berbahasa, khususnya untuk teks monolog yang panjang (longer monologue texts). Untuk jenis teks lain, seperti teks interpersonal, teks transaksional, dan teks fngsional pendek, rumuan indikatornya (bisa) berbeda.

1. Listening

  1. Menunjukkan gagasan utama (main idea) suatu teks;

Indikator-indikator di atas tidak disusun secara acak (randomly arranged) melainkan disusun secara logis dengan mengikuti hukum alam (sunnatullah) yang didasarkan pada psikologi gestalt. Oleh karena itu, tidak logis (dan tidak direkomendasikan) apa bila ada guru menempatkan indikator nomor 3.g (pronunciation pada speaking) pada urutan pertama, menggantikan butir 3.a. (main idea).

Indikator dapat dirumuskan dengan mempertimbangkan minimal dua sumber praktis, yaitu keterampilan mikro/makro berbahasa (Brown, H. Douglas. 2004. Language Assessment:Principles and Classroom Prctice. New York: Longman, halaman 121-122, 142-143, 187-188, dan 221) dan standar kompetensi lulusan (SKL) yang dikeluarkan oleh pemerintah menjelang ujian nasional (UN), di samping mematuhi hakikat berbahasa yang terdapat dalam teori berbahasa mutakhir (dengan pendekatan komunikatif).


F. Materi Ajar

Secara umum materi ajar memuat fakta, konsep, prinsip, dan pro­sedur yang relevan, dan ditulis dalam bentuk butir-butir sesuai dengan rumusan indikator pencapaian kompe­tensi. Khusus dalam pembelajaran bahasa Inggris, materi ajar untuk keterampilan reseptif (listening dan reading) berbentuk teks yang diikuti dengan sejumlah exercises yang relevan dengan rumusan indikator. Untuk materi ajar bahasa yang bersifat produktif (speaking dan writing), materi ajar berupa the expected texs yang dibuat oleh guru atau yang diambil dari sumber tertentu, yang diikuti dengan langkah-langkah yang dilakukan untuk menghasilkan teks tersebut. Di samping itu, materi ajar juga memuat penjelasan teoretis secara singkat yang terkait dengan isi indikator kompetensi. Untuk reading comprehension, misalnya, materi juga memuat penjelasan tentang  bagaimana cara menemukan main idea dalam suatu teks atau paragraf, menunjukkan reference dalam suatu teks, dan menjelaskan makna ungkapan dalam teks. Materi ajar tersebut hendaknya diambil dari berbagai sumber pembelajaran yang variatif dan up to date.

Materi ajar dapat ditempatkan langsung pada bagian “Materi Ajar” (bila volumenya tidak terlalu besar), tapi dapat pula ditempatkan pada lampiran tersendiri (bila volumenya terlalu besar) yang merupakan bagian tak terpisahkan dari RPP. Pada bagian “Materi Ajar” disebutkan bahwa materi terlampir.

Kesalahan umum yang dibuat oleh para guru adalah sebagai berikut, khususnya untuk RPP reading. Pada bagian “Materi Ajar” guru menuliskan: (1) lihat LKS, atau (2) teks (recount), tanpa menunjukkan teks-nya, atau (3) teks (recount), dengan menunjukkan teks-nya tetapi tidak menyertakan exercisenya, atau (4) teks (recount), dengan menunjukkan teks-nya yang diikuti dengan sejumlah exercise tetapi tidak ada penjelasan tentang bagaimana exercise tersebut diselesaikan (penjelasan teoretis).


G. Metode Pembelajaran

Metode pembelajaran digunakan oleh guru untuk mewujudkan suasana belajar dan proses pembela­jaran agar peserta didik mencapai kompetensi dasar melalui seperangkat indikator yang telah ditetapkan. Pemi­lihan metode pembelajaran disesuaikan dengan situ­asi dan kondisi peserta didik, serta karakteristik dari setiap indikator dan kompetensi yang hendak dicapai pada setiap mata pelajaran.

Lepas dari berbagai istilah yang berbeda-beda yang ada dalam literatur, seperti approach, method, technique, strategy, model, dan lain sebagainya, disarankan agar pada bagian “Metode Pembelajaran” guru menuliskan nama metode yang jumlahnya hanya satu, yang tidak bersifat terlalu umum (pendekatan komunikatif, misalnya) dan terlalu spesifik (tanya jawab, misalnya). Pemilihan “metode pembelajaran” hendaknya yang mengandung langkah-langkah tertentu, yang akan direalisasikn dalam bagaian “Prosedur Pembelajaran”. Contoh nama metode yang dimaksud antara lain adalah inquiry-based teaching, role play, jig-saw, focus group discussion, problem-based learning, dan project-based learning.

