Abstract

Understanding poetry is at the stage of enjoying poetry in the activity of appreciating poetry. From the stage of enjoying this poem, poetry lovers can determine their attitude towards the poetry that is read or heard. By integrating reading and writing, poetry readers can enjoy poetry in depth. Therefore, this study aims to describe the potential of the CIRC learning model in influencing the ability to understand poetry. A total of 28 male and female students were selected as participants in the study. The instrument used to collect research data is a multiple choice test understanding poetry. This model is used by the way the lecturer places students in cooperative learning activities according to the learning objectives, students understand the subject matter together in groups by way of reading to each other and finding keywords according to the learning objectives and presenting the results of group collaboration in the form of class discussions. Group discussions and class discussions provide opportunities for students to voice their opinions about the contents of poetry. Students who have low abilities are motivated to learn because of teamwork. The CIRC model has the potential to improve student language skills, improve social skills among students, and have a positive impact on reading comprehension, especially understanding poetry.
