Abstract: This study reports the findings of action research on the development of students’ literacy skill particularly through Direct and Explicit Comprehension Strategy Insctruction (DECSI) in English literature class of the English Education Program Department in Indonesia. Drawing on data of students’ reflective journals, observation and interview, empirical findings showed that the students engaged actively in text identifying, word defining, class presentation, vocabulary enforcement and reflection through Direct and Explicit Comprehension Strategy Instruction (DECSI). Empirical data also revealed that through role scaffolding by teachers and peer support, the student participants engaged in the discovery of English literature vocabulary by documenting unfamiliar or interesting words from their English literature readings and by exploring different meanings of vocabulary using electronic dictionaries, corpus software called BNC and skell.sketchengine.co.uk. The other research findings sh owed that student teachers had enhanced of being autonomous learners. The findings suggest that DECSI can be a catalyst for engaging students in post-reading tasks such as writing a summary of the English literature text and promoting language awareness and improving comprehension as well.
