ABSTRACT

Writing skills are quite complex problems in Indonesia and even the world. Writing is closely related to reading, because to be a good writer, they should have a good capability in reading. Meanwhile, the problems faced by Indonesian people at this time are low in reading interest and motivation also the availability of adequate textbooks. The instruction of writing practice is delivered orally by teachers and certainly the result is not optimum. The purpose of this study is to describe the effectiveness of literacy textbooks. The effectiveness of literacy text books is seen from two aspects, namely students' learning outcomes in the form of product (textbook) of children stories are based on the "local wisdom" and students' responses to the application of textbooks in the learning process. From the results of data analysis, it can be concluded that the ability of students in understanding the literacy textbooks is quite good. These results are obtained from the products produced by the students in the form of short story scripts. The findings of this study showed that the ability to use the Indonesian spelling was still low and need to be improved, because the fact that reported speech produced by students are not in line with the rules. In addition, the story line in the children texts is still flat. Whereas, the students' responses on the effectiveness of text books are in the "good" category. The students are very interested in using of 'literacy' textbooks to write children's story scripts based on the "local wisdom and cultivation of character" because they have the opportunity to produce a children's story script. They even asked for the additional time and suggested that the teaching of Indonesian spelling material to be inserted in the chapter of the 'literacy' textbooks.
