One of the four major language skills is reading. By reading, we can take the information from the text, but many students are lazy to read, especially read an English text. The problem is they don’t understand what they read, whereas they often get questions (of a test). It is impossible to translate each word every time they are reading, so, it is better for English teacher to apply a different strategy. There are some problems discussed in this research, which are: (1) to what extent is the students’ reading competence of SMKN 2 Semarang taught by the teacher using QAR? (2) to what extent does QAR improve the students’ reading skill? (3) to what extent does QAR increase students’ motivation? The population of this study was the students of SMKN 2 Semarang. In this study, the object of the study was the tenth grade students of SMKN 2 Semarang in academic year 2011/2012. The objects in this research was the tenth grade students of SMKN 2 Semarang. The number of the objects was 32 students. There was an increase of scores of the students before and after using QAR. In pre-test, most of the students got bad marks, but in cycle I and cycle II, there was an increasing, from 81,56 in Cycle I to 88.44 in Cycle II. From the result of the study, the writer concludes that the reading comprehension skill of narative text of the students of SMKN 2 Semarang increased after using QAR Strategy. QAR Strategy can improve the quality of the learning process in the grade X of SMK Negeri 2 students. It is recommended to the next researchers to further develop this research in larger scale, especially in improving students achievement in reading comprehension of descriptive text.
