Abstract

The cooperative counseling model with the jigsaw technique for government staffs in Mandai Subdistrict, Maros Regency aims to improve the ability and skills to apply the standard language rules in writing official letters to the fullest. The method used is a jigsaw technique in the form of simulations, lecture demonstrations, and performances. The results of this counseling are expected to be the basis of planning in the form of constructive thoughts as an alternative solution for solving problems experienced by government staffs in Mandai District, Maros Regency, especially in official letter writing. The result of this research that the achievement of the success of writing the control group is twice that of the control group. The success of the jigsaw technique achievement is implemented in the experimental group that composes the letter based on the results of group discussions without being guided by the instructor/lecturer. Thus, counseling on cooperative models through jigsaw techniques in improving the quality of official letter writing is more successful than other techniques.
