The experimental method was used to conduct the study. The sample was taken by using purposive sampling method which consisted 32 in each group. To select the experimental and control groups, a flip coin was used. Therefore, class VIII 3 was the experimental group whereas VIII 4 as the control group. Multiple choice was used to collect the data. The data obtained were analyzed by the ttest The value of t-obtained was 3.280, at the significant level p<0.05 in two-tailed testing with df = 62, the critical value of t-table = 1.999. Since the value of t-obtained was higher than t-table, the null hypotheses (Ho) was rejected and alternative hypotheses (Ha) was accepted. It meant that there was a significant difference in students' reading achievement between the students who were taught by using (NHT) technique and than of those who were not.
