Abstrak

Almost of countries in the world use English to communicate. Most of important information and knowledge written are in English. Based on the School-Based Curriculum, reading is one of the major skills that have the important role for students especially in increasing their knowledge and experience. However, many students get difficulties in reading material. Reading, Encoding, Annotating, and Pondering (REAP) is one of the teaching technique that can be used in teaching reading to develop the students reading skill. Therefore, I apply REAP for the eighth grade students of SMP N 1 Kalinyamatan Jepara to improve their reading comprehension of recount text because they still have difficulties in understanding reading English text. The objective of this research is to find out whether there is a significant difference between the reading comprehension of the eighth grade students of SMPN 1 Kalinyamatan Jepara in academic year 2011/2012 taught by using Reading, Encoding, Annotating and Pondering (REAP) technique and those taught by using Four Learning Circles. To answer the research question in the statement of the problem, I hold an experimental research. In this research, I use posttest only control group design in which it just uses posttest for the experimental and control groups. The subject of this research was the eighth grade students of SMP N 1 Kalinyamatan Jepara in academic year 2011/2012. I took VIII B as control class and VIII A as experimental class as the sample by using cluster random sampling. The hypothesis states that there is significant difference between the reading comprehension of the eighth grade students of SMPN 1 Kalinyamatan Jepara in academic year 2011/2012 taught by using Reading, Encoding, Annotating and Pondering (REAP) technique and those taught by using Four Learning Circles. The result of the research shows that there is significantly progress for the students in the reading comprehension of recount text taught by using REAP. The mean and standard deviation who taught by using REAP are 94.88 and 8.89 which categorized “excellent”. Meanwhile, the mean and standard deviation who taught by using Four Learning Circles are 75.02 and 9.91 which categorized “good”. The t-observation (to) is 8.95. It is higher than the t-table (tt) 2.00 in the level of significance 0.05 and the degree of freedom (df) 70, (to=8.95 > tt=2.00). Thus, Ho is denied and H1 is confirmed. Therefore, the hypothesis of the research that states whether there is significant difference between the reading comprehension of recount text of the eight grade students of SMP N 1 Kalinyamatan in academic year 2011/2012 taught by using Reading, Encoding, Annotating and Pondering (REAP) technique and those taught by using Four Learning Circles is “confirmed”. Based on the result of this research, it means that REAP can improve the reading comprehension of the students. Therefore, the English teacher can apply REAP as an alternative technique in teaching process in order to help the students improve their reading ability.
