The form of this research is classroom action research. The subjects were 28 students of grade XI IIS 2 students of SMA Taman Mulia Kubu Raya in Academic Year 2019/2020. The data were collected using tests, observation checklists, and field notes. From the observation checklist and field notes, it was found that all of the students participated to the activity and did their task well. Teaching reading comprehension on narrative text by using story map technique positively helps the students organize their ideas into a map which help them to integrate the concepts and idea from the story. The students gave positive response to the explanation of narrative text and could use the story mapping technique properly and the students’ mean score improved from 64.29 in cycle one (36% students passed the minimum score) to 76.08 in cycle two (72% students passed the minimum score).
