Abstract


The acquisition of the digestive system concepts is still problematic. In this study, we assessed whether 3rd year secondary school learners have acquired and assimilated these concepts at the end of the module. The results we obtained showed that young learners have problems in acquiring these concepts to varying degrees. The role of aliments, the organs and functions of the digestive system, and the phenomena of digestion were relatively acquired by the students. However, the dangers threatening the digestive system and the means of prevention remained unknown for the great majority of these learners. We have also found that learners confused with the digestive system and the respiratory system in some representations.

Abstract: (french)


Les concepts du système digestif posent toujours problème au niveau de son acquisition. Nous nous sommes proposé dans la présente étude de savoir si les élèves de 3ème année collège arrivent à acquérir et à assimiler ce concept à la fin du module. Les résultats que nous avons obtenus ont montré que les jeunes apprenants ont des problèmes d’acquisition desdits concepts à des degrés variables. Le rôle des aliments, les organes et les fonctions du système digestif ainsi que les phénomènes de la digestion ont été relativement acquis par les élèves de notre étude. Par contre, les dangers qui menacent le système digestif et les moyens de prévention sont restés inconnus pour la grande majorité de ces apprenants. Nous avons également constaté que les apprenants présentaient certaines confusions entre le système digestif et le système respiratoire.
