The instruments for collecting data is reading comprehension test. The test is divided into two parts, namely the pre-test and the post-test, which are given to each sample. The researcher finds the total mean score of post-test in experimental group is 79,45 and the total mean score post-test in the control group is 72,22. After calculating the data from all points, the t-test score is 2,120. Then, the researcher consulted the value on the t-table, which has a significance of 5% and the value is 1,672. Therefore, the researcher finds that t-test is higher than the t-table (2,120 > 1,672). It can be concluded that Ha ­is accepted while Ho is rejected. The use of Herringbone Technique is significantly affect to the tenth-grade students in comprehending recount text at SMA Swasta Kampus Nommensen Pematangsiantar.
