Study Aim: This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of using RAFTs strategy in improving English writing skills among female tenth graders in Gaza. Study Approach: To achieve this aim, the researcher adopted the experimental approach and selected a sample of (68) female tenth graders studying at Hassan Salama Elementary School for Girls (A) in the Gaza Strip. Study Sample: The researcher chose two classes from the four tenth grade classes in the school and randomly assigned one class as an experimental group consisting of (34) female students and the other as an a control group consisting of (34) female students. The traditional method was used in teaching writing to the control group, while the RAFTs Strategy was used with the experimental one in the second term of the school year (2016-2017). Study Tools: As a main tool for the study, the researcher used an achievement test of six questions designed and validated to be used as a pre- and posttest. Used as a pre-test, the achievement test was meant to prove the groups' equivalence. Besides, it was used as a posttest to measure any possible differences between the two groups. In addition, the researcher used a content analysis card and a rubric to score students' writing. Most important study findings: The findings of the study revealed that there were significant statistically differences in learning English writing between the experimental and the control groups in favor of the experimental group, and this was attributed to using RAFTs Strategy. Study most important recommendations: Based upon the previous findings, the study recommended the necessity of implementing RAFTs Strategy in teaching and learning English writing to bring about better outcomes in students' achievement. Also, the researcher suggested that further research should be conducted concerning the effectiveness of using RAFTs strategy in teaching different English language skills and other school subjects as well.
