How to teach is one of the major problems faced by today’s Science teachers. Constructivist approach is one technique wherein the teacher is a facilitator and serves as a guide to learners. She/he helps the students explore and formulate their own ideas, and help them do the “learning by doing”. It focuses on independent learning, being creative and critical thinking. Guided discovery is student-centered teaching approach thru illustrative materials for students to study independently. Pictorial organizer referred to as concept maps or cognitive organizer helps learners depict the relationships between facts terms and ideas within a learning task.
This study aims to investigate the effectiveness of Guided Discovery teaching approach with corresponding exposure to a pictorial organizer and identify gender difference of BS Architecture students’ scores using TUG-K.
Results revealed that students, specifically females, performed better than males after being taught with Guided discovery teaching approach and corresponding exposure to a pictorial organizer.
