In learning a language, there are four skills that ought to be tutored to students: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Writing is a form of the written language that generally demands standard forms of grammar, generic structure, and vocabulary. It indicates that in writing, the writer should master the use of grammar, generic structure, and vocabulary to make the reader understand about what the writer writes. Students got the information that the generic structure of a narrative text consists of orientation, complication, and resolution. To the students, writing was very boring thus they considered that writing narrative text was a complicated, confusing and boring activity. The teacher also found it hard to teach writing skills. Some students also argued that they did not have enough vocabulary and limited knowledge on grammar. Consequently, the teachers who taught English writing in class need more effort and various techniques in teaching writing especially narrative text. Thus, the researchers offered a good media that had to be applied in the learning process of writing narrative text. The media is a cubing method. This article discusses implementation stages of the cubing method.
