This strategy is aimed to help the students in formulating a step by step process for descriptive paragraph writing. The footsteps are developed in order to help the students in generating their ideas to compose the descriptive paragraphs. Anderson and Anderson (1998) explained that the purpose of descriptive paragraphs is to tell about the subject by describing its features without including personal opinions. Since descriptive paragraph is a kind of text that creates image in the reader's mind, students need to have some difficulties in getting started or lose their ideas during the writing process of the text. Therefore, the footsteps provide some ideas to be developed by the students as the guidance in formulating descriptive paragraphs. Additionally, students often rely on the repetitive descriptors instead of expanding the use of adverbs and adjectives. This strategy helps the students to avoid the repetition of the similar descriptors. Thus, this strategy provides patterns to be followed in writing descriptive paragraphs as well as to aid them in creating the better final result. Key words: Footsteps, Descriptive paragraph
