The aim of the research is to identify the impact of using the Alen Hover strategy on the achievement of second-grade intermediate students. To verify the goal of the research, the researcher put the null hypothesis, which states that: There is no statistically significant difference at the level of significance (0.05) between the average scores of the experimental group students who studied according to the Alen Hover strategy and the average scores of the control group students who studied according to the usual method in the achievement test. An experimental design with two experimental and control groups and with a post-test for the achievement variable was chosen. The research community represented the second grade average students in Ibn Aqil Intermediate School, for the academic year (2020-2021), which numbered (45) students divided into three study divisions, the two groups were rewarded with variables (previous information test in science, intelligence test, previous achievement in science), the scientific material was specified in the first and second units of the science book for the second intermediate grade, the Ministry of Education, for the year 2020. The experiment was applied in the first semester of the academic year (2020-2021), the necessary teaching plans were prepared, amounting to (16) plans for the experimental group, and the same for the control group, As for the research tools, the researcher prepared the achievement test, which consisted of (35) items of a multiple-choice type, which included (remembering, comprehension, application, analysis and synthesis), the validity and stability of the test were confirmed, as well as the extraction of psychometric properties. The results of the research, using the qui-test for two independent samples, showed that the students of the experimental group who studied according to the Alen Hover model excelled over the students of the control group who studied according to the usual method in the achievement test. From these results, the researcher concluded that teaching using the Alen Hover strategy has an impact on students' achievement, as the impact size was (0.44), and accordingly the researcher made a number of recommendations and suggestions related to the results of the research.
