|Abstract:||There are so many activities that can be done to make the students understand about the text that the students read. One of the activities is using semantic mapping. Semantic mapping: mind mapping, idea mapping, word webbing, etc. is a term which describes a variety of strategies designed to show how key word or concept are related to one another through graphic representations. Mapping is also an effective technique for teaching reading skill and textual patterns of organization.
This study investigated the effectiveness of semantic mapping and K.W.L. strategy, on reading comprehension in English. Description of the K-W-L technique; K=what you know; W= what
you want to know; L= what you have learned. It is specified for reading comprehension passages because reading skill is not easy matter for students. So, English learners are instructed on how to apply semantic mapping strategy as well as K.W.L. strategy to their reading process in pursuit of gaining reading comprehension skill. |
