The Effectiveness of a Proposed Teaching Model Based on the Situational Learning Theory and Psychological Theory in Deductive Thinking among Intermediate Grade Students
Main Article Content
The current research aims at (The effectiveness of a proposed teaching model based on the situational learning theory in deductive thinking among intermediate grade students), to achieve the aim of the research, the two researchers formulated the following hypothesis: ( There are no differences with statistically significant at the level (0,05) between the average of experimental group students who studied according to the proposed model and the control group students who studied according to the usual method in deductive thinking test .
The two-researchers relied on an experimental design with a partial controlling consisting of two groups, experimental and control. The research community consisted of intermediate and preparatory schools from directorate of education in Thi-Qar /Department of Qalaa Suker . The researcher selected AL-Naba'a AL-adheem intermediate school for boys. The research sample consisted of the two groups from the second intermediate stage named "A" and "B". Group A consists of( 37) students represented by an experimental group. Group B consists of (37) students represented by a control group. The two researchers conducted equivalence in a number of variables (Age calculated in months previous in formation test, intelligence). The researchers prepared the research requirements which required creating a proposed model according to the assumptions and the principles of situational learning theory. The researchers prepared the studying tool represented by a deductive thinking test consisting of(30) multiple – choice items , of deductive thinking skills (induction, deduction, inference). The two researchers used appropriate statistical means such as (t-test) for two independent sample and (Ita square) to know the effectiveness of the independent variable in deductive thinking. The results of research showed the superiority of experimental group students who studied according to proposed teaching model based on the situational learning theory over the control group students who studied according on traditional method in deductive thinking. The researchers came out with the number of conclusions, recommendations and suggestions.