Kesalahan umum yang dibuat oleh guru pada bagian ini adalah menuliskan (1) nama “metode” yang terlalu umum, yang tidak memiliki langkah-langkah yang konkret – seperti communicative approach, contextual teaching and learning, dan cooperative learning; atau (2) nama “metode” yang terlalu spesifik, yang juga tidak mengimplikasikan adanya langkah-langkah pembelajaran – seperti ceramah, tanya jawab, demonstrasi, drilling, dan diskusi kelompok; atau (3) nama “metode” yang sebenarnya merupakan tahapan pembelajaran – seperti three phase technique.


H. Prosedur Pembelajaran

Pada bagian ini guru menuliskan prosedur pembelajaran yang pada umumnya terdiri atas tiga fase utama, yaitu pendahuluan, kegiatan inti, dan penutup. Fase pendahuluan dan penutup terdiri atas sejumlah langkah yang jenis dan jumlahnya relatif sama untuk hampir semua jenjang pendidikan dan mata pelajaran (lihat contoh RPP pada bagian 1 di atas). Pendahuluan merupakan kegiatan awal dalam suatu pertemuan pembelajaran yang ditujukan un­tuk membangkitkan motivasi dan memfokuskan perhatian peserta didik untuk berpartisipasi aktif dalam proses pembelajaran. Penutup merupakan kegiatan yang dilakukan un­tuk mengakhiri aktivitas pembelajaran yang dapat dilakukan dalam bentuk rangkuman atau kesimpul­an, penilaian dan refleksi, umpan balik, dan tindak lanjut.

Yang membedakan antara jenjang pendidikan satu dengan yang lain dan mata pelajaran satu dengan yang lain adalah pada kegiatan inti. Di dalam Permendiknas Nomor 41 Tahun 2007 tentang Standar Proses dinyatakan bahwa “Kegiatan inti menggunakan metode yang disesuai­kan dengan karakteristik peserta didik dan mata pela­jaran, yang dapat meliputi proses eksplorasi, elaborasi, dan konfirmasi”. Namun demikian, kegiatan inti harus mengakomodasi prinsip pembelajaran yang memberdayakan peserta didik. Dikatakan bahwa “Pelaksanaan kegiatan inti merupakan proses pem­belajaran untuk mencapai KD yang dilakukan secara interaktif, inspiratif, menyenangkan, menantang, me­motivasi peserta didik untuk berpartisipasi aktif, serta memberikan ruang yang cukup bagi prakarsa, kreativi­tas, dan kemandirian sesuai dengan bakat, minat dan perkembangan fisik serta psikologis peserta didik”.

Langkah-langkah dalam kegiatan inti hendaknya mencerminkan metode pembelajaran yang telah ditulis pada bagian “metode pembelajaran”. Sebagai ilustrasi, apabila metode yang dipilih adalah role play, langkah-langkah dalam kegiatan inti harus merupakan langkah-langkah dalam role play. Yang diperlukan oleh guru (juga oleh kita sebagai fasilitator) adalah memperkaya diri dengan pengetahuan tentang “metode-metode” pembelajaran tersebut.

Kesalahan umum yang terjadi saat ini adalah bahwa kegiatan inti terdiri atas tiga tahap pembelajaran yang disebut eksplorasi, elaborasi, dan konfirmasi tanpa memandang keterampilan berbahasa dan kompetensi yang hendak dikembangkan. Konon sumber kesalahan tersebut adalah “instruksi” para pengawas yang didasarkan pada Permendiknas No 41 Tahun 2007, yang sebenarnya tidak mewajibkan hal itu.

Dalam kaitannya dengan tahap-tahap pembelajaran dalam kegiatan inti (seperti eksplorasi, elaborasi, dan konfirmasi), kita memiliki pengalaman, seperti “pre-reading, while-reading, dan post-reading”, “pattern, practice, production”, “exposure, generalization, reinforcement, application”. Bahkan saat ini kita juga memiliki “genre-based approach” yang terdiri atas tahapan “building knowledge of the field, modelling of the text, joint construction of the text, independent construction of the text”.


I. Media Pembelajaran

Media pembelajaran dipilih dan digunakan untuk memperlancar jalannya pembelajaran. Contoh media pembelajaran adalah LCD projector, layar, netbook, gambar, foto, dan lain sebagainya. Pemilihan media pembelajaran disesuaikan dengan kebutuhan.


J. Sumber Belajar

Sumber belajar berupa referensi atau sumber lain yang menjadi rujukan pengembangan RPP. Disarankan bahwa sumber belajar bersifat variatif dalam jenis (materi cetak, materi rekaman, materi audio-visual, realia, dll.) dan up to date. Pemilihan sumber belajar disesuaiakan dengan kebutuhan.


