I think my writing class is boring. The same activity takes place from one meeting to another. I introduce new teaching material and explain it, the students listen - sometimes one or two of them ask questions, then I will give exercises and ask the students to practice writing. That’s all. That kind of activity seems quite uninteresting, monotonous, and mechanical. The class is silent, no cheerfulness, and no communicative activity. It changes when finally I apply a learning technique which actually is not new but I have just learnt currently- jigsaw. I found my writing class alive. Every student is active, they share and discuss ideas, they communicate each other and they enjoy the writing class. In this paper I would like to share my idea based on my experience in teaching writing using jigsaw. Key words: Jigsaw, active, better understanding, learning writing
