The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of 5E learning cycle model oriented instruction (LCMI) on 11th-grade students' conceptual understanding of acids and bases concepts and student motivation to learn chemistry. The study, which lasted for 7 weeks, involved two groups: An experimental group (LCMI) and a control group (the traditional teacher-centered instruction [TTCI]). Based on multivariate analysis of covariance results, the LCMI students outperformed the TTCI students in terms of conceptual understanding about acids and bases. Similarly, the students from the experimental group scored higher motivation and this difference was found to be statistically significant. These findings demonstrated that instruction based on learning cycle model provide students a deeper conceptual understanding, foster high-order thinking, engage them in the learning process, and influence their motivation to learn by increasing the relevance of school chemistry to their daily lives.

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...
FACILITATING CONCEPTUAL CHANGE IN UNDERSTANDING STATE OF MATTER AND SOLUBILITY CONCEPTS BY USING 5E LEARNING CYCLE MODEL
Ceylan, Eren; Geban, Ömer (2009-01-01)
The main purpose of the study was to compare the effectiveness of 5E learning cycle model based instruction and traditionally designed chemistry instruction on 10th grade students' understanding of state of matter and solubility concepts. In this study, 119 tenth grade students from chemistry courses instructed by same teacher from an Anatolian High School in Ankara, Turkey took part. This study included two groups which were randomly assigned as experimental and control groups. During teaching the topic st...
Implementation of case-based instruction on electrochemistry at the 11th grade level
Kondakçı, Esen (2017-10-01)
This study aims to compare the effectiveness of case-based instruction over traditional instruction in improving 11th grade students' understanding of electrochemistry concepts, attitudes toward chemistry, chemistry self-efficacy beliefs, and motivation to learn chemistry. In total, 113 students (47 males and 66 females) from three high schools participated in this study. Two of the classes from each school were randomly assigned to be either the experimental or control group. The experimental group was ins...
The effect of 5E learning cycle model on eleventh grade students’ conceptual understanding of acids and bases concepts and motivation to learn chemistry
Çetin Dindar, Ayla; Geban, Ömer; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2012)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of 5E learning cycle model compared to traditional teacher-centered instruction on eleventh grade students’ conceptual understanding of acids and bases concepts and student motivation to learn chemistry. The measuring tools were Three-tier Acids-Bases Test (TABT) and Chemistry Motivation Questionnaire (CMQ). There were two groups, which were the experimental and traditional group, consisting of 78 students. Before the implementation, the tools were adm...
Structuring Cooperative Learning for Motivation and Conceptual Change in the Concepts of Mixtures
Can, Hatice Belge; Boz, Yezdan (2016-05-01)
This study investigates the effect of structuring cooperative learning based on conceptual change approach on grade 9 students' understanding the concepts of mixtures and their motivation, compared with traditional instruction. Among six classes of a high school, two of them were randomly assigned to cooperative learning group where students were instructed by Cooperative Learning based on Conceptual Change (CLCC), the other two classes were randomly assigned to traditional learning group where students wer...
