English Abstract

This study aimed at exploring the impact of using PowerPoint presentations on students` achievement and the retention of information of the tenth grade students. To achieve the goals of the study, the researcher applied a quasi-experimental method and constructed a pre and post test to achieve the reliability of the instrument. The sample in this study comprised 66-female students who was selected purposively from Um Amara Public Secondary School in Amman. The students were divided into two groups, experimental and control. The experimental group ,which comprised 34 students, was taught English( Action Pack 10) by using PowerPoint presentations while the control group ,which comprised 32students, was taught by using the traditional techniques such as the blackboards and direct lectures(when the role of the students is just to sit, listen and have no space to participate). Data was analyzed by applying (Ttest) and (ANCOVA). The result showed that there were statistical differences in the students 'achievement and their information retention in favour of using PowerPoint presentations. An analysis of the results of the current study showed that PowerPoint presentations are an effective method in teaching English.
