Abstract


The research was concerned with the inquiry on the influence of mind mapping and reading attitude on the fourth-grade pupils’ reading comprehension of Elementary School Palm Kids, Palembang. The problem of this study was to find out whether or not there was a significant effect of mind mapping on the fourth-grade pupils’ reading comprehension of Elementary School Palm Kids, Palembang. Mind mapping is a visual communication tool that uses visual symbols to express ideas and concepts, to convey meaning.

Findings showed that there was a significant effect of mind mapping and reading attitude on the fourth-grade pupils’ reading comprehension of Elementary School Palm Kids, Palembang. The conclusion suggests that the alternative hypothesis (Ha) was accepted while the null hypothesis (Ho) was rejected.
