ABSTRACT

This research aimed to investigate how explicit and implicit strategy training affected the usage of Cognitive reading strategies by students. Modified Cognitive Academic Language Learning Approach (CALLA) was employed as an approach to teach Cognitive reading strategies to the students. The design of this research was non randomized control group pretest - posttest design. There were two classes of second grader students of SMAN 8 Bandar Lampung as the sample of this research. To gather the data, questionnaire was employed in this research. The results showed that the usage of cognitive reading strategies in class which was taught explicitly is better than the implicit one. Out of ten strategies, there are four strategies which differ significantly and positively between students who were taught in experimental (explicit) and control (implicit) class. In short, explicit strategy training gives better effect to students since their usage of cognitive reading strategies is better than students who were taught the strategiesimplicitly.
