    Abstract

    The purpose of this research was to find out whether there is a significant difference of using RT strategy to the 3 rdsemester students’ reading skill at reading comprehension course. The sample of the research was the third semester students at English study programme of Sriwijaya State Polytechnic in the academic year 2013/2014 consisting of fourty eight students. The RT strategy developed by Palincsar and Brown was modified into three steps of instruction consisting of nine activities. A quasi-experimental design of the pretest-posttest non-equivalent control group design was applied. To collect the data, fourty multiple choice questions of reading comprehension were used. Pearson Product-Moment Correlation, and Split-half Method + Spearman-Brown of the test were > 0.312 and 0.834. Kolmogorov-Smirnov test and Levene test were 0.200 and 0.570, indicating the normality and homogeneity of data distribution. The findings from the pairedsample t-test showed that students who were taught with modified RT attained higher scores (14.792) than those who were not (6.042). Since the modified RT strategy had a significant effect on the students’ reading comprehension achievement, modified RT strategy can be applied in teaching reading comprehension. Key Words: cooperative learning, reading comprehension, quasi-experimental design, reciprocal teaching
