Abstract: This study investigated the efiects of vee-mapping strategy, as a gender responsive technique, on basic science achievement of ntale attd female students from junior secondary schools Kaura Local Govemment Area of Kaduna Slate. Three research questions were raised and two null hypotheses fonttulated to guide the study A randomized pre-test-post-test control group design was used. Forty male and 40 female JSS two students in two public schools constituted the sample. The school were selected using the simple random sampling technique. The students in intact were also randomly assigned to experimental group and a control groups. The instruntent for data collection was a Basic Science Achievement Test (BSAT) with a reliability coeflicient of 0.78 using the test-re-test method. The research questions were answered using mean and standard deviation while thehypothesis were tested using ANCOVA at 0.05 level of significance. Findings of the study revealed no significant difference between the post~test achievement ntean scores of male atul female students in Basic Science Achievement Test among others. it was reconnnendetl that basic science teachers should employ the vee-mapping strategy as rt gentler responsive- strategy for be enhancing students’ tltinking capacity for improved achievement in basic science.
