فاعلية استخدام استراتيجية تدريس قائمة على نموذج أوزوبل في تحصيل طالبات الصف التاسع الأساسي بمادة الأحياء واتجاهاتهن نحوها
The study aimed to reveal the effect of the use of a teaching strategy given to the model of Ausubel in the Achievement of the Ninth Grade female students in biology and their attitudes towards it. The study sample consisted of (44) female students, assigned randomly into two group: the experimental group consisted of (21) students taught using teaching strategy given to the model of Ausubel (concept mapping), and control group consisting of (23) students taught using conventional teaching. The study tools consist of two instruments were developed, the achievement test and the trend scale towards biology, and after verifying the validity and reliability have been applied to study tools triabl group and then teaching the experimental group using the model of Ausubel (concept mapping) and the control group in the usual way. The results of study showed that there were statistically significant differences between the two groups on the achievement in favor of the experimental groups, in addition to the impact of teaching using the strategy of concept maps in developing the students' direction towards biology. In light of the study findings, some recommendations were offered.
