Akinyemi Olufunminiyi Akinbobola


This study investigated the effects of pictorial, written and verbal advance organizers on students’ attitude in Nigerian senior secondary school Physics. The study adopted a 4 x 2 factorial design. A total of 180 senior secondary two (SS2) Physics students took part in the study. Students’ Attitude Towards Physics Questionnaire (SATPQ) was the instrument used to collect the data with a reliability index of 0.88 using Pearson Product Moment Correlation (PPMC) approach and the data collected were analysis using analysis of covariance and t-test. The results showed that pictorial organizer was the most effective in enhancing students’ attitude towards Physics learning. This was then followed by written organizer while verbal organizer was found to be the least effective.. The results also showed an insignificant gender difference in the attitude of students towards Physics when taught with pictorial, written and verbal advance organizers. It is recommended that advance organizers should be used in schools to facilitate students’ attitude towards Physics.

Keywords: Students’ Attitude, Pictorial Organizer, Written Organizer, Verbal Organizer, Physics.
