First of all we wished to preface that in this part of Learning English Material Based
ICT, SMAN 2 Mataram designed firstly English Learning Material for Senior High School
grade X, XI, & XII Academic Year 2009 / 2010. They are written and designed by H.M.
Nowadays, Mastering English is a challenge for some people, this is because of the
Modern Technology which accelerates the development of any field including Education.
To fulfill the Standard of Competence these English Learning Materials, we have to concern
with Badan Standar Nasional Pendidikan as it is legitimated by Peraturan Menteri No 22
Tahun 2006 and it is applied in KTSP SMA which is elaborated completely in Syllabus
The main teacher's roles are as mediator and facilitator. The students and the
teachers are to be active and creative . The students' activity is focused on four skills such
as Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing Skills. All skills enable the students to work
actively, while vocabulary Mastery is given indirectly in every task and also functional skills
which is available in orally that is intended to make students to be able to communicate in
English orally. Then the acceleration task are implemented in every topic and section.
Furthermore, in these part of design English Learning Materials in order to meet the
students' needs, to offer a wide knowledge which are useful to their daily life or activity. So
we can say that the students from SMAN 2 Mataram joining these materials are aware of
English. And during the process of study, the students will discover something new, also
encourage them to communicate in English.
Finally, we would like to express our appreciation to those who have taken apart,
helped and given the motivation, or supported to these designs.
Hopefully, if there were some suggestions, criticisms for the improvement of these
designs will be warmly appreciated.

What is Analytical Exposition?
Analytical Exposition Text
Definition of Analytical Exposition
Exposition is a text that elaborates the writer‘s idea about the phenomenon surrounding. Its
social function is to persuade the reader that the idea is important matter.
Analytical Exposition text overview
Analytical Exposition Analysis on the Generic Structure
Analytical exposition is one of argumentative texts which present some supporting idea
on why certain writer’s opinion is important. The opinion is formulated in a thesis
which needs to prove by selecting arguments. The above example of analytical
exposition about accredited school has the following generic structure:
1.Thesis: Introducing the topic and indicating the writer’s position or it is the main topic of
discourse in analytical exposition essay. Commonly the thesis will be placed in
the first paragraphs. It also functionalize of introduction of the text. From the text
above we see that choosing school will be wiser and safer if it is based on the
status of the school; accredited or not.
2. Arguments: Explaining the argument to support the writer’s position, the arguments are
the heart of an analytical exposition. And t explaining he other arguments support
the writer’s position more
The absence of argument, analytical will just talk nothing since a thesis
must be evaluated, whether it is true or false later, it does not matter. From the
analytical exposition sample above, we see an accredited school graduate will
hold better opportunity. Additionally choosing school based on short term
interests seem to be less benefit in the end.
3. Reiteration: Restating the writer’s position or it is the writer’s thesis which is re-stated in
another word. The purpose is to strengthen the thesis. we realize that choosing
an accredited school is really important
Language Features of Analytical Exposition those are :
1. Using relational process
2. Using internal conjunction
3. Using causal conjunction
4. Using Simple Present Tense
Modul Bahsa Inggris XI SMAN2 Mataram UNIT 3 ANALYTICAL EXPOSITION 4
Analytical exposition is one classified type as hortatory exposition in
text genre. Both analytical exposition and hortatory exposition present arguments
for supporting the issued thesis. What makes them different from one to each other
is the last stage of the text, which the analytical exposition will end with a re-
iteration. In the other hand, hortatory will close the essay with a recommendation.
Analytical exposition will try to influence the reader by presenting some arguments
to prove that the writer' idea is important. Furthermore, hortatory will try to persuade
the reader how should or not do concerning the writer's idea.

