This classroom action research was intended to help the eleventh grade students write opinion text by using scaffolding technique through oreo graphic organizer in one of senior high school in Jember (SMA Negeri 1 Jember). Based on the preliminary study, it was found that the eleventh MIPA 3 grade students had problem in developing their ideas. It happened because the teacher taught writing only by giving the students some topics to write, giving some examples about the paragraph, and asking the students to write by applying the structure and some words about how to express their opinion based on the teacher explanation. However, this technique did not seem to be effective to be implemented. It made the students not enthusiastic in writing class. In addition, the students also found difficulty in developing their ideas and using the variety of vocabulary. It was proved by looking at the students percentage who achieved the standard score 84. The study was done in one cycle only which consisted two meetings. The implementation of the action in the first and second meeting covered two stages in teaching opinion text by using scaffolding technique through oreo graphic organizer, they were; (1) Pre-writing activities, first, providing oreo graphic organizers then asking the students to wrote their outline about the topic given.
