"Report", the Concise Oxford Dictionary 10th Edition, is defined as : 1) An account is given of a matter after investigation or consideration. 2) A piece of information about an event or situation. So we can conclude, in a language view, a report text is used to serves to provide information about an event or situation, after the investigation and through the multi consideration. Definition of text report is also fairly similar to what is often mentioned in various books in English at the intermediate level, "Report is a text roomates present information about something, as it is. It is as a result of systematic observation and analyzes." GENERIC STRUCTURE As same as descriptive text, A report text also has two common structures [generic structure], there are : 1) General Clasification » statements that describe the common subject of the report, common description, and classification. 2) Description » Tells what the phenomenon under discussion; in terms of parts, qualities, habits or behaviors; This section gives us an overview of commonly occurring phenomenon, either of its parts, its properties, habit, or behavior. The point is, presenting elaboration of scientific classification.

Just compare beetwen "Hunting dogs" and "My dog". Hunting dogs are common, while my dog is more spesific. 2) Use of Relating verbs to describe features, the grammar is also called linking verbs. As to be [is, am, are: present], seem, look, taste, etc. 3) Some use of action verbs when describing behavior, eg Emus can not fly; 4) Use of timeless present tense to indicate usualness, is one time in the simple present markers such as "often, Usually, always" and others. eg Tropical cyclonesalways begin over the sea; 5) Use of technical terms, eg "Isobars" are lines drawn on a weather map; For example, on "music" then, the terms of the music should be there. 10
  11. 11. 6) Use of paragraphs with topic sentences to organize bundles of information; repeated naming of the topic as the beginning focus of the clause. EXAMPLE OF REPORT TEXT KOMODO DRAGON Do you know what is the largest lizard? This lizard is called komodo. It lives in the scrub and woodland of a few Indonesian islands.

They use their keen sense of smell to locate decaying animal remains from several miles away. They also hunt other lizards as well as large mammals and are sometimes cannibalistic. The Komodo dragon’s teeth are almost completely covered by its gums. When it feeds, the gums bleed, creating an ideal culture for virulent bacteria. The bacteria that live in the Komodo dragon’s saliva causes septicemia, or blood poisoning, in its victims. A dragon will bite its prey, then follow it until the animal is too weak to carry on.

