Abstract

In this study, we improved a science curriculum that was developed in 2004 using Concept Mapping Software for Reconstructing Learning processes, and introduced into a new lesson in 2006. The result of comparative analysis between two lessons showed that students in the lesson in 2006 had more deep understanding than the students in the lesson in 2004. Furthermore, teachers’ evaluation revealed that this curriculum improvement was effective to support students deepen their scientific understanding.
