Starko (2010:187) states that webbing is often used to organize such idea and information on a topic. Semantic Webbing is graphic that  illustrates  how to associate  word  meaning  and  enables  students  to  make  connections  between what  they  know  about  words  and  how  they  are  related (Nlichols D. W and Rupjey. W .H. 2004: 64).
According  to  Miceli. P (2006: 1) Webbing is a basic brainstorming tool used by both individuals and groups. It lets a writer identify a central idea and think of associated words to get the creative juices flowing.
Based on Johanson. C. (2005:1) Educational webbing helps students organize their thoughts and make connections between prior knowledge and new learning. Webs, also known as mind maps or graphic organizers, paint a visual picture that enables learners to see how concepts fit together.
In addition, Cooper (2001: 128) states that webbing strategy should be used when students are just beginning to learn to construct meaning and can formulate their own purposes or pre-questions or when the text is extremely difficult. Usually the teacher should combine pre questions and purpose statement with other strategies, such as discussion or brain storming, to activate prior knowledge.
Semantic Webbing organizes information and relationships in a visual display.  It assists in reading comprehension and concept attainment and in the setting of purpose for reading through prediction.  It is also a helpful strategy for idea generation and organization in the writing process (Freedman. G. and Reynolds. E. 1980: 677).
