This classroom action research was intended to help the tenth grade students write recount text to gain their writing ability via blended learning in one of vocational high schools in Jember (SMK Negeri 5 Jember). Based on the preliminary study, it was found that the tenth TKJ 1 grade students had problems in conveying and developing their ideas in the form of written text. It happened because the teacher taught writing only by giving the students some topics to write, giving some examples about the paragraph and the genre of the text, and asking the students to write by applying the structure and some words about how to express their ideas based on the teacher explanation. However, that 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 difficulties in developing their ideas and the variety of vocabulary. It was proved by looking at the students percentage who achieved the standard score 75.
