Abstract: The objectives of this research are to analyze the achievement of the students differences between the students instructed with the scientific approach through Predict, Observe, Explain, Elaborate, Write and Evaluate (POE2WE) model and those instructed with the conventional model (existing class) and to study the effectiveness of the model on the topic of kinematics (rectilinear motion) at senior high school. The samples of research were the students (Grade 10) of several State Senior High Schools in Ciamis Regency (West Java) and taken randomly. The schools all served as model schools for the implementation of the Indonesian curriculum reform 2013 in academic year 2013/2014 on the topic of kinematics. The data of research were collected through pre-and post-test, questionnaire, observation of the learning process and indepht interview to obtain teachers’ responses. The data were analyzed by using thet-test to investigate the normali zed gain differences between two groups. The result of there search shows that the achievement of the students instructed with the scientific approach through POE2 WE Model is significantly different from the existing class. The difference score between the pre-test and post test of the students instructed with the scientific approach through POE2WE Model is 42.50 where as the difference score between the pre-test and post test of the students from the existing class is 29.93. The classes instructed with scientific approach through POE2WE Model have N-gain = 0.8 (high category) and those the existing class have N-gain = 0.5 (mediumcategory). The effectiveness test shows that the score of Sig (2-tailed)is (0.000)<α(0.05). Based on data analysis can be concluded that the scientific approach through POE2WE Model is more effective than the existing class.
