The problem statement was: What is the students’ ability before and after the demonstration treatment? And does the demonstration method improve student’s ability in writing procedure text? The method that this research used was a pre-experimental design, where it uses a one-group pre-test and post-test design. The sampling method used a simple random sampling technique, where the result of the random sampling is 2 classes of any department that are available in Vocational High School 1 Makassar are being taken randomly. A class from the Accountant department and a class from Travel and Tourism Business department are taken as the result of the random sampling. The students’ ability in writing procedure text will be tested through pre-test and post-test.
