Therefore, in the writing teaching and learning process needed a good technique and media that researcher interested namely guided questions identification technique by using video clips. Then, the objective of the research is to find out whether or not guided questions identification technique by using video clips able to enhance the writing ability at the tenth year students of SMA Negeri 7 Pinrang. In this research the researcher applied quasi-experimental design, that consisted of experimental class and control class. The population was the tenth year students of SMA Negeri 7 Pinrang. The samples were drawn by using cluster random sampling technique that consisted of 57 students which
were class X. 2 as an experimental class and class X. 1 as control class. The data were acquired by using writing test. The writing test was applied in pre-test and post-test.

It means that the t-test value 2.648 is higher than t-table value 2.004. It indicates that H 1 was accepted and H 0 was rejected and the students who were taught through guided questions identification technique by using video clips are
better than the students who were taught through clustering technique by using video clips.
