Abstract: Prewiting activities like brainstorming and outlining are commonly conducted in academic writing class and teachers believe that such prewriting activities are beneficial and necessary to be conducted in the academic paper writing. Yet, students may have their own perceptions toward brainstorming and outlining, whether they are helpful and important or not. This study aims to investigate students' perceptions toward brainstorming and outlining in academic witing class. Fifteen English Department students who already took academic witing class paticipated in this study. Semi structured interview was used to get paticipants' opinions about doing brainstorming and outlining in academic writing class. Using desciptive witten explanation the data from the interview was analyzed. The result showed that most of the paticipants shared the perceptions that brainstorming and outlining were helpful and necessary to be conducted in the prewiting stage. However, it was also found that there were a small number of students who did not need prewiting activities because of their preferences and writing habits. This study suggests that brainstorming and outlining were necessary to be conducted because of their positive contributions toward students' academic papers.
