Abstract

The purposes of this research were to develop English learning activities for
Prathomsuksa II students using storytelling activities “Story Role Play” and “Acting out
Stories with Puppets” with the required efficiency of 70/70; to determine the effectiveness
of these English learning activities; to compare the English listening & speaking skills and to
study self-confidence of the students who learned through “Story Role Play” and those
learning through “Acting out Stories with Puppets. The samples for this research were 64
Prathomsuksa II students from 2 classes of Nampong School, obtained by using cluster
random sampling. The instruments used in this study were: 1) 8 instructional plans for Story

listening skill test, having the average quality of 0.80 to 1.00, the discrimination power of
0.40 to 0.76, and the reliability of 0.92; 3) an 8-item oral test of English speaking skills, having
the average quality of 0.80 to 1.00, the discrimination power of 0.50 to 0.75, and the
reliability of 0.94; and 4) a self-confidence evaluation form. The statistics used for data
analyses were means, standard deviation, percentage, and t-test (Independent Samples).
The results of this research are as follows: 1) The efficiency of the instructional
plans using story role play is 73.85/75.94, and the efficiency of the instructional plans using

who learned through Acting out Stories with Puppets ( Χ =37.75) is higher than that of the
students who learned through Story Role Play ( Χ = 36.75) at the .05 level of statistical
significance. 4) The average speaking score of the students who learned through Acting out
Stories with Puppets ( Χ = 26.93) is higher than that of the students who learned through
Story Role Play ( Χ = 23.81) at the .01 level of statistical significance. 5) The self-confidence
