Abstract

The English Education Study Program, Ahmad Dahlan University Yogyakarta tries to produce qualified English writers by providing writing classes. One of the ways to know the quality of a writing class is by looking at the students’ constraints in participating writing classes. This study aims to know, describe, and classify the existing constraints in the Writing II B class. This research is descriptive and qualititative. The approach is naturalistic. The key instrument of the research is the researcher herself. The researcher collected the data by observing the Writing II B class, conducted in depth interviews and gave questionnaries. The subjects were the students who took the class and the lecturer who taught the subject. The data included field notes, interview transcripts, and completed questionnaries. The researcher used triangulation techniques for validity purposes. Based on the data analysis, it was found that there was two main causes of students’ constraints in participating in Writing II B. There were constraints based on intrinsic factors and extrinsic factors. The constraints based on intrinsic factors included students’ language mastery problems and personal problems. Language mastery problems were shown in the difficulty in choosing correct words, difficulty in spelling, confusion in punctuation, grammar and structure problem. Personal problems included the problem of willingness, self confidence problems, attendance problems, and psychological problems. The constraints based on extrinsic factors arose from the lecturer, the learning materials, other students, the invironment and time. The students’ constraints from the lecturer included monotonous teaching methods, lack of humor, too much English, and late arrival. Constraints from the learning material included too much English material, the difficulty of the material and homework problems. Students’ constraints in participating the Writing II B class who also due to other students in the class. They included the high number of students, noisy students and late students.
