 2.1   The assumption underlining communicative approach.
As we know that reading newspapers and magazines, watching television, listening to the radio and seeing movie is very interesting. From all of those activities, we can feel something as like happy, sad enjoy, love, hate, fear and worry. And it is called literature. Robit and Jacob ( 1987: 2) state that literature exercises our emotions through the arousal of interest, concern, tension, excitement, hope, fear, regret, laughter, and sympathy. By reading, we will find another hypothesis through the story that has been read by us.

He also tries to express the experts’ idea of education as the main ideas in order to be used as the basic premise in presenting hypothesis.

The main problems which relate to primary theories the underlining meanings related to the main problems to be discussed in this thesis.
1.      The basic assumption underlining communicative approach.
2.      The communicative approach steps.
3.      Learning achievement.
4.      Learning achievement factors.

2.2 The assumption underlining communicative approach.
-     Language is a system for expression the meaning.
-     The primary function of language is for interaction and communication.
-     The structure of language reflects it’s functional and communicative used.
-     The primary units of language are not really it’s grammatically and structural feature, but categories of functional and communicative meaning as exemplified in discourse.

2.4 Learning achievement.
Actually there are some meanings and understanding from learning achievement, but here the writer will take one of the understandings from that statement. Learning achievement is the result having been reached by the learners after achieving learning activities. It is logical that learning is the learners’ problem even for everybody from their childhood until adult. Learning is the most important thing for humans’ life.
Related to the above opinion, therefore it can be understood that every change obtained by the learners is not thoroughly called learning. That change, however appears from his maturity or his age. Some say that learning is mark or score gained from what the learners have done by themselves, in relation to the hobby and communicative practice with the method used by the teacher in presenting Reading Comprehension to his learners.
Because of that, the motivation to study Reading Comprehension by using communicative approach used by the teacher will have the most important role in attaining successful learning for the learners especially in learning Reading Comprehension.

2.4 Learning achievement factors.
The factors influencing learning achievement are from outside can be an instrument used in learning and can be environment which can influence them, and the factors coming from the learners’ physics and the motivation and the way to think such as:
Calm sense, unquiet sense and those will influence the learners in getting success of learning achievement.

2.5 Some theoretical assumption
The basic consideration of the theoretical assumption is the consideration which has to be proved its truth. In learning a language with communicative approach, especially Reading Comprehension, the teacher must be able to decide the most suitable method for his students. The choice of good method will influence the success of learning teaching process.

According to the title there are two variable in research they are: independent variable and dependent variable. Independent variable is ’ Teaching Reading Comprehension with communicative approach through songs and games ’ and as its dependent variable is ’ Learning achievement of the eight year students of SMP 4 Gerung.
In obtaining the data of Learning Reading Comprehension, the writer used questionnaire and test method. The use of questionnaire method was to know how far the learners’ hobby in Learning Reading Comprehension especially with communicative approach. The writer used the objective test in collecting the needed data.
From the result of the tests and questionnaire, the teacher will managed than to classify the learners’ achievement, the good ones and the bad ones in Learning Reading Comprehension. Then, the writer used criterion research that the correct answer got 5 score for each objective test item. The total numbers of those items were 20. So the total scores of the tests are 100 for the learners who answer all the tests correctly, and for the learners who answers all the tests wrongly will get zero score (0).
To know the range of the classification the writer used the following criteria:

A. 90 – 100   :  very good

The learners who answer gladly got score 5, the learners who did not answer got score 2 and the learners who did not answer very gladly got score 1. The learners who answered 20 items very gladly got score 100, the learners who answered gladly got score 80, and the learners who did not answer gladly get score 40 and the learners who did not answer very gladly got score 20. To know the result of the above classification rank, the writer used the following criteria:

C.     60 – 69   ( sufficient)
D.    40 – 59   ( insufficient)
E.       0 – 39  ( very bad)

Based on the result of the above classification, the learners who have good interest in Reading Comprehension will have very good learning achievements, but for those who do not like learning Reading Comprehension, will have sufficient learning achievements and the learners who do not have motivation in learning Reading Comprehension will have very bad learning achievement.
