Abstract


The objectives of this study were (1) to find out whether or not there was a significant
difference in students’ narrative reading achievement before and after they were taught by
using multifunctional folklore card and Paragraph Shrinking strategy and (2) to find out
whether or not there was a significant difference in students’ narrative reading
achievement between those who were taught by using multifunctional folklore card and
Paragraph Shrinking strategy and those who were not. This study was conducted by using
quasi experimental and non-equivalent control group design was applied. The population
were the tenth graders of MAN Sakatiga Indralaya and the sample of this study was 82
students of two classes, which were divided into control group and experimental group.
The data were collected using a set of reading test which consist of 30 multiple choice
questions for pretest and posttest. The data obtained were analyzed by using t-test: paired
sample t-test and independent sample t-test. The result of paired sample t-test showed the
mean score of pretest in experimental group was 53.70 and the mean score of posttest was
74.70 (mean diff=21.00 and ρ.value=.000), it means that there was a significant different
in narrative reading achievement before and after they were taught by using
multifunctional folklore card and paragraph shrinking strategy. Furthermore, based on the
result of independent sample t-test, it revealed that the result of posttest control was 49.34
and experimental group was 74.70 (mean diff=25.36, and ρ .value=.000), so there was a
significant difference in reading achievement between the students who were taught by
using MFC and paragraph shrinking strategy and those who were not. In conclusion, there
was an enhancement of students’ narrative reading achievement by using multifunctional
folklore card and paragraph shrinking strategy.
