SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS’ CONCEPTUALISATION OF HUMAN BODY ORGAN SYSTEMS
LİSE ÖĞRENCİLERİNDE İNSAN VÜCUDU ORGAN SİSTEMLERİNİN KAVRAMSALLAŞTIRILMASI

Öykü Dulun [1]


Drawing method along with the written responses of 1st year International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) secondary school students wes used to determine their understanding of the concepts of human body organ systems. Due to the time limitation, misconceptions were not evaluated in this research. The focus of this research was mainly to determine the frequency of the drawn organ systems by the students to find out their knowledge prior to the upcoming chapter in IBDP Biology curriculum, Topic 6: Human Physiology, so that the curriculum implementation plan can be built considering the data collected in this small-scale research. Spontaneous drawings of students in support with open-ended questions were used in this current research to make qualitative analysis of the students’ ideas on human body systems and their functions. The mean age of the students was 18.1 (range 18-19) in this study which did not focus on the gender differences. The participants had studied at various middle schools before they started this high school. Therefore, there was great diversity due to the participants’ background however they were all being taught International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) Biology in grade 9 and 10 prior to IBDP. It was found that the only organ system among ten of those, which the students reached level 5 was urinary system. They still need further support on digestive, muscular and skeletal systems as well as the lymphatic system.  

Uluslararası Bakalorya Diploma Programı (IBDP) 1. yılına kayıtlı lise öğrencilerinin insan vücudundaki organ sistemleri kavramlarını ne ölçüde anladıklarını belirleyebilmek adına yazılı cevaplarıyla birlikte çizim yöntemi kullanılmıştır. Bu araştırmada zaman kısıtlaması nedeniyle kavram yanılgıları değerlendirilmemiştir. Bu küçük ölçekli araştırmanın odağı, öğrencilerin IBDP Biyoloji programı kapsamında yer alan İnsan Fizyolojisi ünitesi hakkındaki var olan ön bilgilerini öğrenebilmek adına çalışmada öğrenciler tarafından çizilen organ sistemlerinin sıklığını belirlemektir. Öğrencilerin insan vücudu sistemleri ve işlevleri hakkındaki bilgilerini nitel olarak analiz etmek için bu araştırmada açık uçlu soruları destekleyen öğrenciler tarafından yapılan organ sistem çizimleri kullanılmıştır. Cinsiyet farklılıkları üzerine odaklanmayan bu çalışmada yer alan öğrencilerin yaş ortalaması 18.1 (yaş aralığı 18-19) olarak belirlenmiştir. Katılımcıların lise öncesi çeşitli ortaokullarda okudukları bilinmektedir. Bu nedenle, katılımcıların geçmişine bağlı olarak büyük bir çeşitlilik vardır, ancak hepsi IBDP’ye başlamadan önce Uluslararası Genel Ortaöğretim Sertifika Programı kapsamında 9. ve 10. sınıfta Biyoloji dersi almıştır. Çoğu öğrencinin, kullanılan değerlendirme ölçeğine göre 5. seviyeye ulaştığı tek organ sisteminin üriner sistem olduğu tespit edilmiştir. Yine de IBDP’ye başlamadan önce sindirim sistemi, kas ve iskelet sistemi ve lenfatik sistem konularında daha fazla bilgi ve desteğe ihtiyaçları olduğu tespit edilmiştir.
