|Title||The Effectiveness of Using a Program Based on Active Learning Strategies on Fourth Graders’ English Performance in Gaza UNRWA Schools|
This study aimed at investigating the effectiveness of a suggested program based on active learning strategies on fourth graders’ performance in English. For answering the questions of the study, the researcher adopted the experimental approach. The sample of the study consisted of (70) female students from Nuseirat elem. Co-ed " B" distributed into two groups. One of the groups represented the control group of (35) students; and the other represented the experimental one of (35) students. The active learning program was used in teaching the experimental group, while the traditional method was used with the control one in the first term of the school year (2012- 2013). A performance test of four scopes with (40) items was designed and validated to be used as a pre and post test. The data of the study were analyzed, using T-test and Mann Whitney. An effect size technique was used to measure the effect size of the active learning program on the experimental group in each scope of the test. The study indicated that there were statistically significant differences in the fourth graders' performance in English language in the four skills: : listening, reading, writing, and speaking due to the method in favor of active learning program. Furthermore, there were statistically significant differences in the fourth graders' performance in English language in the four skills: : listening, reading, writing, and speaking between the high and low achievers in the experimental group from one side and their counterparts in the control one due to the method in favor of active learning program. Based on those findings, the study recommended the necessity of implementing active learning strategies in teaching English language to bring about better outcomes in the students' performance in English language. It was suggested also that further research should be conducted on the effect of other active learning strategies on other dimensions of learning English language, other school subjects and different grades.
