ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of Teaching Strategy based on Multiple Intelligences on students’ academic achievement in sciences course. Totally 40 students from two different classes (Experimental N=20 and Control N= 20) participated in the study. They were in the fifth grade of elementary school and were selected through multi-stage clustered sampling. The group which was assigned as experimental group was instructed through Teaching Strategy based on Multiple Intelligences whereas the other group was traditionally instructed. This experimental study lasted 8 weeks. To determine the effectiveness of Teaching Strategy based on Multiple Intelligences over common teaching method (traditional instruction), an achievement test about sciences which consisted of 30 items was administered. For the statistical analysis, Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used. The results showed that students who were instructed through Teaching Strategy based on Multiple Intelligences were achieved higher score than the ones which were instructed through the traditional instruction.
