    Abstract

    Language is a means of social communication which facilitates humans to interact with others. One of the social functions of a language is to express and pass on one’s cultural ideas and attitudes. In English language learning, the four language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) support each other. Writing as one the English skills is taught at the level of secondary school in Indonesia. The teaching of writing should focus more on application or process that serves the students’ need of writing skill on their educational and working world. Students could not explore and focus their mind and ideas in their writing assignments due to several reasons, such as lack of vocabularies and difficulties in structuring sentences. This led to their reluctance to do the writing assignments given by their English teacher which can form their negative attitude toward writing. Attitude plays an important part in foreign language learning. This paper presents the role of scaffolded writing technique to improve students’ attitude toward exposition writing and writing achievement. Keywords: Scaffolded writing, attitude, writing, hortatory exposition
