  • Abstract This study quasi-experimental was designed to explore the efficacy of using science news to promote the development of secondary student’s science argumentation ability, and science self-efficacy. A pre-posttest design was employed to invite. One class of 11th grades (N=29) as the experimental group with 16 lessons argumentation instruction, while another class (N=29) with the similar backgrounds using traditional instruction served as the comparison group. The instruments of science argumentation ability test and science self-efficacy questionnaire and follow-up interviews were used to assure the two group students’ performance. The results indicated that the experimental group students outperform those of comparison group in science argumentation ability and science self-efficacy. Further analysis reveals that the low science self-efficacy students in the post-test of science argumentation ability outperform high science self-efficacy students. Finally, significant correlation exists between the experimental group students’ pre-posttest variation scores in the science argumentation ability test and the science self-efficacy questionnaire.
