This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of Brain-Based Learning Model on the level of reading comprehension based on Exposition reading structure in Indonesian Junior High Schools. This experimental study used a one-group pretest-postest design. The data were collected using measurement or test techniques. The data analysis technique used the normality test, homogeneity test, and t-test. Based on the result of the t-test calculation; the difference between the average score in the pretest and posttest, the Brain-Based Learning Model was found effective in the reading comprehension learning in the seventh-grade students of SMPN Unggulan Sindang Indramayu. The effectiveness of this model covered all kinds of Exposition Reading structures; List Structure, Topic Structure, Matrix, Hierarchy, Sequence of Events, and Tree Structure.
