Abstract

This study aimed to find the empirical evidence of the Effect of Make a Match Strategy on Students' Reading Comprehension of Descriptive Text at the Seventh-Grade of MTs Negeri 4 Jakarta in Academic Year 2018/2019. The population of this study was the seventh-grade of MTs Negeri 4 Jakarta. The sample was 60 students selected by purposive sampling technique and was divided into two classes; experimental class and controlled class. The method used in the study was a quantitative method using a quasi-experimental design. The research instruments of this study were 25 multiple choice questions and 5 matching words. The data were analyzed using the t-test. The result of the data showed the diversities of experimental and controller class post-test scores in reading comprehension of descriptive text. The post-test score of the experimental class was increased than the pre-test score after applying the strategy on students' reading comprehension. Also, the effect size result was 0.9. It proved that Make a Match strategy was effective to use at a moderate level on students' reading comprehension of descriptive text at the seventh-grade of MTs Negeri 4 Jakarta in the academic year 2018/2019. Thus, to use this strategy in teaching reading comprehension of descriptive text, the teacher cannot teach the theory of descriptive text specifically because the activity needs more practice in the classroom.
