The purpose of the study is to develop a prototype of WebQuest, an

thoring software for teaching writing recount text to the Tenth Graders. The

stages of the Research and Development (R&D) study was adapted from Hyland

(2003), which include: 1) a need analysis, 2) product development, 3) expert

validation, 4) first revision, 5) product try-out, 6) second revision, and 7) final

product. The prototype of the WebQuest project was validated by two experts, a

lecture of English Department in Universitas Negeri Malang and an English

teacher of SMAN 1 Singosari. Afterward, the product was revised based on the

experts’ comments, and suggestions. Then, it was tried-out to 33 tenth grade

students in SMAN 1 Singosari.

The WebQuest product was created by using two applications: 1) Autoplay



ion 7 and 2) Adobe Flash Professional CS 5. At the end, it was packed in the

form of a Compact Disc (CD). The prototype is divided into seven sections: 1)

introduction, 2) task, 3) process, 4) evaluation, 5) conclusion, 6) resources, and 7)

teacher page. The prototype itself entitles “Who is Your Idol?”

The method applied in data collection was through an interview and

questionnaire. The instruments to collect the data were questionnaire sheets,

interview guides, and validation sheets. The data from the instruments were

analyzed throughout a qualitative descriptive analysis technique.

According to the two expert validators, the product is classified as a good

product for teaching writing recount text to tenth graders. Furthermore, the

students also showed positive responses and attitudes toward the product. The

average scores from the try-out show that the prototype is considered as a good

project. Therefore, it can be concluded that the prototype of WebQuest is suitable

to be used with the target language and for the teaching and learning purposes,

particularly for teaching writing biographical recount text.

It is suggested for future researchers that the prototype of WebQuest can

be more developed by using other methods and skills. It is also possible to add

various text types, topics, and tasks.
