Examination of prospective science teachers’ achievement on basic geography topics and effectiveness of poster-based teaching for learning these topics
AbstractThe purposes of this study were to examine prospective teachers’ achievement levels in basic geography topics and the effectiveness of a poster–based teaching for learning these topics. For the first goal, the study used an ex post facto quantitative research design, and the achievement level was quite low. The reason for this might be defective teaching methods, and it was needed to study an effective teaching method. For the second goal, the study used a one–group pre–posttest quasi–experimental research design, and the treatment was quite effective.
