The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of explicit-embedded-reflective (EER) instruction in scientific literacy levels of the ninth grade advanced science students by assessing content knowledge and scientific literacy levels. The study was conducted with 51 students by using experimental design. In the treatment group, the EER teaching was performed, while in the comparison group the instruction was conducted by lecturing, demonstration and questioning strategies in a teacher-centred context. Nature of Science Literacy Test and Cell Content Knowledge Test were used for data collection. T-tests were utilized for data analysis. The results of the study showed that the EER teaching was effective in terms of increase in scientific literacy levels and cell content knowledge in the treatment group. In addition, the approach was more effective in increasing scientific literacy levels and cell content knowledge than the regular approach.

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of history of science instruction on elementary students' scientific literacy. Specifically, the effectiveness of history of science instruction over curriculum-oriented instruction was examined in terms of four central components of scientific literacy, which are science process skills, understanding of human circulatory system concepts, attitudes toward science, and nature of science views. A total of 95 sixth-grade students from four classes p...
The effect of explicit embedded reflective instruction on nature of science understandings, scientific literacy levels and achievement on cell unit
Köksal, Mustafa Serdar; Geban, Ömer; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2010)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of explicit-embedded-reflective (EER) instruction on nature of science (NOS) understandings, scientific literacy levels and cell content knowledge of the ninth grade advanced science students. This study has been conducted with 71 students by using non-equivalent quasi-experimental design. In the treatment groups, the EER teaching has been conducted while NOS instruction in the comparison group for the same time interval has been done by lecture,...

The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of multiple intelligences based instruction on sixth grade students? science achievement, and attitudes towards science. This experimental research was conducted in the 2nd term of 2002 ? 2003 educational year with sixth graders in METU Ankara College Primary School, and lasted for three weeks. A randomly chosen class was assigned to the experimental group and instructed by Multiple Intelligences Science Instruction, and the other randomly chosen class...
The Effect of multiple intelligences based instruction on students's achievement in basic compounds of living organisms concepts and attitude toward biology
Şakir, Tuncay; Geban, Ömer; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2013)
The main purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of multiple intelligences based instruction (MIBI) over traditionally designed instruction on ninth grade students’ achievement in the unit of basic compounds of living organisms concepts and attitude toward biology as a school subject. In addition, the effect of gender difference on achievement in the unit and attitudes toward biology were investigated. Students’ science process skills were also investigated. 59 ninth grade students from two d...
An investigation of pre-service elementary science teachers’ scientific literacy level and their attitudes towards science
Ulutaş, Özgül; Ertepınar, Hamide; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2009)
This study aims to investigate pre-service elementary science teacher’s scientific literacy level and their attitudes towards science. In addition, whether pre-service elementary science teacher’s scientific literacy and their attitudes towards science differs in some demographic variables such as gender, high school profile, grade, place of family residence, parents educational level and family income level were examined. Finally, possible relationship between participants’ scientific literacy level and th...
