The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of teaching materials in physics, based on Context-BasedInstruction, REACT [Relating, Experiencing, Applying, Cooperating, and Transferring] and Computer-AssistedTeaching methods, on the academic success, interests and attitudes of student teachers. This study wasconducted with 159 ninth and tenth graders in three different Anatolian high schools in Trabzon that were chosenas field sites in the Spring semester in the context of Faculty-School Partnership. The results of the pre-and posttestthat were applied to a single group were compared, and the effects of Computer-Assisted Teaching, REACTand Context-Based Instruction on the attitudes, interests and academic success of the students toward physicswere considered. Based on the findings, it was concluded that REACT, the Content-Based Approach, andComputer-Assisted Learning Method were effective in increasing the student success, interest and positiveattitude.
