The result showed that the students in the experimental group had a high participation in learning writing through mind mapping technique. The calculation of students’ writing posttest exposed a significant difference between experimental and control group where the students in the experimental group got much higher mean score than in control group. Moreover, independent sample t-test result by using SPSS 23 shows a significant increase in the experimental group over the control group. Besides, the result of the questionnaire indicates that students are highly interested in learning writing through mind mapping technique. It can be concluded that the use of mind mapping technique in learning writing is effective to increase students’ engagement and interest. Moreover, further analysis shows that students’ behavioral engagement is higher than students’ cognitive engagement and students’ expressed interest increases higher than other types of interest due to the technique used which was mind mapping technique.
