The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of a suggested model RW based on constructivism on the reflective thinking of the secondary school students in Gaza. The sample consisted of (87) female students in two groups; control 43 and experimental 44. The researchers used experimental design of two randomly chosen groups with the same pre and post tests for each. Different statistical tests included in the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) were used to analyze the data collected while answering the study questions and testing the hypotheses. The results showed that there were statistically significant differences at (α ≤ 0.05) between Experimental group and Control group in relation to the reflective thinking in favor of Experimental group. Also, the effect size of using the model based on constructivism was significantly large on students' reflective thinking. The researchers strongly recommended training teachers to design models based on constructivism to enhance students thinking in general and particularly reflective thinking. Also, to carry out further research on the effect of using constructivism models in education and probable ways to enhance thinking skills of the secondary school studentsزrevise the last sentence
