SYNECTIC COMPARISON STRATEGY IN READING
Definiton of Synectic Comparison Strategy
According to Preszler. J. Et.al (2006: 21) Synectics is a strategy for comparing content to an unrelated object. It causes students to think about vocabulary words in creative ways. In a synectic comparison, the brain has to compare two things that aren’t usually compared. In addition, the strategy requires the brain to create pictures as it searches for comparisons. As a result, students are more likely to retain the information.
SYNECTIC COMPARISON STRATEGY IN READINGBased on Schaffer (1986: 46) Synectics is a system which introduces strategies for teaching writing, creativity, and thinking. This approach uses metaphors and analogies to guide students through new ways of viewing their world. With synectics, students possess the tools to look at themselves and their surroundings in creative and imaginative ways.
Vygotsky classify Synectics as a mental tool – an intentional strategy for enhancing the effectiveness of higher mental functions.  Mental tools, he claimed, play a key role in cognitive development by functionally changing the way learners perceive, process and store information
Seligmann (2007: 13) Synectics is especially valuable in classrooms of diverse thinkers because it accommodates the vast array of learning styles in each system While students can benefit from using Synectics on their own, some of its educational value is lost when removed from the social environment. Working with other students who perceive situations differently helps students adapt to and understand alternative perspectives
