The number of types of poetry can make students difficult to identify, especially if the material is delivered conventionally, then the results of learning will not leave a pleasant impression and satisfactory value. Though poetry is part of the material in the Indonesian language and literary education study program that must be understood and mastered so that students can later spread literature in the next generation. Besides that, students are often turned upside down and ironically, they do not consider that the distribution of poetry is important so that they do not really study it, even though each National Examination (UN) questions regarding the distribution of poetry are always an option to be issued by the drafting team on the National Examination ( UN). Through the word square learning model a learning class will emerge that is useful and packed with a pleasant atmosphere because this learning model has a work system that is similar to crossword puzzles. With the horizontal and decreasing method, it can make students learn while playing, so that it can affect the results of the learning process to identify types of poetry. Students catch material faster, remember faster, and material types of poetry can impress on their minds.
