Abstract


The objectives of this study were (1) to find out whether or not there was a
significant difference in students’ functional reading achievement before and after
they were taught through Collaborative Strategic Reading (CSR) and (2) to find out
whether or not there was a significant difference in functional reading achievement
between the students who were taught through CSR and those who were not. This
study was a quasi-experimental research method that applied non-equivalent control
group research design. The population of this study was the eighth grade students of
one of the junior high schools in Palembang in academic year 2015 - 2016 and the
number of sample was 76 students, that was selected by using purposive sampling
technique. The data of this study were collected by using a pre-test and a post-test
and were analyzed statistically by using paired and independent sample t-test. The
results of this study revealed that (1) there was a significant difference in students’
functional reading achievement before and after they were taught through CSR
(mean diff=18.87, and ρ-value=.000) and (2) there was a significant difference in
functional reading achievement between the students who were taught through CSR
and those who were not (mean diff=12.11, and ρ-value=.000). Therefore, it can be
concluded that CSR is effective in improving the students' functional reading
achievement.
