Abstract


This study aimed to determine the effect of strategy depending on habits of mind in changing the alternative concepts in Science and acquiring basic Science processes for basic stage students. The study was conducted over a sample of (60) eight grader students; divided into two groups, one as experimental and the other as a control one. The study used diagnostic exam of alternative concepts, and Science processes measurement, all of them were multiple choice. The study showed statistical variation in the percentage of alternative concepts between the experimental group and the control one in favor of the experimental group. Also there is statistical variation in Science processes between the experimental one and the control group in favor of the experimental group. The study recommends using the way depending on habits of mind in Science teaching as objective and planning form in order to change the alternative concepts in Science and acquiring basic Science processes for basic stage students.

Keywords
