This research is a type of experimental research that aims to describe the influence of applying the write around type of cooperative learning model in learning to write short stories in class XI students of SMA 1 Polewali. The population of this study was the XI grade students of Polewali 1 High School and the sample of this study was taken by random sampling consisting of two classes. One class was made a control class, namely students of class XI IBB 2 who were taught not to use the cooperative learning model type write around and one class as the experimental class, namely students of class XI IBB 1 who were taught using the write around type cooperative learning model. The results of the research data were analyzed using the SPSS 21 for windows program. The results of the descriptive analysis provided information that the ability of the control group students in the initial test produced an average score of 60.00 in the less category, and in the final test 63.10 was still in the category less, the standard deviation in the final test was 8.243 while the experimental group students using the write around cooperative learning model on the initial test had an average score of 63.85 in the less category, and the final test produced an average score of 75.91 of which were in the capable category with a standard deviation in the final test 7.145. Inferential statistical analysis obtained a value of t count = 6.607 > t table = 2.00, then the t count falls in the rejection area H0 . This means that hypothetical H 1 is accepted. Then the conclusion is that the application of the write around type cooperative learning model influences the ability to write short stories of class XI students in IBB 1, Polewali 1 High School.