Is Smoking Good for Us?;
Example of Analytical Exposition
Before we are going to smoke, it is better to look at the fact. About 50
thousands people die every year in Britain as direct result of smoking. This is seven
times as many as die in road accidents. Nearly a quarter of smokers die because of
diseases caused by smoking.
Ninety percent of lung cancers are caused by smoking. If we smoke
five cigarettes a day, we are six times more likely to die of lung cancer than a non
smoker. If we smoke twenty cigarettes a day, the risk is nineteen greater. Ninety five
percent of people who suffer of bronchitis are people who are smoking. Smokers
are two and half times more likely to die of heart disease than non smokers.
Additionally, children of smoker are more likely to develop bronchitis
and pneumonia. In one hour in smoky room, non smoker breathes as much as
substance causing cancer as if he had smoked fifteen cigarettes. Smoking is really
good for tobacco companies because they do make much money from smoking
habit. Smoking however is not good for every body else.
Notes on the generic structure of this example of analytical exposition
As we know that both analytical exposition and hortatory exposition are
classified as argumentative essay. Both present argument to support the thesis
state in the orientation. This thesis places the writer’s position on the essay. From
the generic structure, what make big different is that analytical exposition ends with
paragraph to strengthen the thesis while hortatory makes a recommendation for
Generic Structure Analysis
Thesis: This pre-conclusive paragraph states the writer’s point of view about the
topic discussed. Writer has show himself in clear position of the
discussed topic. Paragraph 1 is the thesis of this analytical exposition
text. It states the fact of the very fatal impact of the smoking habit. Clearly
the writer wants to say that smoking is not a good habit.
Arguments: Presenting arguments in analytical exposition text is as important as
giving conflict plot in narrative text. The series of argument will
strengthen the thesis stated before. In this example of analytical
exposition text, paragraph 2 and 3 are the detail arguments presented in a
reporting fact to support that smoking is not good even for smokers
themselves. Furthermore, people who do not smoke but they are in
smoky area have the bad effect too from the smoking habit.
Reiteration: This end paragraph actually is restating the thesis. It is something like
conclusive paragraph from the previous arguments. The last paragraph of
this example of analytical exposition points again that smoking is not
good for smokers and people around smokers. However smoking is very
good for Cigarette Companies

Opportunity in the Global Financial Crisis;
example of analytical exposition
US. financial crisis and its contagion to Europe and the rest of the
world could also create new opportunity for Indonesia in term of foreign direct
investment and the development of basic infrastructure. As the US. financial crisis
has now spread to Europe, the oil-rich countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and
Arab Emirate which have accumulated hundreds of billion of Dollars in their foreign
reserve, are now reviewing their holding or investment vehicle. They are looking for
more diversified investment outside the US and Europe.
Because of unfavorable political developments in Thailand and
Malaysia over the past few months, Indonesia which has largely Muslim population
could become one of these oil-rich countries' favorite place for foreign direct
investment. That will be true if the conditions, legal and market infrastructure are
conducive for Islamic financial instruments.
The government had improved the legal framework with the recent
atmen of laws on sharia banking and bonds. The long term nature of Islamic bonds
could make them the most suitable investment instrument for Indonesia, as these
bonds grant an investor a share in an asset along with the cash flows and risks
commensurate with such ownership.
The financial crisis that has gripped the globe and weakening
economic growth in the rest of the world will serve to the government to accelerate
the investment reform measures in order to grab the hidden opportunity in the
global crisis. (simplified from the jakartapos.com on Oct 9)
NOTES ON Generic Structure of the above Analytical Exposition
Paragraph 1 is THESIS. It introduces the topic of the text which state the potential
opportunity behind the global financial crisis.
Paragraphs 2 and 3 are the ARGUMENTS which support to the opinions stated in the
Paragraph 4 is REITERATION which restates the thesis in another phrases to point

Why is Learning English Important?
Language is the mean of communication. Mostly groups of society have
their own languages Some of them appear the top global languages. Most people
in the world hear about English, Arabic, and Mandarin. However English is the
most global spoken language. Then if a man wants to catch a global goal, he has
to master English. Everyone recognize that English is an international language.
English is used in writing and speaking by many people all over the
world. It can be either as a first or second language. We even hear British,
American, Australian, and even Singaporean English. Those various names of
English are used as the first language in those countries. Furthermore, some
countries have their own languages as a mother language but also use English
mostly in daily communication.
Besides usage in daily interaction, English is also used as a key to open
doors leading to scientific and technical knowledge. No wonder we find manual
guides and instructions of many devices written in English. Even if we have a
pack of instant noodle, we will see the cooking instruction also written in English.
This transfer of science and technique will include many countries in economic,
social and politics development.
Finally, the most easily seen in the importance of learning English is that
most top requirement in filling job opportunities is the ability using English; active
or passive. Job applicants who master English are more favorable than ones who
do not. The above facts prove that everybody needs to learn English if he likes to
greet the global era.

