Abstract

This study is aimed to systematically design an environment constructivism module based on constructivism approach and to measure its effectiveness in instilling positive attitudes towards enviroment. This study involves secondary students, from two different schools in Pekanbaru, Riau Indonesia. This quasi-experimental study employs pre and post control group design involving 152 Level Seven students segregated into two; experimental and control groups. Each group is also stratified in terms of students' cognitive ability (high and low). Throughout intervention process, students in the experimental groups are exposed to environmental constructivism experience using the designed module, while their counterparts in the control groups undergo constructivist and conventional routines. Findings generated from this study proved that there is no relationship between the students' groups and constructivism approach with attitudes towards environmental management. However, it has shown that constructivism approach can increase positive attitude towards environmental management.
