5E Instructional Model Course

Create engaging, student-driven lessons that empower your students using the 5E model of instruction. Includes example 5E Unit

The 5E model centers around students discovering the information through inquiry-investigations and then processing their learning and applying it. This course will guide you through creating lessons that will foster a students thirst for knowledge and put them in the driver's seat. By the end of the course you will have the confidence to create your own 5E model unit where you become more of a coach and facilitator instead of the giver of information as you guide your students through the discovery process.

Imagine what your life would be like when you enter school and you have all of your lessons ready to go for the next two or three weeks.  Lessons that are engaging, thought provoking, and student empowering.  You no longer spend your days giving the students information, instead you spend your time guiding the students as they investigate and create their own ideas  about the concept.  And you had a community of supportive teachers to collaborate with guided by someone that has been successfully creating classes where students take ownership of their learning for years and is still in the classroom just like you.
