ABSTRACT

In this present study, it was aimed to investigate the effect of teaching practices with real life content in light and sound learning areas. With this purpose, it was intended to determine the contribution of teaching practices with real life content (TPRLC) to the levels of pre-service teachers' skills to associate the light and sound learning areas with daily life. The research was designed with an experimental basis and data were collected with the pre-test, post-test pattern. The participants consisted of 30 university students who were in fourth grade in Secondary School Science Teacher Training Department. Data were collected with questionnaires including open-ended questions related to the Use of Learning Areas in Daily Life. With the results, it was found out that the levels of pre-service teachers in associating the learning areas with daily life doubled in light learning areas and trebled in sound learning areas.
