Luthfi Retriansyah


This quasi-experimental research tries to find out the effectiveness of KWL on student’s comprehension of expository text and also observe how effective KWL is on the reading comprehension of the students across reading anxiety level. It was found that the difference in reading comprehension between student taught by using KWL and those taught by using conventional way is significant, the reading activities offered by KWL steps were effective to facilitate students in enhancing their comprehension in reading, and the difference between students with low reading anxiety and those with high reading anxiety taught by using KWL was significant as well. However, there was no interaction between the technique used and the reading anxiety because of the students’ personal factors and the appropriate reading materials.
