The sample was taken by a total sampling technique and the total number of samples was 20 students. It employed eight meetings (one meeting for pre-test, six meetings for treatment, and one meeting for post-test). It employed a reading test as an instrument. The results of this research showed that the Note-Taking Technique improved students' reading skill which focused on critics and creativity. It was proved by the students' post-test score that was higher than the students'  pre-test score. It also proved by the value of the t-test 6.29, which was higher than the value of t- table 2.093.
