The data were obtained by giving pretest, treatment to experimental group, posttest for both CIRC and reciprocal for students with different level of motivation. As the result, there was significant different between CIRC and reciprocal and positive interaction between different level of students motivation. The result of the study revealed that CIRC was effective to teach reading to the high and lower motivation with significances 4.662 > 4.113. also, Reciprocal strategy was effective to teach highand lower students with significances 10.489 > 4.113. There is interaction of motivation and learning strategy in this study. It can be concluded, CIRC and Reciprocal startegies could be implememted well and it was effective to teach reading for students with different level of motivation.