K. Penilaian

Dalam konteks ini, ada dua macam penilaian, yaitu penilaian formatif (assessment for learning) dan penilaian sumatif (assessment of learning). Penilaian formatif adalah penilaian yang dilaksanakan pada saat proses belajar mengajar berlangsung. Fungsinya adalah untuk (1) memonitor kemajuan belajar siswa, (2) memberikan feedback berdasarkan hasil monitoring tersebut, dan (3) mengoreksi kesalahan siswa, bila ada. Kegiatan-kegiatan pada butir (1) – (3) tersebut dipandu oleh “indikator” kompetensi pembelajaran. Teknik yang digunakan dapat berupa pengamatan, wawancara, unjuk kerja, portofolio, dan lain sebagainya. Penilaian formatif TIDAK HARUS menghasilkan angka/nilai. Bila guru menghendaki adanya angka/nilai, guru dapat melakukannya dengan menggunakan format anecdotal records. Pada pertemuan-pertemuan awal pembelajaran, sebaiknya guru menggunakan jenis penilaian formatif ini.

Penilaian sumatif adalah jenis penilaian yang dilaksanakan untuk mengukur ketercapaian kompetensi pembelajaran oleh peserta didik, sebagaimana ditunjukkan dalam bagiaan “indikator”; dan oleh karena itu, target penilaian ini adalah diperolehnya indeks prestasi siswa yang berupa nilai. Teknik penilaian yang lazim digunakan adalah tes, yang diberikan paling tidak pada setiap akhir pembelajaran suatu KD.

Di dalam bagian “Penilaian”, guru hendaknya menuliskan butir-butir yang terkait dengan pelaksanaan penilaian, yang mencakupi minimal (1) jenis penilaian, (2) teknik penilaian, (3) alat penilaian – bila sumatif, (4) kunci jawaban – bila sumatif, dan (5) rubrik penilaian – bila sumatif.

6. Stating the objectives of the lesson

(In this lesson you are supposed to be able to …)

7. Explaining the benefits of the lesson

(The benefit we can get from this lesson is ...)


II. Main Activities

A. Exploration

Task 1 (about 5 minutes)

Look at the picture, then answer the questions about it.



1. What picture is it?

2. What do you see in the picture?

3. What is in your mind when you see the picture?

4. Have you had any experience being in the situation shown in the picture?



Task 2 (about 5 minutes)

You are going to read a text about “Traffic Jam in big cities”. What information do you expect from the text?

  1. ____________________________________________________________________
  2. ___________________________________________________________________
  3. ___________________________________________________________________
  4. ___________________________________________________________________
  5. ____________________________________________________________________


Task 3 (about 5 minutes)

Read the text, then check whether you can find the information you expected (in task 2).


(1) In most big cities in the world, traffic has become a serious problem. (2) Traffic jam takes place, especially in rush hours. (3) There are simply too many cars. (4) This brings about some unexpected effects.

(5) Traffic in Hongkong can be so bad that a vehicle moves along at only 10 KPH, slower than bicycle speed. (6) In Manila, traffic often stops completely. (7) This generates so much exhaust that Manila is now one of the world’s most polluted cities. (8) In Bangkok, children get up at 4 or 5 AM to make it to school by 9:00. (9) They have breakfast in the car or bus.

(10) The number of cars in the world doubled between 1970 and 1990. (11) Currently, there are around 600 million vehicles on roads designed for half that many. (12) The number of cars is expected to double again over the next 20 – 40 years. (13) More roads are being built, but there is no way there can ever be enough roads to handle all these cars.

(14) The wasted fuel from the vehicles causes pollution. (15) The pollution destroys the environment in a number of ways. (16) It also affects personal health. (17) More and more people in large cities suffer from asthma and other breathing disorders than ever before. (18) It is not only humans who suffer. (19) A recent study in Britain repots that birds are losing their hearing because of the traffic noise; as a result, they are unable to sing properly.

(20) No one argues that traffic has become a big problem. (21) We need to find a solution to the world’s traffic jams; otherwise, we will still suffer from diseases.



B. Elaboration

C. Confirmation (about 15 menit)

(Pada fase ini guru memberi tanggapan atas apa yang telah dikerjakan dan dipresentasikan oleh siswa, baik melalui kelompok mereka maupun secara perorangan. Hal penting yang perlu dilakukan oleh guru pada tahap konfirmsi ini adalah (1) menyatakan bahwa jawaban siswa BENAR atau SALAH, (2) memberi penguatan terhadap alasan (reasoning) yang telah dikemukakan oleh siswa, dan (3) memberi penjelasan tambahan yang dapat memberikan pemahaman siswa lebih lanjut, seperti bagaimana cara menemukan main idea dalam suatu teks atau paragraf, menunjukkan reference dalam suatu teks, dan menjelaskan makna ungkapan dalam teks. Fase ini dapat dilakukan bersamaan dengan Task 2 Fase Elaboration. Setiap suatu exercise atau butir soal dalam suatu exercise selesai dipresentasikan dan dibahas, guru dapat memberi konfirmasi.
