Description This study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of sensory details in writing descriptive essay to grade twelve STEM students, University of Cebu-Main Campus. The result was used as basis for a proposed action plan. Specifically, the study sought answers to the pretest performances of the control and experimental groups, the posttest performances of the control and experimental groups, the significant difference between their pretest performances, the significant difference between their pretest-posttest performances, and the significant difference between their posttest performances. A quasi-experimental design was used with the control and experimental group. There were 60 grade twelve students as subject in the study. The experimental group was taught with the use of sensory details while the control was taught using the lecture method. Pretest and posttest evaluations were used to measure the academic performance of the students in both groups. Most of the students had good level performances. The posttest scores of both groups marked an increase and the posttest mean value of the experimental group was significantly higher compared to the control group. Writing for students is more fun and engaging when they are able to actually feel, see, smell, touch, or hear what they are writing about. Sensory detailed composition writing also explores the creative skills of learners. Learners would exercise realistic yet creative way of writing a descriptive essay.
