Abstract

This article is about teaching English on reading comprehension by using Question - Answer Relationship (QAR) Strategy for Indonesian Students in Junior High School. It aims to identify the effects of Question - Answer Relationship strategy (QAR) on reading comprehension ability of EFL students at eighth grade of junior high school in Solok, West Sumatera, Indonesia. The design of the research was quasi experimental. The population of this research was eighth grade students of SMPN 2 Kota Solok in academic year 2016/2017 which consisted of 11 classes (356 students). The samples were chosen by using cluster random sampling; VIII.1 as experimental class (32 students) and VIII.2 as the control class (32 students). The instrument was applied by using reading comprehension test. It was tried out first to other group which had similar capabilities to both experimental and control classes. The data were analyzed by using Liliefors test for normality testing, Variance test for homogeneity testing and T-test for hypothesis testing. The result of this research shows that the students who were taught by using Question - Answer Relationship (QAR) Strategy had better reading comprehension than those who were taught by using conventional strategy. It can be concluded that QAR strategy had a significant result on students' reading comprehension than conventional strategy.
