THE EFFECTIVENESS OF NUMBER HEAD TOGETHER (NHT) IN TEACHING READING COMPREHENSION AT TENTH GRADE STUDENTS OF MAN 4 KEDIRI
The aim of research is to know the effectiveness of Number Head Together (NHT) in Teaching Reading Comprehension at tenth grade students of MAN 4 Kediri. Quantitative post-test only control group design used the approach to design this research. The subject of the research is tenth grade student of MAN 4 Kediri. The subject were X MIA 1 class as experimental class which consist of 36 students and X MIA 2 class as control class which consist of 36 students. To get data, the researcher use test.

Meanwhile, the mean score in control class belongs to good category with mean score 77.22. The result of statistical computation value of the independent sample t-test is 3.050 with t table within degree of freedom (df) 70 at 5% significant level is 2.647. It can be seen that t-statistic value is higher than t-table.
