This classroom action research was intended to improve the VII B students’ descriptive paragraph writing achievement by using composite pictures at SMP Negeri 4 Tanggul. This research began by conducting a preliminary study by interviewing the English teacher of the seventh grade students of SMP Negeri 4 Tanggul. It was found that the VII B students of SMP Negeri 4 Tanggul experienced difficulties in writing especially writing descriptive paragraph. The English teacher said that the students who reached the minimum score requirement that is 70 were only 9 students or 26.5 % of total students in the class. It was because they lacked vocabulary, unable to use mechanical and grammatical structures correctly, difficulties to start to write, developed and organized their ideas. Moreover the students also had low motivation to participate in learning writing because of those difficulties. To solve the problem above, the researcher used composite pictures as teaching media in teaching writing of descriptive paragraph. The researcher used composite pictures because it was an interesting media to improve the students’ descriptive paragraph writing achievement as well as their participation during the teaching learning process.
