Abstract

The current research aims to identify the impact of a proposed strategy based on the Scout orientation on developing visual thinking skills among second-grade intermediate students. To achieve the goal of the research, the researcher randomly chose Saif Al Jabri’s intermediate school for boys, and in the same way he chose section (A) to represent the experimental group which consisted of (45) students and section (B) to represent the control group which also consisted of (45) students. The researcher conducted a parity between students of the two groups of research in a set of variables.


After determining the subject to be taught (during the period of the experiment) represented in the geography topics to be taught to students of the second intermediate grade, the researcher formulated (74) behavioral goals, prepared instructional plans for the subjects of the subject that will be taught in the experiment, and presented examples of them to a committee of experts And specialists in the field of methods, psychology, measurement and evaluation to find out its validity and suitability for the research variables, and the researcher also prepared a questionnaire for visual thinking and made sure of its validity and reliability by himself after presenting it to experts and specialists in the field of teaching methods, psychology, measurement and evaluation.


The researcher studied the two research groups himself during the experimental period that lasted for (10) weeks, and after the completion of the experiment, he applied the post-achievement test to the students of the two groups, and we used statistical methods, namely: the T-test for two independent samples, the chi square, the Pearson correlation coefficient, and the Spearman Brown equation. And the power discrimination equation, the difficulty coefficient equation, and the equation for the effectiveness of the wrong alternative, and after analyzing the results statistically, he reached a conclusion that the proposed strategy based on the Scout trend was effective in developing visual thinking skills among students of the second intermediate grade by outperforming the experimental group students over the control group students in the test.
