This study aims at developing appropriate supplementary reading materials containing intercultural values for the tenth-grade students in Yogyakarta. This study is research and development (R & D). It employed ADDIE Model as proposed by Branch (2009). It involved 56 students from two social classes of a senior high school in Yogyakarta. The data collection instruments were questionnaires, interview guides, and self-assessment of intercultural competence. The collected data were analyzed quantitatively and qualitatively. Based on the results of the need analysis, the students expected reading skills improvement in terms of understanding the content and meaning of the text and improving vocabulary mastery. The learning need results indicated that students needed reading materials equipped with intercultural values. The intercultural values covered Yogyakarta, national, and universal values. The researcher made some selections of the values inherent in the cultural content to be inserted in the materials. The supplementary English reading materials entitle ‘Reading: A Window to the World’ consisted of six units with around 20 tasks of each. Each unit covered a unit title, let’s start, let’s read, let’s review, let’s learn more, reflection, summary, values that can be learned from the unit, and glossary. The appropriateness of the developed materials was assessed in terms of content, procedure, intercultural values insertion, language, presentation, and graphics. In regard to the theoretical validation, the appropriateness of the designed materials was categorized ‘very good’ based on the expert judgment as the mean values reached 3.27 in the interval of 3.25 ≤ X ≤ 4.00. Then, in terms of empirical validation, the appropriateness was categorized ‘very good’ based on the students’ agreement with the mean values of 3.46 in the interval of 3.25 ≤ X ≤ 4.00. In addition, based on the assessment of intercultural competence, the students showed positive responses in terms of knowledge, attitude, skills, and awareness.
