Abstract: Critical reading for pedagogical purpose, as constructed by Wallace (1999), proposes some principles that are applicable to be used by teachers. This research is aimed at describing the students’ perception on the employment of Wallace’s framework in the teaching of critical reading. The survey was conducted to 78 students, after accomplishing one-semester course. The questionnaire consists of three representative features of the framework. The first is field, on how the writer describes what is going on in the text. The second is mode, on how the writer organizes the content in the text. The last is tenor, on how the writer indicates his or her relationship with the readers. There are 50,2% students who perceived that field aspect is understandable, 48,2% students who marked that mode aspect is understandable, and 54% students who agreed that tenor aspect is undertsandable. However, the margin is relatively close for the affirmative and the opposite side. It ranges 1,5%: 1%. The posi tive remark of 1,5% showed that some contributing activities have influenced the students’ critical reading ability. T-test results show that discussing texts presents the most significant factor (0.016), followed by think aloud practice (0.022), and checking the dictionaries (0.03). (More)
