5E As An Instructional Model

Why The 5E?

The 5E Model is the easiest and most effective way to transition your instruction to the NGSS.  That’s not to say you can’t incorporate other approaches – project-based, problem-based, and so on.  But in terms of your typical day to day learning sequences, I whole-heartedly recommend the 5E. It allows you to work within the confines of the typical school, district, and state requirements without sacrificing the important opportunities for exploration and sense-making that support the NGSS Performance Expectations.  And that’s why I teach it here!
