ABSTRAK
This research is intended to know the effectiveness of Jigsaw Model to teach reading viewed from the students' interest. The teaching model as the experimental variable is of two kinds, Jigsaw Model and Direct Instruction Model. The interest is divided into high and low interest.
The research was conducted in SMP N 3 Kartasura. The reseach method was the experimental study. The population of the research is the eighth grade students of SMP N 3 Kartasura in 2008/2009 academic year. The writer used cluster random sampling to get the sample. The technique of collecting the data was non test (questionnaire) and a test (reading test). The two imstruments were valid and reliable after both were tested. The data of reading test were analyzed by using multifactors analysis 2x2, then followed by analysing it using Tuckey test to find which group is better or which model is more effective.
Based on the results of inferential analysis of the data, there are some conclusions that can be drawn. First, Jigsaw model is more effective than Direct Instruction model for teaching reading because the mean score of reading test of the students who are taught by using Jigsaw model (69.6) is higher than the students who are taught by using Direct Instruction model (65.18). Second, Jigsaw is more effective for teaching reading for the students having high interest because the mean score of the reading test of the students who are taught by using Jigsaw (78.18) is higher than the students who are taught by using Direct Instruction model (62.73). Third, Direct Instruction model is more effective for for teaching reading for the students having low interest because the mean score of the reading test of the students the students who are taught by using Direct Instruction model (67.64) is higher than the students who are taught by using Jigsaw (65.18). There is an interaction between teaching model and the degree of the students' interest.
It is hoped that the teacher can select suitable teaching model for teaching reading which is appropriate for the students having high or low interest. The teaching model used in teaching reading depends on the degree of interest of the students.
