Abstract

          The purposes of the current study were to develop a learning management plan for non-fiction writing skills using the discovery method and mind mapping method that met the efficiency criteria of 75/75, to study the effectiveness index of the developed learning management plan, and to compare non-fiction writing skills of undergraduate students majoring in the Thai language before and after learning with the developed learning management plan. Randomized by the purposive sampling method, the samples were 49 second-year undergraduate students majoring in the Thai language in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Rajabhat Maha Sarakham University in the second semester of the 2019 academic year.
The instruments were a set of 6 learning management plans and a non-fiction writing test designed in 40 question items of multiple choices. The statistics used in data analysis were mean score, percentage, standard deviation, and a paired sample t-test. The results of the study were as follows.
The efficiency of the learning management for non-fiction writing skills using the discovery method and mind mapping method was found to at 78.73/80.77 which exceeded the criteria of 75/75. The effectiveness index of the developed learning management method was found at 0.5191. It could be interpreted that 51.91 % of the participants could improve their non-fiction writing skills after learning with the plan. Finally, the average participants’ score before learning with the developed learning management plan was at 24.00 while the score of the posttest was 32.31. There was a significant difference between the participants' pretest and posttest at a statistical level of .01.