Argument 2 Those who want to penalize older, leaded petrol vehicles and their owners don't seem to appreciate that, in the country, there is no public transport to fall back upon and one's own vehicle is the only way to get about. Recommendation I feel that country people, who often have to travel huge distances to the nearest town and who already spend get deal of money on petrol, should be treated differently to the people who lives in the city. 31
  32. 32. EXAMPLE OF QUESTION The following passage is for questions 1 to 3. Keeping Dogs There are many reasons for keeping dogs as pets in the city area, but many people feel that keeping pet dogs should not be allowed in the city. Dogs are often not taken care properly. They are kept in small backyards and rarely taken for walks. They are left in the yard all day by themselves while the family is at work. Very little attention is given to the dog and it is not a very good life for it. It is no wonder why these dogs bark and disturb the neighbours and become a nuisance to the community. On the other hand, not all people treat their dogs this way and why should the people receive a lot of pleasure and enjoyment from dog's suffer? Dogs can make a lonely person's life happy or make wonderful playmate. It can also teach a child responsibility as they not only get to lay with the dog, but also need to exercise, feed, and care for the dog. I feel that we should be allowed to keep dogs in the city, because if it is taken care of properly, dogs can be a great source of pleasure. As a child I used to enjoy playing and taking care of my pet. There is not greater loyalty a person can get than from a well-cared dog. 1. Some people do not like the presence of pet dogs in their surroundings because .... A. the dogs are left in the yards B. the dogs are often neglected C. the dogs often bark and disturb the neighbours D. the dogs play with the owner's child E. the dogs guard the security of the environment 2. The main idea of the last paragraph is .... A. pet dogs are loyal animals B. pet dogs are more loyal than humans C. dogs can be a great source of pleasure D. the writer has no objection to keeping dogs in the city E. the writer used to play and took care of his pet when he was a child 3. We can infer from the text that keeping pet dogs in the city will not cause any problem as long as .... A. the dogs are amusing B. the neighbours like having pet dogs C. the dogs do not bark at the neighbours D. the writer has succeeded in persuading the neighbours E. its presence does not disturb the neighbourhood 32
  33. 33. The following passage is for questions 4 to 5. Faster Planes and Cheaper Flights Faster planes and cheaper flights are making it easier than ever before for people to travel. In the most 'developed' societies, visiting exotic places is a sought-after status symbol. The tourism industries of both developed and developing countries have recognised this fact and are learning to take advantage of it. There are, however, some problems associated with this new industry.Firstly, there is the increasing crime rate. Some local's tourists as an easy prey because, not only are they in unfamiliar territory and therefore less able to take care of themselves, but also they carry visible items of wealth, such as cameras and jewelery which can be disposed of quickly for profit. Another major problem is health. With greater mobility comes greater danger of spreading contagious diseases around the world. One carrier returning home could easily start an epidemic before their illness was diagnosed. Moreover, the emergence of many diseases which resist antibiotics is causing scientists to be increasingly concerned about this issue. Also to be considered is the natural environment, which can be seriously threatened by too many visitors. Australia's Great Barrier Reef, for example, is in danger of being destroyed by tourists and there are plans to restrict visitors to some of the more delicate coral cays. These are just three of the reasons why any country should be wary of committing itself to an extensive tourism development program. 4. Why does the natural environment become one of the serious problem associated with the faster planes ail cheaper flight? Because .... A. it easily started an epidemic before their illness was diagnosed B. it can be destroyed by too many visitors C. the health problem will increase D. they carry visible items of wealth E. it can increase crime rate 5. Why is the crime rate increasing due to the new industry? A. Some tourists carry visible items of wealth. B. The tourists are spreading contagious diseases. C. The government is planning to restrict visitors to some coral cays. D. The new industry makes the number of unemployment increase. E. The tourists come by plane. 33
  34. 34. PROCEDURAL TEXT DEFINITION Procedural text is a text which is written to show how to do something, such as recipe. It designed to describe how something is achieved through a sequence of actions or steps. It explains how people perform different processes in a sequence of steps.

  40. 40. My Horrible Experience Let me remind you my experience during an earthquake last week. When the earthquake happened, I was on my car. I was driving home from my vocation to Bali. Suddenly my car lunched to one side, to the left. I thought I got flat tire. I did not know that it was an earthquake. I knew it was an earthquake when I saw some telephone and electricity poles falling down to the ground, like matchsticks. Then I saw a lot of rocks tumbling across the road. I was trapped by the rock. Even I could not move my car at all. There were rocks everywhere. There was nothing I could do but left the car and walked along way to my house, in the town. When I reached my town, I was so surprised that there was almost nothing left. The earthquake made a lot of damage to my town. Although nothing was left, I thanked God that nobody was seriously injured. Generic Structure Analysis • Orientation; introducing the participant, using first person point of view, I was on the car las week. • Events; describing a series of event which happened. The car lunched to one side. Telephone and electricity poles was falling down, etc. • Re-orientation; stating the writer’s personal note. Thanking God because nobody was seriously injured. Language Feature Analysis • Using personal participant; I • Using chronological connectives; then, and, suddenly • Using linking verb; was, were • Using action verb; moved, left, walked, made, etc • Using simple past tense pattern; earthquake happened, I was on the car, my car lunched on one side, etc Notes: A recount text is a text that tells you a part of experience. A recount text has an orientation, a series of events in chronological order, personal remarks on the events and a reorientation that “rounds off” the sequence of events. In the text, you find words and phrases used to start, connect a sentence with the next one, and end your composition. Those words and phrases are: First, Then, After that, Finally, 40
  41. 41. Between Recount and Narrative Something which happened in the past is the main resource to compose both recount and narrative text. In writer’s point of view, the thing is an experience. It can be what the writer has done, hear, read, and felt. Composing recount and narrative is retelling the experiences of the past event to be a present event. What does recount differ from narrative? The easiest way to catch the difference is analyzing the generic structure. Recount text presents the past experiences in order of time or place; what happened on Sunday, then on Monday, the on Tuesday. In simple way, recount describes series of events in detail. It does not expose the struggle on how to make them happen. The event happened smoothly. On the other hand, narrative introduces crises and how to solve them. Narrative text always appear as a hard potrait of participant’s past experience. It reveals the conflict among the participants. Cinderella’s conflicts with her step mother and sister are the example. The conflict is the most important element in a narrative text. Narrative without comflicts is not narrative any more. 41

