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 students were instructed by conceptual change oriented instruction through demonstrations (CCID). The results showed that CCID caused significantly better acquisition of the scientific conceptions related to chemical reactions and energy concepts than TDCI. Also, the results showed that there was a significant difference between post-test mean scores of students taught with CCID and those taught with TDCI with respect to their attitude toward chemistry as a school subject in favor of CCID.

Facilitating Conceptual Change in Rate of Reaction Concepts Using Conceptual Change Oriented Instruction
KAYA, EBRU; Geban, Ömer (2012-01-01)
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 analyz...
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...
Using the Science Writing Heuristic Approach to Enhance Student Understanding in Chemical Change and Mixture
Kingir, Sevgi; Geban, Ömer; GÜNEL, MURAT (2013-08-01)
This study investigated the effect of the Science Writing Heuristic (SWH) approach on grade 9 students' understanding of chemical change and mixture concepts. Four intact classes taught by two chemistry teachers from a Turkish public high school were selected for the study; one class was assigned as the treatment group, and the other class was assigned as the comparison group. Students in the treatment group were instructed by the SWH approach, while those in the comparison group were instructed with tradit...
The Collaboration of Cooperative Learning and Conceptual Change: Enhancing the Students' Understanding of Chemical Bonding Concepts
EYMUR, GÜLÜZAR; Geban, Ömer (2017-06-01)
The main purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of cooperative learning based on conceptual change approach instruction on ninth-grade students' understanding in chemical bonding concepts compared to traditional instruction. Seventy-two ninth-grade students from two intact chemistry classes taught by the same teacher in a public high school participated in the study. The classes were randomly assigned as the experimental and control group. The control group (N = 35) was taught by traditional i...
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...
