Keywords Recount writing cooperative learning roundtable strategy This study was conducted to help eight graders of SMPN 21 Malang overcome their problems and improve their recount writing skill. A preliminary study was conducted in class eight-three of SMPN 21 Malang the researcher found out that most of the students could not make a good paragraph. One of the problems that caused this is that they could not generate the ideas well. To overcome these problems the researcher used a cooperative learning strategy called roundtable strategy to improve students recount writing skill. This strategy was also used to increase the students motivation in learning English. The researcher chose roundtable strategy because it is appropriate for the students to help them in finding and arranging the ideas. The members of each group were required to actively participate and work as a team. By implementing roundtable strategy the students learned how to write a recount paragraph well. This study was implemented by using Classroom Action Research in which the researcher took a role as an English teacher. The subjects of this study were 36 students from the eight-three class of SMPN 21 Malang. The study was conducted in one cycle consisting of four meetings. The data of the study were obtained from the students tests scores before and after implementing the roundtable strategy. In addition there were also the data from observation checklist field notes and the questionnaires to know the student s attitude toward roundtable strategy. By the end of the cycle in the fourth meeting the researcher found out that the criteria of success had been achieved. It was proven by the students score improvement and the questionnaires toward roundtable strategy. The students score in the final test was improved from the preliminary test. Ninety-seven percent of the VIII-3 class could pass the standard score. In addition the students responses toward roundtable strategy were positive. Most of the students liked to do roundtable strategy in learning English because it helped them to write recount texts more easily. To sum up the study showed that roundtable strategy could improve the students recount writing skill. However there are still some things to be improved later. For the English teacher it will be better if they have creative and innovative in developing teaching and learning process. For further researchers who want to conduct a similar study it is suggested that the researchers manage the class well and make the strategy well organized before implementing it.
