The method used in this research was a collaborative action research. The research was conducted in two cycles at the 8E grade students of SMP Negeri 16 Surakrta from September 21st to October 25th 2011. There are two kinds of data: qualitative and quantitative data. The qualitative data were collected by using observation, questionnaire, and interview. Then, the quantitative data were collected by using test. Qualitative data were analyzed by using 5 stages suggested by Burns (1999: 157- 159) as follows: assembling the data, coding the data, comparing the data, building interpretation, and reporting the outcomes. The quantitative data were analyzed by using descriptive statistics. The research findings show that the use of Paired Reading could improve students’ reading skill and classroom situation of English class. The improvement of students’ reading skill includes: (1) Students are able to get the main idea of the text; (2) Students are able to get implicit information of the text; (3) Students are able to get the explicit information from the text; (4) Students are able to guess the meaning of word (vocabulary); (5) Students are able to determine the generic structure of the text. Besides, the improvement of students’ reading skill can be seen from the improvement of the mean score of pre–test, post–test 1, and post–test 2, those are 46.37, 61.86 and 72.45. The improvement of classroom situations includes: (1) Student’s behavior changes. They do not do useless activity during the lesson; (2) Almost all of students give more attention to the teacher’s explanation; (3) Students are active; they answer and share with the other students; (4) The students are interested in the lesson and discuss with pair; (5) They are not silent and give response—students are confident to say something to the teacher; and (6) Students are not shy and afraid to ask if they have difficulties. Paired Reading can be applied in teaching learning process. By implementing paired reading, the students can improve their reading skill. The researcher hopes what the researcher has done will inspire the English teachers to conduct paired reading in their classroom.
