Abstract

The current study investigates the effects of the clustering prewriting technique on improving students’ paragraph writing. The chief objective is to know whether the implementation of clustering technique as pre-writing strategy is more effective than the old fashioned techniques. A quasi-experimental research design was used with 53 students who were randomly assigned to control and experimental groups .Data were gathered through three stages namely pre-treatment, treatment and post-treatment. The scores from the writing performance tests were compared and significant differences were determined using independent sample t-test. The findings evinced that post-test scores of the experimental group were higher than the pre-test scores in terms of coherence, creativity and vocabulary. This confirmed that there was a positive effect of using clustering technique on students’ writing achievement.
