Abstract

MUKHLIS ABDUL SALAM: Writing is an important students’ activity that has close relation with reading activity and critical thinking. One aspect that plays an important role in writing is the coherence. In Indonesian education, both teachers and students in the teaching and learning activity, especially in writing skill, just paid attention in grammatical and context, and rarely in coherence. So that, this study aims to reveal how the students organize their ideas in their critical reviews seen from Thematic Progression, and to investigate the implication of thematic progression pattern with gender in writing because both male and female have their own characteristic in writing formal text. The methodology that used in this study is qualitative approach. This work also shall be exclusively descriptive qualitative analysis, and analysis will be conducted using the following levels of analysis. The technique of qualitative method is used to collect and identify the data or text. In conducting this research, researcher will identify the selected text through content analysis design. Content analysis is chosen because it is about research method to identify texts addresses the transcript of interview and text. The result of study reveals female writer is highly prominent used topical theme to express ideational meaning which the content is densely in nominal construction. It is difference if we look at the critical review that created by male college student. He use more textual theme which is located in the first position than the others theme types. In addition, the researcher also captured from research findings about information flow of discourse and it showed that the constant themes was prevalently dominant in the texts. In conclusion, female writers use more topical theme or pronouns that encode the relationship between the writer and the reader, while males have a tendency to prefer more specifiers pronouns or textual theme. Both of these aspects might be seen as pointing to a greater “personalization” of the text by female and male authors. In addition, according to Biber’s dimension the characteristic of male is as informant which is used more specifiers pronoun for operating sentence or clause in complex level. In contrast, female writers as involver produce less constant theme pattern. Key words: Thematic Progression, Critical Review, Field of discourse, Gende
