The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of using teachingstrategy (7E's) on understanding scientific concepts and acquisition inquirythinking skills among basic stage students in the light of their academic selfconceptas compared with the traditional method. The study used a purposefulsample that consisted of (60) eighth grade famales. The sample was dividedinto two groups: experimental group which was studied by using a strategybased on constructivist strategy (7E's), and a controlled group which wasstudied by using the traditional method. Data were collected by classifyingstudents according to their academic self-concept (High vs Low) by using theacademic self-concept scale, a scientific concepts and inquiry thinking skillstests were administered pre and post the experiment. Data were analyzedusing the analysis of variance of factorial design 2x2 ANCOVA.The study revealed that students performed better with the 7E's strategyover those of the traditional method in their understanding of scientificconcepts and in acquiring inquiry thinking skills. The researcher foundthat the high academic self-concept students performed better than the lowacademic self-concept students in their understanding of scientific conceptsand in acquiring inquiry thinking skills.In the light of these results, the study recommended carrying out furthersimilar studies on different educational subjects and levels.
