This study was aimed at finding out whether after being prompted with sequenced pictures, the students achieve better performance in writing narration or not. This study was based on the fact that the students’ writing was not comprehensible and the students had low motivation and were not interested in doing the tasks. The sequenced pictures, which consisted four pictures arranged chronologically forming a story, were expected to have a significant effect on the students’ performance in writing a paragraph narration. An experimental study was conducted to answer whether there was a significant difference between the first year students’ writing narrative ability before and after the sequenced pictures were prompted them. The subject of this study were the first year students at SMAN 2 Batu academic year 2006/2007. At the beginning of the course the subjects were given a pretest. They were asked to write a paragraph narration. After the treatments, which covered six meetings, had been conducted, a posttest that was similar but not the same test as that in the pretest was given to the students. The results showed that the mean score of the posttest (72) was significantly higher than that of the pretest (59). It means that the students achieve better performance in writing narration after being prompted with sequenced pictures than before. In conclusion, it was proved that the using sequenced pictures had a significant effect on the students’ performance in writing narration. Finally, the researcher suggested that sequenced pictures should be used to accompany the real writing material.
