The researcher used Classroom Action Research (CAR) to conduct this research. There were 22 students as a subject. There were two cycles, each cycle consisted of two meetings. Based on the description of the research results and discussion, it was concluded that implementing the MURDER strategy can improve students' reading comprehension. In the first cycle, only two students achieve a passing grade, meaning 90.9% of students studying at the SMP Islam 2 Kota Ternate failed the passing exam.
