The aim of this study is to determine the effect of the group research technique and cooperative reading-writing application technique in the science and technology course in the unit of "what is the Earth's crust made of" on the academic achievement of the students and whether the change observed in the student achievement is permanent or not. The study group is formed of total 62 students in two classes studying in the 6th grade of a primary school in 2010-2011 education year. One of the classes is determined to be Group Research Group (GRG) where group research technique is used and the other one is Reading-Writing-Application Group (RWAG) where cooperative reading-writing-application technique is used. The main instruments for obtaining data were the Academic Achievement Test (AAT). The data obtained on instruments were evaluated by using descriptive statistic, independent sample t test, paired sample t test and effect sizes. As a result, it was determined that the academic achievements of the students who were taught with cooperative reading-writing-application technique were at a higher level than the academic achievements of the students who were taught with group research. In addition teaching with group technique did not have a permanent effect on the student achievement.