  45. 45. EXAMPLE OF QUESTION Answer the question based on the following text. Illegal Mining The activities of illegal mining must become our concern. It is undeniable that illegal mining activities can be a livelihood for the people near the site. However, these activities bring harmful effects to our environment, especially the impact on the quality of human life. Therefore, illegal mining activities must be banned and stopped. If we take a deeper look, illegal mining activities bring negative impacts to the environment (i.e. soil and water), ecology (i.e. plants and animals), and the miners. Firstly, Illegal mining activities produce toxic waste and harmful chemicals. These toxic and chemicals are dumped into the river and the land. When the river gets polluted, the ecosystem in the river gets disturbed. The fish will be poisoned yet the water quality is no longer safe to be consumed. Secondly, if the toxic waste and harmful chemicals are released into the land, it will also get spoiled. The plants cannot grow because the soil water get intoxicated. The area of the illegal mining activities will also be in great damage. Without recovery, these areas will turn into useless wastelands. Moreover, an illegal mining activity is harmful for the miners. Those illegal miners are mostly not a skillful labor. Yet, they are not equipped with proper safety tools. Their safety during mining activities is in a great risk. It surely endangers their health in the future. The fact that illegal mining activities bring harmful impact to the environment must be our consideration to ban and to stop it as soon as possible. 1.

Example of Discussion Text on Nuclear Power The Advantage and Disadvantage of Nuclear Power 48
  49. 49. Nuclear power is generated by using uranium which is a metal mined in various part of the world. The first large scale of nuclear power station was opened at Calder Hall in Cumbria, England in 1956. Some military ships and submarines have nuclear power plant for engine. Nuclear power produces around 11% of the world’s energy needed, and produces huge amounts of energy. It cause no pollution as we would get when burning fossil fuels. The advantages of nuclear plant are as follow: • It costs about the same coal, so it is not expansive to make. • It does not produce smoke or carbon dioxide, so it does not contribute to the greenhouse effect. • It produces huge amounts of energy from small amount of uranium. • It produces small amount of waste. • It is reliable. On the other hand, nuclear power is very, very dangerous. It must be sealed up and buried for many years to allow the radioactivity to die away. Furthermore, although it is reliable, a lot of money has to be spent on safety because if it does go wrong, a nuclear accident ca be a major accident. People are increasingly concerned about this matter. In the 1990’s nuclear power was the fastest growing source of power in many parts of the world. Note on the Generic Structure of Discussion Text Discussion is a process to find the meet point between two different ideas. It is important to to get the understanding between the two differences. In many social activities, discussion is the effective way to calm down any friction and difference in thought, perception and recommendation. This example of discussion text present the two poles, between the advantage and disadvantage of using nuclear plant to fulfill the energy needed. It is a case which need to be talked and discussed from two points. They are represented in the generic structure which is used: • Stating the Issue: In the first paragraph, it is stated that using nuclear power can be the choice in fulfilling the needed energy. • Supporting Point: In the second paragraph, it is presented the advantages of nuclear power plant to be used as the source of the world’s energy needed • Contrastive Point: The third paragraph shows the balance. It gives the contradictory idea in using nuclear power plant as the resource of energy. • Recommendation: This text is ended with a similar recommendation on how people should concern in the matter of nuclear energy. B. Hunting Fox 49
  50. 50. Foxhunting is a subject that provokes very strong feelings. Many people believe that it is cruel to hunt a fox with dogs and totally agree with its ban. Many farmer and even conservationists, however, have always argue that the fox is a pest which attacks livestock and must be controlled.

