The subjects of this research were two classes in the tenth grade: the first class was X TB.A as the experimental group and the second class was X TB.B as the control group. The methodology of research was quantitative research especially quasi-experimental research. The data collection method was written test. The data was collected through the test; pre-test and post-test. The collected data was analyzed statistically by using SPSS 16.0. The result of the research showed that (1) the mean of pre-test of experimental group was 66.29 and the mean of post-test was 76.53. The mean of pre-test of control group was 62.53 and the mean of post-test was 65.73. (2) The mean of post-test was higher than the mean of pre-test. The mean score in experimental group increased 10.24 points. Contrastly, the control group increased 3.2 points. (3) The result of hypothesis test by Mann-Whitney, p-value (Asymp. 2 tailed) = 0.001, p<α(0.05). Thus, the hypothesis was accepted. Moreover, the result of effect size formulation in this study was 1.097. It can be conclude that there was a significant difference of the students reading comprehension in the descriptive text being taught by using Constructivist Approach at the tenth grade students of SMK Muhammadiyah Suruh in the academic year of 2018/2019.
