The sample consists of 28 students; 14 experimental and 14 control .The method used in the study was the Quasi Experimental Design, while the instruments of the study were Demographic Questionnaire, Self-efficacy scale and Achievement test. Findings indicate that students proposed to the strategy performed significantly better than the students who did not. There are significant statistical differences at the level (α<= 0.05) in achievement test in favor of the experimental group.
