Abstract: This study is meant to discover the stages, strategies, techniques and skills ESL teachers apply when using the writing process approach with PYP students in Saudi Arabia to develop their writing abilities, and what stages, techniques and strategies do ESL students use when writing in L2 while following the writing process approach. The tools used in this study were classroom observations and students writing samples. The data analysis revealed that teachers apply certain strategies and techniques while implementing the writing process approach. ESL students employ different strategies and techniques while using the writing process approach, such as collaborative writing activities, and social interaction. The students' writing samples scores revealed an improvement in students writing abilities by using a writing rubric. The study provided enough data to understand the importance of teachers using effective techniques and the influence of the writing process approach on Saudi female students.
