Using a 5E Instructional Model with Next Gen Science Standards


Share with a colleague


Do you know the difference between “next generation- aligned” and next generation-designed learning resources?

Learn more in this free 1-hour live webinar, where we’ll explore how next generation curriculum is designed and how the the 5E instructional cycle -- engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate -- is often mistaken as alignment connecting the three dimensions of the Next Generation Science Standards.


See how we use the 5Es differently to engage students’ curiosity with phenomena they unpack through Socratic dialogue, investigations, scientific experiments and engineering challenges.

Key Takeaways:

  1. How the 5Es relate to Science and Engineering Practices.

  2. Shifting from an “I do, we do, you do” model to: “you do, and we are thought partners.”

  3. Why next generation-designed is better thannext generation-aligned.

We’ll take live Q&A and discuss the challenges with “next generation alignment” when a curriculum is not next generation-designed.
