This study aimed to answer the formulation of the problems which are to know how the students’ reading comprehension before and after being taught using Cornell-note taking technique at SMAN 1 MOJO and to know is there any significant effect of using Cornell-note taking technique to students’ reading comprehension at the eleventh grade of SMAN 1 MOJO. The researcher uses pre-experimental quantitative design namely one group pre-test post-test design. The sample of this research was 32 students of XI MIPA 2 class of SMAN 1 MOJO in academic year 2018/2019. From the calculation obtained from pre-test and post-test, the results of this research show that the total scores were gotten by students is increasing after they were being taught using Cornell-note taking techniques and each total in the pre-test was 1945 with a percentage of 60.78% and increase in post-test is 2550 with a percentage of 79.68%. Therefore, this study shows that Cornell-note taking technique has a significant effect on students’ reading comprehension of SMAN 1 MOJO Kediri. It caused the result showed that t-score is 16.600 with significant (2-tailed) value is lower than 0.01, it means that alternative hypothesis (Ha) is accepted. Thus, the researcher suggests for the teacher to guide the students slowly and should be smart in time management when applying this technique. For the next researcher, it is suggested to investigate the effect of this technique on reading indicators that still got the low score, other genres of the text with the various types of subjects and on different samples and levels.