  51. 51. EXAMPLE OF QUESTION The government has just published a report which suggest that television is partly responsible for the serious increase in crime over the last ten years. The exposure of violence or pornography harmfully effects on children. Many people who are alive today know what it is like to live in a world without television. Television as we know is only about forty years old. Yet it is so much a part of our lives that it seems as if it had always existed. Some people think that the years before the invention of television were a better time. They claim that families talked more and did more things together. More books were read. People used their imaginations more fully. People got more outdoor exercises. But others disagree. They claim that television is a powerful educational tool. It informs us of what is going on in the world, from a famine in Africa to a local politics and fashion. It helps us understand how people live, work, and struggle. In 1961, Newton Minow, a government official, called prime-time schedules “ a vast wasteland.” Television is credited with being a great teacher, but it is also blamed for the poor reading and writing skills of our population. Television gets praised for helping us understand the people of the world. But it has been accused of helping to destroy family life. Television keeps us informed about the political issues of the day. Experts will probably continue to argue about television’s value. But everyone agrees that it is one of the most significant inventions of the twentieth century. 1. The writer wants to tell ….. a. the development of television b. the advantages of television program c. how television destroys people’s life d. how television improves people’s knowledge e. the influence of television on people’s daily life 2. Which of the following is good for children in watching TV? a. The children should watch the violence on TV b. Children may watch TV whenever they like c. There shouldn’t be government censorship of TV program d. Children should spend all their time to watch TV program e. Children should be accompanied by their parents in watching TV 3. “ ….. what is going on in the world, from famine Africa …” (Paragraph 4) The underlined word means lack of …. a. food b. water c. nutrient d. education e. entertainment 51
  52. 52. The following text is for questions 4 to 5. Vegetarians, about 3.2% of the US population, do not eat meat. The US Department of Agriculture does not only include meat as part of a balanced diet, but it also states that a vegetarian diet can meet “the recommended dietary allowances for nutrients” Many proponents of vegetarianism say that eating meat harms health, wastes resources, causes deforestation and creates pollution. They often argue that killing animals for food is cruel and unethical since non-animal food sources are plentiful. Humans evolved to be primarily vegetarians. Humans do not have the large mouth or long, pointed teeth of carnivores. Human teeth are short and flat for chewing fibrous food. The liver of a carnivore can detoxify the excess vitamin A absorbed from a meat-based diet. The human liver cannot exceed vitamin A. It is unnecessary to take an animal’s life when vegetarian options are available. In the US about 35 million cows, 115 million pigs and 9 billion birds are killed for food each year. These animals should not have to die to satisfy an unnecessary dietary preference. On the other hand, many opponents of a vegetarian diet say that moderate meat consumption is healthy, humane and that producing vegetables causes many of the same environmental problems as producing meat. Eating meat is not cruel or unethical. Every organism on earth dies, at some point, so others can live. There is nothing wrong with this cycle; it is how nature works. Humans have been eating meat in their ancestral diet provided a dense form of nutrients and protein that, when combined with high-calorie low nutrient carbohydrates such as roots, allowed us to develop our large brains and intelligence. Meat is the most convenient protein sources since it provides all 10 essential proteins (amino acids), as well as essential nutrients such as iron, zinc and the B vitamins, in one serving. Most individual plant foods do not provide adequate levels of all 100 essential proteins in a single serving. In my opinion, meat eaters don’t need to feel guilty. Everything we consume, including vegetables or meat has environmental, ethical and health consequences. 3. The proponents of vegetarianism believe that... a. Moderate meat consumption is healthful b. Killing animals for food is cruel ad unethical c. Animals can only be killed in an appropriate way d. The liver of a carnivore cannot exceed vitamin A e. Humans do not need met to develop their brain 5. All in all, the writer seems to disagree with the arguments stated by... a. The US Department of Agriculture b. Proponents of vegetarianism c. Opponents of vegetarianism 52
  53. 53. d. Animal lovers e. Meat eaters 53
