Abstract

As one of skills which should be mastered by the students in learning English, the students still find reading difficult. This is proven by the students‟ score from the preliminary research. The mean of the students from the preliminary research was 63.10 for control class and 59.66 for experimental class. Thus, the new strategy was proposed, the strategy was synthesizing strategy. The objective of this research is to know whether or not there is a significant effect of using synthesizing strategy towards students‟ reading comprehension on narrative text at the first semester of the eighth grade at MTS An-Nur Terbanggi besar in 2017/2018 academic year. The quasi experimental of quantitative method is used in this research because the sample of the research was not randomized and aimed at improving the students‟ reading comprehension. The population of this research was the eighth grade of MTS An-Nur Terbanggi Besar. The sample was taken out from the population which consisted of three classes; they were try-out class, control class and experimental class. Try-out class was a trial class before the test was administered to the control and experimental class. The treatments were held in five meetings. Reading aloud as a regular strategy was used in control class and the synthesizing strategy was used in experimental class. In collecting the data, pre-test and post-test were given for both classes. The data which had been collected was analyzed by using SPSS (Statistical Program for Social Science) version 19. The independent sample t-test was used to test the hypotheses because the sample was taken from two different samples and to compare both control and experimental class‟ mean. Based on the data analysis which was computed by using SPSS, the value of significant generated Sig (Pvalue) was 0.001 and α = 0.05. In other words, Ha was accepted and Ho was rejected because Sig (Pvalue) 0.001 < 0.05 (α). It can be concluded that there was a significant effect of using synthesizing strategy towards students‟ reading comprehension on narrative text at the first semester of the eighth grade at MTS An-Nur Terbanggi Besar in 2017/2018 academic year. Keywords: Reading Comprehension, Synthesizing Strategy.
