on this main purpose action research in practice-based was applied in the study, one of the

qualitative research methods. The study group of the research consists of 22 pre-service science

teachers. It was observed that pre-service science teachers structured non-scientific claims, could

not provide sufficient grounds, and could not use their rebuttal skills adequately before the

implications. After the implications, it was observed that the pre-service science teachers had

the targeted arguments and were able to write grounds and rebuttal in the categories of

completely/partially correct to their arguments.
