Abstract

The purpose of this study was to analyze effectiveness of mind mapping and lecture based teaching methods in improving achievement in Biology essay writing, among form four students who were taking pure science subjects including Biology. The study focused on mind mapping skills in improving achievement of essay writing in Biology. This was a pre and post test plus survey based research. A stratified sampling was used in this study. Research population of 158 students was involved. 73 students were selected as research sample. Mean scores for 5 pre tests and 5 post tests were compared to seek effectiveness of mind mapping and lecture teaching methods respectively. Research data was analyzed descriptively using means and standard deviation. Finding showed that there was a significant difference in the means of achievement after using mind mapping based teaching method, in which difference values for 5 pre tests and 5 post tests were 0.9562, 1.8572, 1.1715, 1.5715 and 1.4143 respectively. Means differences recorded for lecture method were 0.0264, 0.8553, 1.1715, 0.1842 and 0.2421 respectively. The students’ acceptance towards mind mapping based method was positive-medium with respect to the control group (M=4.07, SD=.823).
