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.
