AbstractThe current research aims to identify the impact of mental maps strategy in the collection and retention of information among fourth-grade students in the subject of literary history of the Arab-Islamic civilization.
To investigate, the aim of the research hypotheses formulated researcher Elsafreeten:
1 There is no difference is statistically significant at the level of significance (0.05) between the average scores of the experimental group students studying material history of the Arab Islamic civilization according to mental maps strategy between the average scores of the control group students who are studying the same material on the way according to the usual (traditional) .
2 There is no difference is statistically significant at the level of significance (0.05) between the average scores retention of information for students of the experimental group who are studying material history of the Arab-Islamic civilization, according to the mental maps strategy between the average scores of the control group students who are studying the same material on the way according to the usual ( Traditional).
To investigate, the researcher chose determined experimentally a partial set, a design of a post-test of equal groups, and select Central junior researcher in Najaf to be the research sample, and reached the sample (60) students from fourth grade literature students at the rate of 30 students per group of two sets Find (experimental and control).
Researcher conducted parity shows the sample students in Kalzca variables and academic achievement for parents, and chronological age of the students measured in months.
Having identified the researcher scientific article of the first three chapters of the book material history of the Arab-Islamic civilization, the researcher taught the two sets of search himself, and coined the researcher targets behavioral three seasons was counted (74) behaviorally target three levels of Bloom's Taxonomy (knowledge, comprehension, application) The researcher plans to study prepared for the two sets of search and display models, including a group of experts and specialists in teaching methods and measurement and evaluation.
The researcher developed a research tool consists of an achievement test to measure academic achievement level of the students, and the test grades the post of (30) paragraph test of multiple choice having studied the two students Bnevsh.olthalil search results used researcher appropriate statistical methods to achieve the objectives of the research and the research found to the following result:
Outweigh the experimental group students who have studied the material history of the Arab-Islamic civilization to the control group students who have studied the same material in the usual way, and applied researcher test again on the two sets of research students (experimental and control) after (14) days of the first test to measure the retention of information and show there is a difference in that for the experimental group students.
One of the conclusions reached by the current research are:
1 possibility of teaching according to the mental maps strategy on the development of historical thinking among students of the experimental group compared to the control group students skills.
2 The use of mind maps strategy in teaching means increased interaction and harmony among students process and course material as well as the use of many of the skills and means at the same time and this leads to a desire to get high education and the demand for material and then increase academic achievement.
3 mental maps advantage in raising the educational attainment level of the experimental group students who have studied the material history of the Arab-Islamic civilization using mind maps.
In light of the search results, the researcher recommended a number of recommendations including:
1 to benefit the educational training and rehabilitation centers for teachers of mental maps in the teaching of history in middle school.
2 provide the authors of the curriculum sufficient and clear information about the importance of mental maps strategy, to take that into account in the design and planning of the curriculum.
3 by the Ministry of Education to train teachers lectureship and for the development of educational and professional competencies for the purpose of providing multiple and diverse and ongoing experiences for students in order to raise the academic level they have.