Activity 3 From the analytical exposition monolog text below, analyze the generic
structure and language feature, work in pairs .
Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-
surface air and oceans in recent decades and its projected continuation. Increasing
global temperature will cause sea levels to rise, and is expected to increase the
intensity of extreme weather events and to change the amount and pattern of
precipitation. Other effects of global warming include changes in agricultural yields,
trade routes, glacier retreat, species extinction and increases in the ranges of disease
vectors. Remaining scientific uncertainties include the amount of warming expected
in the future, and how warming and related changes will vary from region to region
around the globe. Most national governments have signed and ratified the Kyoto
Protocol aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but there is ongoing political
and public debate worldwide regarding what, if any, action should be taken to reduce
or reverse future warming or to adapt to its expected consequences.
Climate model projections summarized by the IPCC indicate that average global
surface temperature will likely rise a further 1.1 to 6.4 °C (2.0 to 11.5 °F) during the
twenty-fi rst century. The range of values results from the use of differing scenarios of
future greenhouse gas emissions as well as models with differing climate sensitivity.
Although most studies focus on the period up to 2100, warming and sea level rise are
expected to continue for more than a thousand years even if greenhouse gas levels
are stabilized. The delay in reaching equilibrium is a result of the large heat capacity of
the oceans. Taken from en.wikipedia.org

Why is It Important to Choose the Accredited School?
Most of teenagers need to go to school and there are a lot of schools over
there. Nowadays, schools grow to offer plenty of choice; private and state ones.
However it is a hard choice since there are many factors which need to be considered
before making the selection. Some will be influenced by friends; because some friend
got to certain school than we go to there too. Some prefer to choose certain school
because of the closer distance. In fact, the primary decisive matter for selecting
school is whether the school has been accredited or not. Why is important to choose
an accredited school? Well, accredited schools have an edge over the unaccredited
schools. This label of Accredited School has an impact in employment opportunities.
As result, if there are two or more students with similar qualifications, the
student who comes from the accredited school will have an edge over the other
candidate. Student from an accredited school has more open door than student with
an accredited one. Many students select certain school depending more on short term
factors like friend influence and short distance from home. It is not bad since
commuting actually needs much cost. Choosing school which is closer to home will
save time, energy and money. However if that school is not accredited, the time and
money spent along studying seems to be waste in the long term because it could
become a limiting factor in gaining future opportunities.
Accredited school is not the only factor which will drive student’s
success. Personality and characterization are very important too. However a student
with good personality who comes from an accredited school is better than the others.

Activity 1 The following text consists of five paragraphs, but they are not in correct
order. Arrange them into a good text.
1. Many of the plants and trees that exist in this savannah occur nowhere else in the world. In
Europe, the continent least affected by climate change, survival rates were better. Studies
in Mexico's Chihuahua desert confirmed that on flatter land extinction was more likely
because a small change in climate would require migrations over vast distances for
survival. One third of 1,870 species examined would be in trouble. So many species are
already destined for extinction because it takes at least 25 years for the greenhouse effect -
or the trapping of the sun's rays by the carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide to have
its full effect on the planet. The continuous discharge of more greenhouse gases, particularly
by the United States and European nations, is making matters worse. The research says
that, if mankind continues to burn oil, coal and gas at the current rate, up to one third of all
life forms will be doomed by 2050.
2. The research in Europe, Australia, Central and South America, and South Africa, showed
that species living in mountainous areas had a greater chance of survival because they
could move uphill to get cooler. Professor Thomas said: "When scientists set about
research they hope to come up with definite results, but what we found we wish we had
not. It was far, far worse than we thought, and what we have discovered may even be an
underestimate." Among the more startling findings of the scientists was that of 24 species
of butterfly studied in Australia, all but three would disappear in much of their current range,
and half would become extinct.
3. In South Africa, major conservation areas such as Kruger National Park risked losing up to
60% of the species under their protection, while of 300 South African plant species studied,
more than one third were expected to die out, including the national flower, the King
Protean. In the Cerrito region of Brazil which covers one fifth of the country, a study of 163
tree species showed that up to 70 would become extinct.
4. The results are described as "terrifying" by Chris Thomas, professor of conservation biology
at Leeds University, who is lead author of the research from four continents published last
week in the magazine Nature. Much of that loss – more than one in 10 of all plants and
animals Œ is already irreversible because of the extra global warming gases already
discharged into the atmosphere. But the scientists say that action to curb greenhouse
gases now could save many more. It took two years for the largest global collaboration of
experts to make the first major assessment of the effect of climate change on six
biologically rich regions of the world taking in 20% of the land surface.
5. The changing climate over the next 50 years is expected to drive a quarter of land animals
and plants into extinction, according to the first comprehensive study into the effect of higher
temperatures on the natural world. The scale of the disaster facing the planet shocked
those involved in the research. They estimate that more than 1 million species will be lost

