This action research is aimed at finding out whether modelling technique can help students of year eight SMP Negeri 2 Blitar increase their achievement in writing narrative text, a text which is complex for the students. In finding out the data, the teaching and learning process is designed into two cycles. After all data are obtained, they are then arranged and analyzed. The data analysis yields that modelling technique is significantly increasing the learners’ achievement in writing narrative text. An instrument for collecting data uses questioner, lesson plan and student’s worksheet.

Based on the fact above it is proved that modelling technique effectively increases the student’s achievement in writing narrative text. Being proved above it is here suggested that modelling technique is to be used in teaching writing. Consequently, the teachers need to choose suitable approach or strategy in teaching competencies and motivate the students e.g. through selecting actual topics.
