This condition was caused by several factors such as, students' low motivation in learning English, students' lack of vocabulary, students' low ability in mastering the reading ability, the materials of the reading text, and the monotonous teaching methods. Accordingly, for the improvement of the students' reading comprehension ability, the implementation of an appropriate technique in teaching reading is urgently needed. Reciprocal Teaching Technique with its four strategies: predicting, clarifying, questioning, and summarizing, therefore, is applied to cope with their problems in reading comprehension. The objective of this research is to find out if Reciprocal Teaching Technique can improve reading comprehension in recount text of the eighth grade students of SMP 1 Jati Kudus in academic year 2012/2013.
