Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of using pictures in teaching English writing among mathayom four students in Narathiwat, Thailand.  The participants were 40 mathayom four students from a private high school in Narathiwat. This study was based on schema theory (Piaget, 1952). The theory claims that background knowledge helps in the processing and organizing of new information for future understanding. The instruments used in this study were 36 items of pre-test and post-test. The students completed a writing task which was giving as a pre-test. It consisted of only guide words to help them complete the task. In the post-test, they were given the writing task which consisted of the same guide words from the pre-test but the addition of pictures to help them complete the task.  The researcher used a paired-sample t-test to analyze data.  The findings indicated that using pictures in teaching English writing can improve students’ ability in writing skills. This study has crucial perceptions to Ministry of Education, Teacher Training Division and English supervisors as well as English teachers to take consideration on teaching methodologies because serious planning and implementations were required to improve the high school students’ English ability in this province.
