Abstract

The purpose of this study was an attempt to examine the differences between problem based learning and traditional teaching methods in order to perform high thinking skills and motivation among students in learning social studies. This quantitative study randomly sampled 60 students at a Junior Secondary School. Data were collected by using tests for thinking ability, observations on teaching methods and documentation for having learning achievement in social studies. The statistical analysis discovered three main findings. First, in terms of pretest, the experimental and control groups were equal, there was no significant difference. Second, there was a significant difference in high thinking ability between students taught by problem based and conventional methods. Third, the high thinking ability was significantly affecting the of learning motivation of students. For social studies, high thinking ability and learning motivation were positively correlated.
