The participants were 42 (22 for the experimental group and 20 for the control group) second semester students majoring in English Education Department at Universitas Muhammadiyah Parepare. A quasi-experimental method with two pretest-posttest group design was applied to gain the data. In the process of using the video, there were some types of video used such as documentary, educational video, tutorial video, news, and entertainment video. Those were assumed as videos that show the authentic English language culture in the EFL classroom. The results of the study show that the descriptive statistics of the groups reveals that the mean score in the posttest of the experimental group (81.45) is greater than the control group (74.67), the standard deviation in the experimental group (7.715) were more identic than in control group (10.721). In addition, the result of the independent sample test where the significance level (p=.026) is smaller than the standard alpha level (p=.05). The result shows a statistically significant difference between the students’ writing score of the control and experimental groups. In other words, the students in the experimental group were better than those in the control group. Therefore, it can be concluded that the use of authentic video was effective in improving the students’ writing skill.

It was implemented to the third semester students of English department of Universitas Muhammadiyah Parepare in academic year 2016/2017. At first, the researcher implemented POEW model to treat the students in teaching writing. After that, they were tested to find out their ability after being treated through POEW model. Data were analyzed quantitatively using 21.0 version of SPSS program.The result indicated that the students who were treated through POEW model have significant improvement in their writing ability than the students who were not. It is found that the significant value (0.000) was lower than the probability value (0.05). This means that there was a significant difference between the students? writing ability before and after being taught through POEW model where the students? writing ability improved significantly in posttest (after being taught through POEW model). The mean score of posttest of the students in experimental class (72.40) was higher than the students in control class (62.46) which indicated that the students ability in the experimental class was better than the students in control class. The students ability in experimental class was improved from 61.24 to 72.40 while in control class only from 61.36 to 62.46. Besides that, the standar deviation in experimental class (7.832) was also lower than in control class (8.364) which indicated that the students ability in experimental class was slightly similar to control class
