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.

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 ...
EFFECTS OF HANDS-ON ACTIVITY ENRICHED INSTRUCTION ON STUDENTS' ACHIEVEMENT AND ATTITUDES TOWARDS SCIENCE
SADİ, ÖZLEM; Çakıroğlu, Jale (2011-01-01)
This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of hands-on activity enriched instruction on sixth grade students' achievement and attitudes toward science. In this study, Science Achievement Test and Science Attitude Scale were used to assess students' achievement on sense organs and students' attitudes toward science respectively. Two teachers with four classes and total of 140 sixth grade students were participated in this study. One class of each teacher was assigned as experimental group and treated ...
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...
The effect of webquest based instruction on ninth grade students’ achievement in and attitude towards force and motion
Gökalp, Muhammed Sait; Eryılmaz, Ali; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2011)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of WebQuest based instruction on ninth grade students’ achievement in and attitude towards force and motion subject. Force and Motion Achievement Test, Attitude towards “Force and Motion” Scale, Attitude towards the Internet Scale, Observation Checklist, and Out-Class Activities Survey were used as measuring tools. Teacher handouts and WebQuests were prepared as teaching/learning materials for this study. The study was conducted with 226 ninth grade st...
