Enhancing Critical Thinking in Physics through Real Engagement in Active Problem Solving (REAPS) Model
The research was conducted to find the effect of Real Engagement in the Active Problem-Solving model on the critical thinking skills of secondary-level students in physics. All the 10th-class students of one girls and boys public school of Sargodha city were the population. Using Quasi-experimental design, two sections from each school were selected. One section from each school was randomly allocated to as traditional and one as treatment group. Traditional groups were taught by their respective teachers and the experimental groups were treated by the researcher. A test of critical thinking skills was developed from nineteen (19) topics from 10th-class Physics published by Punjab Text Book Board Lahore (2020) and administered as a pre-test and post-test. Data were analysed by t-test, one-way ANOVA, and MANOVA. It was found that 10th-class students treated with REAPS model performed better in the critical thinking skills test in physics as compared to the students taught through traditional methods. It is recommended that the Directorate of Staff Development may arrange training workshops for in-service teachers to use REAPS model in their daily teaching.
