Abstract : Sentence-based Writing (SBW) course introduces the students to the skill of writing in which students are taught to make grammatical sentences in the level of clause structure. However, the syllabus and the materials for this course are considered ineffective. This present study employed Research & Development (R & D) cycles for developing syllabus and instructional materials. The theories adopted for syllabus and materials were Richard’s (2001) and Tomlinson & Masuhara’s (2004), respectively. The steps were mapping materials, developing criteria and framework for evaluation and development, selecting and adapting available materials, developing necessary original materials, and designing activities. Needs analysis was conducted prior to designing syllabus by using the following instruments: documentation, questionnaire, interview, and library research. The validation and try-out displayed positive results that the products of development were appropriate to be used in classroom activities of SBW course.
