Abstract

This study aim to systematically design environment learning module based on constructivist learning approach and to measure its effectiveness on attitudes towards environmental management among some secondary students, involving two different schools in Pekanbaru, Riau Indonesia. This quasi-experimental study employ pre and post control group design design involving some 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 the intervention process, students in the experimental groups are exposed with environmental learning experience using the designed module, integrated with the constructivist approach. On the other hand, their counterparts in the control groups undergo conventional teaching and learning routines. Essentially, the findings reveal the module has improved the students' attitude regardless of their cognitive ability Findings generated from this study provide empirical evidence on the effectiveness of constructivist approach in environment teaching particularly in improving students' attitudes towards their environment.
