Abstract

The objective of the study is to know the effect of directed reading - thinking activity on students’ critical thinking abilities at English Department Politeknik Negeri Sriwijaya Palembang in the academic year 2018–2019. This research applied a quantitative approach of quasi-experimental research. The sampling technique used simple random sampling. The number of samples in this study were 36 students. In this design there are two groups, namely one experimental group and one control group. The experimental group was treated using the directed reading thinking activity while the control group was given treatment using guided reading procedure. The data collection technique used in this study was a test. In analyzing the data obtained from the test, researchers divided the student scores into two groups Data were analyzed using (SPSS). The results show that there is a significant difference between students who learnt using the directed reading thinking activity with students who were taught using guided reading procedure. This can be seen from the results of the analysis using intergroup t-tests. From the post-test data of the experimental group and the control group, the t-count was greater than t table (3.953> 2.00) at the 5% significance level.
