Reading is a
process of recognition or interpretation of written materials. Sheng (2001:12)
stated that reading is a process of communication from the writer to the
reader. It involves letters, words, phrases, and clauses. Through reading, we can get many
knowledge and information.
In reading comprehension, the message to
be imposed in the written form and it is the most important element so the
students must recognize it because the primary purpose of reading
is to know the thoughts expressed in the printed material. Therefore,
reading with comprehension is very important way to get contact with the
natives and to know how they use their language in written form to understand
the content of
the text. It will be important to make reading activity as
effective as possible.
Based on the result interview of English
teacher at X1.IPS of SMA Muhammadiyah 2 Bontoala
Makassar he said that the mean score of the students’ achievement in reading
English at 2010-2011 academic year is very low, it is about 5,00 and
the target score is about 7,00. In this case, the students have to read
critically, and the teacher must select the suitable material to teach it.
Based on the students’ problem above, the
researcher will apply Mind Mapping technique in her research because it is a
suitable technique in learning reading. Mind Mapping is one technique to
develop reading comprehension of students because this technique is more
focused on the students’ ability in their group.
