Abstract


Viimaste aastate uuringute tulemused näitavad, et õpilased hindavad üha enam loodusainete õppimise vajalikkust, kuid endiselt on teemavaldkondi, mille õppimise vastu nad huvi ei tunne, kuna need on vähe seotud nende igapäevaelu või sotsiaalse keskkonnaga. Vähe on aga uuritud seda, kuidas loodusteaduslike õppeainete sisu esitamine eri kontekstis mõjutab õpilaste huvi õppekavaga kindlaks määratud teemade õppimise vastu. Artikli põhieesmärk on välja selgitada, millises kontekstis esitatud loodusteaduslike teemade õppimisest on 9. klassi õpilased (N = 848) huvitatud ning milline on õpilaste motivatsioon õppida loodusteaduslikke õppeaineid. Andmeid koguti katsetatud ja valideeritud kompleksinstrumendiga. Andmete analüüsimiseks kasutati nii peakomponentide kui ka klasteranalüüsi meetodeid. Leitud dimensioonid kirjeldavad õpilaste huvide kontekstuaalset iseloomu. K-keskmiste klasteranalüüsi tulemusena eristus nelja loodusaine sees kolm (kokku 12) õpilaste motivatsiooniprofiili, mis võimaldavad kirjeldada põhikooli lõpuklasside õpilaste huvisid ja motivatsioonilisi suundumusi loodusainete õppimisel. Õpilaste motivatsioon õppida loodusaineid on üldiselt suur ja seda nii tüdrukutel kui ka poistel.
