Descriptive text is a type of text in learning English. It is a type of text that describes what someone or something is like. The descriptive text refers to the five senses and therefore describes how something is seen, felt, smelled, tasted, and heard. Many students think that writing a text is as difficult as writing an essay. This research was found in seventh-grade students of SMP Negeri 2 Metro because students still had difficulty describing something. In addition, students are less enthusiastic about the learning process. Students are also not active during the teaching and learning process.

The problems discussed by the researcher in this study are related to the student's skill to write descriptive texts. The purpose of this study was to apply picture media to improve the skill to write descriptive texts for seventh-grade students of SMP Negeri 2 Metro for the 2022/2023 academic year, which was attended by 31 students. In this study, the researcher used Classroom Action Research (CAR) as a research methodology consisting of planning, action, observation, and reflection. Test, observation, documentation, and field notes were used as data collection method.
The steps of the research process are as follows. First of all, the researcher conducted a pre-test with the students to find out how far the students could write a descriptive text. The researcher then offers students one activity or treatment in each cycle as a follow-up to the pre-test results that have been completed. In addition, changes in each student's grade are known through the post-test results completed in each period. This test consists of 1 question in the form of an essay. In this case, the researcher accepted the research results based on the research conducted with an average pre-test score of 50,80 (16%), post-test 1 was 62,80 (20%) and post-test 2 was 74,38 (90%) of students passed the Minimum Criteria (MSC) of at least 70 and picture media can improve students' descriptive writing skills. This means that this research was successful.
