Abstract

         This research was to study learning achievement, analytical thinking, and satisfaction in biology subject on animal anatomy and physiology of eleventh grade students by using brain-based learning emphasizing analytical thinking. The participants of this research were 24 eleventh grade students at Princess Chulabhorn's College Chonburi in the second semester of academic year 2017. They were randomly selected by using the cluster sampling method. The instruments of the research consisted of 1) lesson plans using the brain-based learning, 2) learning achievement test, 3) analytical thinking test, and 4) satisfaction in biology subject questionnaire. The data were analyzed using mean, standard deviation, t-test for dependent samples, and t-test for one sample. The results of this research indicated that: 1)The posttest scores of students’ learning achievement after using brain-based learning emphasizing analytical thinking were statistically significant higher than pretest scores at the .05 level. 2)The posttest scores of students’ learning achievement after using brain-based learning emphasizing analytical thinking were statistically significant higher than 70 percent criterion at the .05 level. 3) The posttest scores of students’ analytical thinking after using brain-based learning emphasizing analytical thinking were statistically significant higher than pretest scores at the .05 level. 4) The students’ satisfaction in biology subject after using brain-based learning emphasizing analytical thinking were at high level.
