Abstract

Various kinds of English texts are presented in Senior High School, but most of the students often have problems in understanding the texts because they cannot comprehend the texts well. This might be because they have never been exposed to the reading strategies and never known that there are strategies for reading. This study is to investigate which cognitive reading strategies frequently used by the first grade of Senior High School students in Rancaekek in enhancing their reading comprehension. In obtaining the data, 'A self-report questionnaire' was administered to the 30 students and they are asked to give their responses toward the strategy that they used in reading. The data were thenanalyzed by using instruments adapted from Format Cognitive Reading Strategies. The result shows that there were only 8 strategies that are frequently used by almost half of the participants in this study. It can be concluded that the students should be informed with cognitive reading strategies in helping them to comprehend the text. And last, it is suggested that, for further study to investigate not only cognitive reading strategy but also metacognitive strategy.
