Because of the importance of the English language, the government of Indonesia always aims to apply approaches that are anticipated to be appropriate for education levels and students’ ability, not only in attaining knowledge but also in relation to their personality and integrity in regard to using the knowledge gained in their future day-to-day life. A genre-based approach (GBA) is used to conduct classroom instruction and genre-based learning practices. One expert, Yan, argues that this approach has been popular since the 1980s, alongside the idea that students and writers could benefit from researching various types of written language. The GBA plays an important role in overcoming students’ difficulties in writing achievement. Because a descriptive quantitative method was adopted in this research, observation, document analysis (writing test), and interviews were conducted as data collection for the implementation of this GBA. After analysis of the data, the researchers came to the conclusion that this paper would be beneficial as a tutorial in helping students decide what ideas could be included in their writing, especially in classroom practice, to create meaningful texts. This GBA model can be used as a framework to enable teachers and students to develop their writing skills. It is hoped that this model can become a classroom strategy in allowing teachers and students to achieve a higher level of writing skill.
