SUMMARY The Effect of Using Numbered Heads Together Technique on the Seventh Grade Students’ Vocabulary Achievement at SMPN 6 Jember; Eka Kusumasari, 080210401001; 2013: 44; English Language Education Study Program, Language and Arts Department, Faculty of Teacher Training and Education, Jember University Vocabulary is the basic thing in language learning. Many people who learn language cannot understand the words or sentences if they do not know the meaning of the words. Vocabulary plays an important role in developing the students’ skills of English speaking, reading, listening and writing. When the students want to express their ideas or feeling they need more vocabularies to speak and write. By having a lot of words the students can communicate easily and more effectively. Numbered Heads Together technique can be an alternative in teaching vocabulary. Numbered Heads Together technique gives positive effects to the students; such as they learn how to cooperate with each other, every student will study harder because they do not want to become a loser, learn how to lose but still have a big motivation to get a maximum score and to be the winner, and how to give appreciation to each other. This research was an experimental research.
