Year 2016, Volume 0, Issue 9, 67 - 82, 25.01.2016

Abstract

In this study the purpose is to determine the effect of allosteric learning model on the problem solving skills of 7th grade students in English courses. Mixed method dealing with quantitative and qualitative research patterns was used. In the quantitative dimension, the paired pretest-posttest control group design from the quasi-experimental design and in qualitative dimension, case studies pattern were used. This study was conducted on a working group consisting of 70 students. In the quantitative dimension, problem-solving skills test developed by the researchers was used. Besides, with the semi-structured interviews, qualitative data was collected. To analyze the quantitative data t-test was used and to analyze the qualitative data, descriptive analysis and content analysis were used.  As a result of analysis of data obtained, there are significant differences in favor of the experimental group. In the light of the findings obtained from this research: There is not a significant differentiation between the scores of the experimental and control groups’ pre-test. There is not a significant differentiation between the points related to problem-solving skills of pretest and posttest of experimental group which is subjected to allosteric learning model. There is a significant difference in favor of posttest between the points related to problem-solving skills of pretest and posttest of experimental group which is subjected to allosteric learning model. There is a significant difference in favor of experimental group between the points related to problem-solving skills of posttest of experimental group which is subjected to allosteric learning model and the posttest of control group which is not subjected to it. When looked at the students’ opinions on the effectiveness of allosteric learning model: It is seen that allosteric learning model activities are learner-centered and other ones used before the model are teacher-centered. Students chose the activities according to the fact that they are “appropriate for their level” and they can “participate actively”. Also, students loved the activities which are “individual” or “group”. It is found that students faced some problems while “preparing and reaching the materials”. Finally, it is obtained that they tried to solve the problems they faced by “data collecting” or “identifying” them.

Abstract

Bu çalışmanın amacı, İngilizce dersinde allosterik öğrenme modelinin 7.sınıf öğrencilerinin problem çözme becerilerine etkisini belirlemektir. Nicel ve nitel araştırma desenlerinin birlikte ele alındığı karma yöntem kullanılmıştır. Araştırmanın, nicel boyutunda, yarı deneysel desenlerden, öntest-sontest eşleştirilmiş kontrol gruplu desen; araştırmanın nitel boyutunda ise, nitel araştırma desenlerinden durum çalışması deseni kullanılmıştır. Bu çalışma, 35’i deney 35’i kontrol grubu olmak üzere Siirt Sancaklar Ortaokulu’nda 2014-2015 eğitim-öğretim yılında öğrenim gören toplam 70 öğrenci ile yürütülmüştür. Nicel boyutunda, 1. 2. 3. ve 4. alt problemlere cevap aranırken araştırmacılar tarafından geliştirilen problem çözme becerileri testi kullanılmıştır. Bunun yanında, 5. alt probleme cevap aramak için yarı yapılandırılmış görüşme formu uygulanmıştır. Normal dağılımın görüldüğü gruplarda, nicel verileri analiz etmek için t-test ve nitel verilerin analizi için içerik analizi kullanılmıştır. t-testi ile elde edilen veriler sonucunda, deney grubu lehine anlamlı farklılık görülmüştür. Bu çalışmadan elde edilen bulgular ışığında: Deney ve kontrol grubu öğrencilerinin ön test problem çözme becerileri arasında anlamlı bir farklılığın olmadığı; Allosterik öğrenme modelinin uygulanmadığı kontrol grubu öğrencilerinin ön test ve son test problem çözme becerileri testinden aldıkları puanlar arasında anlamlı farklılığın olmadığı; Allosterik öğrenme uygulamasına tabi tutulan, deney grubunun ön test ve son test, problem çözme becerilerine ilişkin puanları arasında son test lehine anlamlı farklılık; Allosterik öğrenme uygulamasına tabi tutulan deney ve allosterik öğrenme uygulamasına tabi tutulmayan kontrol grubunun son test problem çözme becerilerine ilişkin puanlarının analizi sonucunda deney grubu lehine anlamlı farklılık bulunmuştur. Allosterik öğrenme modelin etkililiğine ilişkin öğrenci görüşlerine bakıldığında: Allosterik öğrenme modeli etkinliklerinin öğrenci merkezli; daha önce uygulanan etkinliklerin ise öğretmen merkezli olduğu görülmüştür. Öğrenciler ‘’düzeye uygunluk’’ ve ‘’etkin katılım’’ doğrultusunda etkinlikleri seçmişlerdir. Öğrenciler ‘bireysel ve grup’’ şeklinde yapılan etkinlikleri daha çok sevmişlerdir. Öğrenciler etkinliklerini yaparken, materyali hazırlamada ve materyale ulaşmada problemlerle karşılaşmışlardır. Öğrencilerin karşılaştıkları problemleri, bu problemler hakkında bilgiler toplayarak ve problemi tanımlayarak çözmeye çalıştıkları sonucuna ulaşılmıştır