Demand for beef speeds destruction of Amazon forest
An international report says that last year was a very bad year for the Amazon
rainforest in Brazil. Satellite photographs show that almost 26,000 sq km of the world’s largest
forest was lost, 40% more than the year before. The Centre for International Forestry Research
(CIFOR) says that this year’s loss could be even greater. The main reason for the loss of
forest, or deforestation, is that farmers are cutting down trees so that they can produce
grasslands for their cows. Brazil exports a lot of beef to Europe and Brazilian beef is very
popular in Europe because there is no mad cow disease in Brazil.
The CIFOR report says that EU countries now buy almost 40% of Brazil's 578,000
tones of exported beef. Egypt, Russia and Saudi Arabia import 35%. The US takes only 8%.
"Beef exports are the main reason for the damage to the forest, as cattle ranchers are
destroying the rainforests, "said David Kaimowitz, the director general of CIFOR. He said that
logging is not a direct cause of deforestation. The number of cattle in the Amazon region
increased by more than 100% to 57 million between 1990 and 2002, the report says. "[In that
time] the percentage of Europe's meat imports coming from Brazil increased from 40% to
74%.la The Americans say that soya farming for the European market causes deforestation.
The CIFOR report does not agree with this "Soya bean farming in the Amazon region
is increasing but it only causes a small percentage of total deforestation," it says. The report
says that enormous ranching operations are now controlling the beef export market. "In the
1970s and 1980s small ranchers produced most of the beef in the Amazon region. They sold it
to local slaughterhouses. Now large commercial ranchers are producing the beef and selling it
to European supermarkets.ls Last month the Brazilian government said it was going to spend
$133 million to help to save the rainforest. This is a very positive step. Without urgent action to
save the rainforest, a huge area of forest will disappear during the next 18 months. CIFOR
says that the Brazilian government must stop ranchers using government land, stop building
roads in the forest, and give money to people to keep land as forest.

Global warming threatens to kill off a million species
Recently a group of scientists published the first comprehensive study into
the effect of higher temperatures on the natural world. The scientists involved in the
research were shocked by what they found. Over the next 50 years about 25% of land
animals and plants will become extinct.
More than 1 million species will be lost by 2050. The head of the research
team, Chris Thomas, who is professor of conservation biology at Leeds University,
described the results of the research as isterrifying. The loss represents more than
10% of all plants and animals and a large part of this is already irreversible because
of the extra global warming gases that are already in the atmosphere. But the
scientists say that immediate action to control greenhouse gases now could save
many more plants and animals from extinction.
The research took two years to complete and provides an assessment of the
effect of climate change on six biologically rich regions of the world taking in 20% of
the land surface. The research in Europe, Australia, Central and South America, and
South Africa, showed that species living in mountainous areas had a better chance of
survival because they could move uphill to get cooler Professor Thomas said: "When
scientists start a research project they hope to produce definite results, but we wish
we had not found what we found. It was much, much worse than we expected, and
what we have discovered may even be an underestimate." One of the more shocking
findings of the scientists was that half of the 24 species of butterfly they studied in
Australia would become extinct. In South Africa, major conservation areas such as the
Kruger National Park could lose up to 60% of the species under their protection, while
more than one third of 300 South African plant species studied were expected to die
out, including the national flower, the King Protean.
A study of 163 tree species in the Cerrito region of Brazil which covers one fifth of
the country, showed that up to 70 would become extinct. Many of the plants and trees
that exist in this savannah occur nowhere else in the world. In Europe, the continent
least affected by climate change, survival rates were better. Studies in Mexico's
Chihuahua desert confirmed that extinction was more probable on flatter land
because a small change in climate would mean that plants and animals would have to
migrate for huge distances in order to survive. One third of the 1,870 species that
were studied would be in trouble.
Many species are already certain to become extinct because it takes at least
25 years for the greenhouse effect - or the trapping of the sun's rays by the carbon
dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide - to have its full effect on the planet. The
continuing production of more greenhouse gases, particularly by the United States
and European nations, is making matters worse. The research says that, if mankind
continues to burn oil, coal and gas at the current rate, up to one third of all life forms
will be become extinct by 2050.

