Abstract

Using strategy is beneficial to make reading easier, more effective, and more comprehensible. Dealing with the notion that students must be independent in reading brings up the inquiry of what strategy helps to develop reading comprehension skill. Through a quasi-experimental study involving test before and after intervention, the study aims to find out the effectiveness of reciprocal teaching strategy on developing students' reading comprehension skill. The results reveal that students are interested in using reciprocal teaching strategy, and their achievements in reading comprehension also improves significantly. In conclusion, the study shows that reciprocal teaching strategy is effective to develop students' reading comprehension skill, as proven by significant difference in the result between the experimental and the control groups (to = 3.78 > t-table = 2.000). The study has implications for both teachers and students to enrich the strategy and media in teaching and learning reading comprehension effectively.
