The Effect of a Conceptual Change Teaching Strategy (Model) on Students Attitude towards the Learning of Some Biology Concepts.
Ogunsola-Bandele, Mercy F.; Oyedokun, Comfort A.
This study examined the effectiveness of a conceptual change teaching strategy over the traditional method on high school students' (N=152) attitudes towards learning biology. The study employed a two-group experimental control design. The experimental group was taught using a conceptual change teaching strategy. A 21-item instrument that is validated and based on a three-point scale was administered to the students. Analysis of the students' post-instructional attitude towards the strategy suggests that there is a significant difference in the attitude of students in the two classes after the treatment. The U-test value of the groups was significant and led to the rejection of the only hypothesis. Contains 24 references. (Author/DDR)
