Author(s): Dr. Sarita

Abstract:
Mnemonic techniques have been studied by educational techniques in detail during the last decades. It is widely acknowledged by educationist that any activity that has elements of interest as well as and enthuses students. Most secondary and senior secondary school teachers teach through lecture. Even science is taught through lecture which does not give justice to it because science is essentially a process driven discipline. The study aims at developing the skill of remember periodic table through Mnemonics. The study was conducted on 55 randomly selected students using pretest- posttest single group design. A 20 item test developed by the investigation was used as a pretest as well as the post test. The 3 phase treatment was geared up to teaching periodic table of all elements and rules for deriving these through activities. Gain scores (%) were calculated and mean gain score was sufficiently high to support the conclusion that the exposure given to students through Mnemonics based teaching and learning of science is effective in enthusing them and increasing their achievement.
