This study aims to explore the effect of conceptual change based instruction accompanied with demonstrations (CCBIAD) on 11th grade students’ attitudes toward chemistry. The sample consists of sixty-nine 11th grade students in two classes in a high school. In the experimental group, CCBIAD was used, whereas in the control group, traditionally designed chemistry instruction was used. The students’ attitudes were measured by Attitude Scale toward Chemistry. The results of ANOVA show that there was a significant mean difference between post-test scores of two groups in favor of the experimental group. As a conclusion, CCBIAD has a key role in forcing students’ attitudes toward chemistry.

ELMAS, RIDVAN; Geban, Ömer (2016-01-01)
The purpose of the present study was to compare the effectiveness of context based instruction over teacher centered chemistry instruction on 9th grade students' understanding of cleaning agents topic and their attitudes toward environment. Moreover students' science process skills were measured for using as a covariate. Participants were 222 ninth grade students from eight classes. Experimental group students were instructed with context based instruction and control group students were instructed with tea...
The Effect of Guided-Inquiry Instruction on 6th Grade Turkish Students' Achievement, Science Process Skills, and Attitudes Toward Science
Koksal, Ela Ayse; Berberoglu, Giray (2014-01-02)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of guided-inquiry approach in science classes over existing science and technology curriculum in developing content-based science achievement, science process skills, and attitude toward science of grade level 6 students in Turkey. Non-equivalent control group quasi-experimental design was used to investigate the treatment effect. There were 162 students in the experimental group and 142 students in the control group. Both the experimental and co...
The effect of cooperative learning approach based on conceptual change conditions on students understanding of chemical equilibrium
Bilgin, İbrahim; Geban, Ömer; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2002)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of the cooperative learning approach based on conceptual change conditions over traditional instruction on 10th grade students' conceptual understanding and achievement of computational problems related to chemical equilibrium concepts. In addition, the effects of students' performance in small group work on the students' conceptual understanding and achievement of computational problems related to chemical equilibrium was investigated. mThe subjects ...
The effect of conceptual change based instruction on students’ understanding of rate of reaction concepts
Kaya, Ebru; Geban, Ömer; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2011)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of conceptual change based instruction accompanied by demonstrations (CCBIAD) and gender on 11th grade students’ understanding and achievement in rate of reaction concepts, and their attitudes toward chemistry as a school subject compared to traditionally designed chemistry instruction (TDCI). Sixty nine 11th grade students from two classes in a public high school in Ankara participated in this study in the Fall Semester of 2008-2009. These classes we...
USING CONCEPTUAL CHANGE TEXTS WITH ANALOGIES FOR MISCONCEPTIONS IN ACIDS AND BASES
Cetingul, Ipek; Geban, Ömer (2011-01-01)
This study was conducted to explore the effectiveness of conceptual change oriented instruction over traditional instruction on students' understanding of acids and bases concept. Besides, effects of gender difference and science process skills on students' understanding of acids and bases were also investigated. Analysis of the results showed that establishing an analogical thinking during the instruction via conceptual change text caused better acquisition of scientific conceptions and elimination of misc...
