Abstract: The main objective of this study was to find out the role .• 1 • of note-taking in improving reading comprehension of grade eleven students in Addis Ababa. In order to test this, an experiment was conducted in which one hundred ten subjects were randomly selected from one school. The subjects were divided into two groups: the control group, who was taught teading through the traditional method, and the experimental group,whichwas taught reading through the frameworks of note-taking. A Pre-test was given to both the control and experimental groups to determine if there was any significant difference between them. Statistical computations, however, showed that there was no significant difference. After six weeks, a post test was administered to both the control and experimental groups. To determine the significant difference between the means of the two groups a T-test at 0.05 level of confidence was applied. The analysis showed that the experimental group performed better than the control group. Thus, it was concluded that the development of note-taking skill in the form of outlines, diagrams, and charts was .successful.
