This study involved 46 students. They were divided into two groups: class VIIIA (23 students) as the control group, and class VIIIC (23 students) as the experimental group. The data were obtained by means of essay writing tests. They were administered to the two groups as the pretest and the posttest. The pretest was given to both groups before the treatment and the posttest was given at the end of the treatment. The data were analyzed by means of descriptive and inferential statistics. The hypothesis was tested using the ttest. The results show that there is a significant difference in the writing ability between the students who were taught by using mind mapping as technique and those were not. First, before the treatment the mean of writing ability of students who were taught using mind mapping was 37.87 and the standard deviation was 7.812. After the treatment, the mean increased 5.04 become 42.91 and the standard deviation was 4.284. Briefly, before the treatment 12 students were categorized as extremely very poor category group. After the treatment, only 2 students were categorized as extremely poor category (8.7%). Second, the writing ability of the class who were taught using a conventional technique, the mean was 37.09 and the standard deviation was 6.882. Then, the researcher conducted a post test and the mean increased 2.04 point to 39.13 and the standard deviation was 5.554. In pre test there were 13 students who were categorized as extremely poor category group. In the post test, only 9 students were categorized as extremely poor category (39.1%). Third, the hypothesis was tested using the ttest. In this case, the value of tobserved was 2.586 with the degree of freedom (df) 44. The value of probability (p) was of 0.013, which is lower than the level of significance 5% (0.05). It means that the null hypothesis is rejected and the alternative hypothesis is accepted.
