This article discusses schema theory and the effect of utilizing the schematic model in the teaching of short stories (literature components) in the Malay Language. Proponents of schema theory have stressed the role of schema or prior knowledge in assisting and enhancing students’ reading comprehension. A quasi experimental study was carried out to identify the effect of using a schematic model on the achievement of students in comprehending short stories and their interest towards reading short stories. The findings indicate that the use of the schematic model significantly enhanced students’ achievement in answering questions related to issues, characterization, social settings and language styles compared with the traditional approach. Interest towards reading short stories was also significantly enhanced.
