Reading has been considered the most important skill for foreign English learners in academic. There were two categories of problem were found by researcher after analyzing the first category is the students' reading comprehension problems. One of the strategies for teaching English reading comprehension is Collaborative Strategic Reading (CSR). CSR is originally designed by Klingner and Vaughn in 1996 that combines modified reciprocal teaching and cooperative learning (Bremer, Vaughn, Clapper & Ae-Hwa, 2002). CSR consists of four comprehension strategies that students apply before, during, and after reading in small cooperative groups. These reading strategies are: (a) preview (before reading), (b) click and clunk (during reading), (c) get the gist (during reading), and (d) wrap up (after reading)”. In this research use classroom action research (CAR). This research was conducted through the following procedure: (1) preliminary study to know the real problem face the students, (2) planning, (3) implementing, (4) observation, (5) reflection (Kemmis and Mc Taggart: 1998). The result in the cycle 2 (test 3) the mean score has improved 5 point, the mean score in the cycle 1 (test 2) was 76.3 and in the cycle 2 (test 3) was 81.6. There were 4 students failed reach the KKM, and there were 31 students reach the KKM it means 89%. And the CSR strategy can improve students’ reading skill at ten grade students of SMK PGRI 1 Lamongan.
