dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to improve the Biology Achievement of Students through Student-Centered Teaching Methods in Biology Classes. The student-centered teaching method of teaching prepares the students to solve problems, makes them creative, and uses information from their environment and other sources to make a better life for themselves and society. The rank of students’ biology achievement in Biology class was very poor as observed the students’ scores. The sample includes respondents selected by using a simple random sampling technique from the randomly selected two classes of Meskerem Secondary School grade 10 students and biology teachers selected by using purposive technique. Grade 10 students and biology teachers of the schools were the source of the data. Data was collected by using students’ tests and teachers’ interviews. The collected data was analyzed and interpreted statistical by using tables, graphs, percentages and t-test. The study also revealed that biology teachers were habituated to implement teacher-centered teaching methods of teaching. The students’ biology achievement that learned through student-centered teaching method was improved than the teacher-centered teaching method in grade ten biology classes. In general, the Student-centered teaching method was an approach to learning which focus mainly on the interests of the students and transfer the focus of activity from the teachers to the learners. It increases learner autonomy and independence by putting responsibility for the students by imparting to their skills and the basis on how to learn a biology subject. en_US
