Abstract

This research focused on the effect of Semantic Mapping on Students Reading Comprehension at grade VIII SMPN 1 Angkola Muaratais. The students’ problems in Reading were: 1)Students did not have many vocabularies. Mastering vocabulary is one way to comprehend the sentence. But in reality, they did not have many vocabularies.2)Students do not know about the components of the paragraph so do not know the main idea, the content is also the conclusion of the text,3)students find it difficult to understand the text they read. The last strategy used by teacher is still conventional. Finally, the students were difficult in every fields of their learning process such as listening, speaking, reading and writing. The formulation is How far is students’ reading comprehension descriptive text before using semantic mapping strategies at grade VIII students of SMPN I Angkola Muaratais?.How far is students’ reading comprehension descriptive text after using semantic mapping strategies at grade students VIII SMPN I Angkola Muaratais?.Is there the significant effect of semantic mapping strategies of students’ reading comprehension descriptive text at grade VIII students SMPN I Angkola Muaratais?.The purpose of this research was to know whether there is the significant effect of Semantic Mapping on Students Reading Comprehension at Grade VIII SMPN 1 Angkola Muaratais. The method used in this research was experimental research. Two classes were chosen randomly as the sample. They were VIII-A as experimental class that consisted of 24 students and VIII-B as control class that consisted of 24 students. It was taken after conducting normality and homogeneity test. The data was derived from pre-testand post-test. To analyze the data, the researcher used t-test formula. After analyzing the data, the researcher found that mean score of experimental class after using Semantic Mapping was higher than control class. Mean score of experimental class before using Semantic Mapping was 58.62 and mean score after using Semantic Mapping was 81.91. Meanwhile, the mean score of control class in post test was 71.87. Besides it, the score of tcount was bigger than ttable(4.462>0.021). It meantthat the hypothesis alternative (Ha) was accepted. There was a significant effect of Semantic Mapping toward Reading Comprehension at grade VIII students of SMPN 1 Angkola Muaratais.
