Abstract

This study aims at stimulating students’ critical attitude when reading and writing. Reading should not be passive since it needs critical thinking to understand the text. What is presented in the text describes a discourse; therefore, the students should communicate with the text to get the points. The discourse is related to context and a text as a media. As the media of the discourse, a text encourages students to think critically so that they can give some comments and inputs after reading. The comments and inputs, then, are manifested in writing so it shows a complex activity which contains students’ comprehension. In other words, writing becomes an indicator to evaluate the result of the reading activities which have been completed before. Semiotics concerns with signs and symbols. It provides certain meanings both explicitly and implicitly. Students may interpret them with their own views according to what they think. Critical thinking takes its role in probing the signs and symbols within the text. The process of making interpretation is a way to communicate themselves with the text because they are certainly engaged when exploring ideas and associating information then developing them into a written form. The subject of the study is the students of Pre Advanced Reading and Writing in the third year of Ahmad Dahlan University, Yogyakarta.
