This action research adapted Kemmis and McTaggart’s theory. The step involved: (1) planning (identifying of a problem); (2) acting (collecting data); (3) observing (analyzing and interpreting data); and (4) reflecting (developing an action). The researcher conducted the research in two cycles. In collecting data, it gathered between qualitative data and quantitative data.

Based on this study finding, it can be concluded that the students’ writing competence improved as follows: (1) for answering the students’ improvement of writing skill, we pointed the mean score of pre-test, post-test in Cycle I, and posttest in Cycle II. The mean score of pre-test was 61, second post-test was 75,15, and last post-test was 89,25. These scores were concluded that there was improvement in each cycle; (2) for answering the students’ interest, we pointed the questionnaire result of the students’ motivation after the implementation. The data showed that 68,125% of the students agreed that they like English, while 31,875% of the students disagree if they like English. The result of this study was improved because the implementation was guided by picture series as the media.
