Consequently, the research study sample was randomly chosen from second year LMD population of the English department at the University of 8 Mai 1945 –Guelma. In this respect, we hypothesize that if teachers use collaborative writing techniques, students will be able to write more proficiently. In order to check our hypotheses; the Descriptive Statistical Method has been relied on. As a result, teachers’ and students’ questionnaires have been administered. The former has been provided to a sample group (132) of second year LMD students; whereas, the latter has been given to eighteen (18) teachers from the English Department, at Guelma University. The aim of these questionnaires was to gather significant information about the role, effectiveness and importance of collaborative writing in EFL classrooms.
