Abstract

Reading is one of necessary skill that should be mastered by students because it can help students to acquire knowledge and get information. Based on the preliminary research, the researcher found that the students at SMAN 2 Natar faced difficulty in reading comprehension especially in narrative text. The researcher applied thieves technique to solve this problem. Thieves technique is a pre-reading strategy that set the purpose for reading using easily remembered acronym. Students learn how “steal” information from the title, headings, introduction, every first sentence in sentence, visual / vocabulary, end and summary. The objective of this research is to find out whether there is influence of using thieves technique toward students’ reading comprehension in narrative text at the second semester of the tenth grade at SMAN 2 Natar in the academic year 2017/2018. The research design was quasi experimental design. The sample of the research was 55 students taken from tenth grade of SMAN 2 Natar which was chosen through random sampling technique. The sample of the research was two classes consisting of 28 students for experimental class and 27 students for control class. In the experimental class, the researcher used thieves technique and in control class the researcher used reading aloud technique to teach students. In collecting the data, the researcher conducted pre-test and post-test by serving a multiple choice test which consists of 25 items for each test. The data were analyzed by using SPSS to compute independent sample t-test. The result of statistical calculation, the mean score of pre-test in experimental class is 51.64 and 80.85 for post-test. Meanwhile, the mean score of pre-test in control class is 51.41 and 73.21 for post-test. Moreover, in the table of hypothetical test, it can be seen that Sig = 0.011 and α = 0.05. It proved that the null hypothesis (Ho) was rejected and the alternative hypothesis (Ha) was accepted because Sig < α = 0.05. In the other words, thieves technique could significantly improve students’ ability in reading comprehension in narrative test at the tenth grade student of SMAN 2 Natar in the academic year of 2017/2018.
