A. The Background of the study
Nowadays, many people say that English is an important lesson to be learned because it is common used in every field such as economics, science, international relationship, and etc. Therefore, English is one of the subject that is taught and learned in every level of education.
In Indonesia, English has been used as a foreign language. English consists of four skills which have to be mastered by the students, they are listening, speaking, reading and writing. In this case, the learners are required to comprehend (listening and reading) the language and produce (speaking and writing) the language.
Among the four language skills, reading is one of the skills that should be learned well by the students because by having reading skill they will be easy to get information, knowledge, and science. Grabe and Soller (2002) state that
through reading, student can get many various’ information, such as: social,
related with their needs and sometimes the text had a high level in terms of language or grammar.
Actually, there were some various problems which are always happened in teaching learning process: such as: students’ interest in learning English has been low, the teacher mostly dominated the teaching learning process by tutoring, the teaching media has not supported the teaching learning process and the major
factor is the students’ course book is too monotonous and even sometimes the
students’ course book is not appropriate.
Therefore, teaching material has an important role in teaching learning process. The availability of teaching material should be in accordance with curriculum. Actually there are two kinds of curriculum that are used in Indonesia right now, they are: K13 (Kurikulum 2013) & KTSP (Kurikulum Tingkat Satuan Pendidikan). Romine (in Hamalik, 2012) states that curriculum is interpreted to mean all of the organized courses, activities, and experiences, which students have under direction of the school, whether in the classroom or. Curriculum has a big role on the growth and development of education. Government determines the curriculum for each region in Indonesia and it applies in a strategy plan that is called as Syllabus.
2003). The other things that should be had by the teacher is lesson plan. It is the planning or concept that is going to be implemented in the classroom. After having a lesson plan, a teacher has to have a textbook as a tool which support the quality of learning. One of the teaching material that is usually used by the teacher is a text book. A textbook means a created material design for teaching learning process and it can be defined as a book preparation for students in teaching learning process. Alshumaimeri (2015) states that textbooks are effective resources that help English teachers to activate daily life communication in their classes, English syllabus designers should take them into their consideration the necessity of integrating authentic materials within the text-based materials while designing an English textbook.
Based on the researcher observation at SMKN 10 Medan in Fashion Design Program (this program gives the students skill, knowledge and attitude in order to get a standard level as a worker which will be capable to develop their carrier, be a professional, competent and energetic in Fashion Design Industry). A preliminary observation was done to know the level of students’ comprehension of in reading texts. The observation was done through interview toward English teacher in SMKN 10 Medan. From the interview, the teacher said that the students of Fashion Design program were needed the specific reading text based on their needs, because they were using general textbook (English book for all genre of school such as SMA, SMK, MA, and MAK) and the reading materials on
Students’ English book that published by Education and Culture Ministry, in
which one of the reading materials, genre of report text, was not related to Fashion Design Program. The data as follow:
What is a reptile?
The word reptile means that which crawls. A reptile is an animal that crawls, though some prefer to swim. Reptiles usually have scales on their bodies, like fish, but they breathe through lungs as people do. Reptiles are cold-blooded. This means that the temperature of their blood changes when the air temperature change. Snakes, turtles, and lizard all reptiles.(Taken from Charlie Brown’s Cyclopedia. Volume 2.1990.Animal through the Ages: From Alligators to Zebra).
The data shows that the reading materials were inappropriate to the fashion design program. The students were very boring if they read which they have known before. The result was they are not enthusiastic and interesting to learn the reading materials, simply because they though it will not affect their Department and future job. The teacher admitted that students need more reading materials. Therefore, the teachers have tried to find other sources of reading material from internet, but the reading materials that they found in the internet sometimes could not meet with the students’ needs and they were not designed based on the syllabus.
By seeing the preliminary data we can conclude that there are many of students were not interesting with the existing materials just because all the topic of the texts are unrelated with their program, meaning that the function of ESP itself can decrease that problem, through ESP the teachers can analyze their
students’ needs and they also can design the appropriate reading materials for
students can improve their knowledge by having the suitable reading materials. The teaching material for vocational school should be good and suitable in their skill, so it will be created a professional generation. Based on Hutchinson’s and
Water’s theories, English for Specific Purposes (ESP) is a way of teaching and learning English for specialized subjects with some specific vocational or educational purpose in mind.
In this case the teacher needs to know the students’ needs, meaning that
teacher should adjust between the reading materials and learners’ majors. By knowing those things the teacher can develop some reading materials for the students. Developing the reading material is closely related to English for Specific Purposes, by understanding it the teacher can see the need analysis and course design as well. Before the teacher starting to make the new materials, he or she
should analyze the learners’ needs and consider the appropriate materials that are
going to be learned and after doing those things, the teacher can develop the
effective materials which are based on student’ needs. When the teacher can to do
this, the teaching-learning process in the classroom will be interested and it is going to be easy for the teachers and students to reach the learning goals.
B. The Problems of the Study

CONCLUSION AND SUGGESTION
After analyzing the data, the conclusion are drawn in the following,
1. The students of Fashion Design Program in SMK N 10 Medan were needed the English reading materials which could support their learning activity and learning environment. Their learning activity was supposed to increase their knowledge about Fashion and their learning environment was to prepare themselves for their future job. The English reading materials did not only help them to learn English but also complete the mission of the school.
2. The reading materials on general English book did not match to their needs and it should be developed. The English reading materials should be developed through five phases, they were; 1) Gathering information and data, 2) Analyzing data, 3) Designing materials based on the needs analysis, 4) Validating the new reading materials by experts (Fashion Design subject teacher and English lecturer), 5) Revising – developing material (Final product)
It was suggested that the English teacher should not just give the general English reading material. The teachers should consider the
students’ needs to choose the learning materials. The learning process can
be success if the reading materials were useful for their daily life and learning environment. The teacher should use authentic teaching materials based on the specific vocation which had by the students. The teachers should develop the reading materials if they found the materials were too general for the students. Students for Fashion design program by giving the material related to fashion design.
The institution should supervise the teachers and ensure them that
the reading materials supported the school’s mission. The institution also
should find the books which match to the students’ need. The number of
references of English reading materials had to be increased to ease the students learning English.
3. Other researcher
Other researchers should find many references to support in developing reading materials. The open questions of questionnaire should
be considered to give the students’ chance to deliver their wants in new