Text I : ‘Old’ Europe reuniting East with West’
The crisis in Iraq has created problems for many countries but now it could
also have a negative effect on the European Union and, in particular on the plans to
welcome the Eastern European countries into the EU in 2004. Jacques Chirac , the
French president , criticized the Eastern European countries last week for their
support for George Bush’s policy on Iraq. At the end of the EU summit on Iraq in
Brussels, Chirac said their behavior was "childish" and "dangerous". Poland,
Hungary, the Czech Republic and the other EU candidates should keep quiet, he
said. "When you are in the family, after all, you have more rights than when you are
asking to join the family, and you are knocking on the door. "Romania and Bulgaria
were particularly careless, he said, because they were still applying to join the EU.
This was a strong warning . France has never really liked the plans to
enlarge the EU because it sees the enlargement as a British plan to change the
character of the EU. It will be more difficult for French farmers when Polish farmers
are in the EU. French has been replaced by English as the main language of the
European Union. And , worst of all, the post-communist governments in War saw,
Prague, Budapest , the Baltic’s, Slovenia and Slovakia are mostly pro American .
Last month Chirac was very angry when Donald Rumsfeld, the US
defense secretary, criticized France and Germany as "old Europe" in contrast to the
friendly countries of "new Europe". The pro-American open letter of five current EU
members and three of the new candidates was another example of the division
between "old" and "new" Europe. France is not the only country that has criticized
the Eastern Europe countries. Germany says that it is wrong for these countries to
accept money from the EU and then support the Americans. Romano Prodi, the
president of the European Commission, said he was "very, very disappointed" by
the position of the future member states. Chirac even said there might be a
referendum in France on the question of the enlargement of the European Union .
The European Union summit in Copenhagen last December made the final decision
The treaty for the 10 new members, which include Po l a n d ,Slovakia ,
Malta and Estonia, will be signed in Athens in April . They should join the EU on
May 1st 2004. The Eastern European countries replied carefully to the criticism.
Bronislaw Geremek , the former Polish foreign minister, said that France and
Germany had not consulted the other current EU member states over the crisis in Ira
q .Some people recognized that this was s not really an attack on the Eastern
European countries. "Every time I have an argument with my wife I shout at my s o
n s," explained Romania's prime minister, Adrian Nastase. France has a problem
with the US and Britain but it is easier to criticise the Eastern European countries.

Global warming threatens to kill off a million species
The earth is getting warmer. People burn coal, oil and gas and this produces
carbon dioxide (CO2), methane and nitrous oxide. These gases, called ‚greenhouse
gases™, stop the heat of the sun from leaving the earth’s upper atmosphere and this
makes the earth warmer, a process called ‚global warming™. A few weeks ago a group of
scientists produced a report about global warming and the natural world. They wanted to find
out if global warming was dangerous for plants and animals. The scientists were shocked by
what they found.
They say that during the next 50 years about 25% of land animals and plants will become
extinct. More than 1 million plant and animal species will become extinct by 2050. The head
of the research team, Chris Thomas, who is professor of conservation biology at Leeds
University, said the results of their research were ieterrifyingly . More than 10% of all
plants and animals will become extinct. It is too late to save many plants and animals
because of the greenhouse gases that are already in the atmosphere. But the scientists say if
we control greenhouse gases now, we could save many more plants and animals from
The scientists studied some regions of the world with a very rich biology. These regions were
Europe, Australia, Central and South America, and South Africa. Their studies showed that species
living in mountainous areas had a better chance of survival because they could
move uphill to get cooler. In flat areas, such as deserts, plants and animals would have to
move very long distances to get cooler, so they are in greater danger of extinction.
The scientists found many shocking things. For example, they found that half of the 24
species of butterfly they studied in Australia would soon become extinct. 60% of the species in the
Kruger National Park in South Africa would also die out, and more than 100 of the 300 South African
plant species they studied would also become extinct. One of the plants in danger of extinction is the
national flower of South frica, the King Protea. They studied 163 tree species in the Cerrado region
of Brazil and found that 70 would become extinct. Many of the plants and trees that live in this region
live nowhere else in the world. In Mexico, they studied 1,870 species and found that more than 30%
of these were in danger of extinction. Global warming is getting worse. Many countries, particularly
the USA and the European countries, are continuing to produce greenhouse gases. We will not
know the true results of this for 25 years but if people continue to burn oil, coal and gas at the same
rate as today, about 30% of all life forms will become extinct by 2050.
