Abstract

This present study was aimed to examine the student’s perception in relation with the modified group investigation (GI) effectiveness in teaching reading comprehension for junior high schools’ students in Indonesia. The data were collected from the students at the 8th grade of SMPN (junior high school) in Bandar Lampung by administering a questionnaire on the students’ perception. The results of the questionnaire show that the students got a positive perception on the effectiveness of modified group investigation. Specifically, the data show that the modified GI enables students to a better understanding of the material, facilitates the students to express their ideas freely, and promotes the students’ active learning process and collaborative work in group.
