This study used quasi experimental research. The population of the research was the first-year students of English Language and Literature Department of Universitas Negeri Padang. These students were taught using two different strategies: collaborative writing strategy (CWS) and metacognitive writing strategy (MWS) or individual writing. The study revealed three findings. First, learning achievement of the students taught using CWS was higher than the students taught using MWS. Second, the writing ability of the students having field-Independent (FI) learning style was higher than the writing ability of the students with field-dependent (FD) learning style. Third, there was a significant interaction between the different writing strategies with the students’ learning style towards writing score. Thus, these findings signifies that it is better for the teachers to apply CWS in teaching and learning process of writing, to improve the students’ writing ability.
