The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of conceptual change-oriented instruction through demonstrations (CCOITD) on 11th grade students' understanding of rate of reaction concepts when compared to traditionally designed chemistry instruction (TDCI). The sample consisted of 69 11th grade students from two classes in a public high school. Reaction Rate Concept Test was administered to both groups as a pretest and posttest to assess students' understanding of the concepts. The data was analyzed by using one-way ANOVA. The results show that the experimental group in which CCOITD used had a significantly better acquisition of scientific conceptions related to rate of reaction than the control group.

Promoting Conceptual Change in Chemical Reactions and Energy Concepts through the Conceptual Change Oriented Instruction
Ceylan, Eren; Geban, Ömer (2010-07-01)
This study was designed to investigate the effectiveness of the conceptual change oriented instruction through demonstration over traditionally designed chemistry instruction on 10th grade students' understanding of chemical reactions and energy concepts and their attitudes towards chemistry as a school subject. One of the groups was defined as control group in which students were taught by traditionally designed chemistry instruction (TDCI), while the other group defined as experimental group in which stud...
EFFECT OF CONCEPTUAL CHANGE APPROACH ON STUDENTS' UNDERSTANDING OF REACTION RATE CONCEPTS
Kingir, Sevgi; Geban, Ömer (2012-01-01)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of conceptual change text oriented instruction compared to traditional instruction on 10th grade students' understanding of reaction rate concepts. 45 students from two classes of the same teacher in a public high school participated in this study. Students in the experimental group were instructed by conceptual change text oriented instruction while students in the control group were instructed by traditional instruction. The results indicated ...
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...
EFFECTIVENESS OF CONCEPTUAL CHANGE INSTRUCTION ON FLUID FORCE TOPIC
Ipekcioglu, S.; Elmas, R.; Geban, Ömer; Yesilyurt, H. (2011-03-09)
The main purpose of the study was to investigate the effectiveness of conceptual change oriented instruction over traditionally designed science instruction on 8th grade students' understanding of fluid force concepts. Participants of the study were fifty five 8th grade students from two classes in a private elementary school. This study is a quasi experimental pretest-posttest control group design. Both groups were administered Fluid Force Concept Achievement Test as pre and post test. Also Logical Thinkin...
Facilitating conceptual change in learning rate of reaction concepts
Bozkoyun, Yasin; Geban, Ömer; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2004)
The main aim of this study to investigate the effectiveness of conceptual change texts oriented instruction accompanied with analogies over traditionally designed chemistry instruction on overcoming 10th grade students̕ misconceptions, their understanding of rate of reaction concepts and attitude towards chemistry as a school subject. 56 tenth grade students from two classes of a chemistry course taught by the same teacher in the ATATÜRK Anatolian High school, participated in the study. This study was carri...
