Introduction to the 5Es Model

  1. 1. The 5 E Instructional Model A Framework for Inquiry-Based Instruction
  2. 2. Science ContentConcepts Process Skillsof Science of Science Observing Communicating Classifying Measuring Relating objects in space & time Predicting Inferring Controlling variables Defining operationally Experimenting
  3. 3. Science Process Skills Observing Communicating Classifying Measuring Relating objects in space & time Predicting Inferring Controlling variables Defining operationally Experimenting
  4. 4. EngageEvaluate Explore 5 E’s Science Lesson Elaborate Explain
  5. 5. Engage Activity which will  Demonstration focus student’s  Reading attention, stimulate  Free Write their thinking, and access prior  Analyze a Graphic knowledge. Organizer  KWLStudent asks questions such as,Why did this happen?  BrainstormingWhat do I already know about this?What have I found out about this?Shows interest in the topic.
  6. 6. Explore Activity which gives  Perform an students time to think Investigation and  Read Authentic investigate/test/make Resources to Collect decisions/problem Information solve, and collect  Solve a Problem information.  Construct a Model
  7. 7. Explain Activity which allows  Student Analysis & students to analyze Explanation their exploration.  Supporting Ideas with Evidence Student’s understanding is  Structured Questioning clarified and modified  Reading and Discussion through a reflective  Teacher Explanation activity.  Thinking Skill Activities: compare, classify, error analysis
  8. 8. Elaborate Activity which  Problem Solving expands and solidifies  Decision Making student thinking  Experimental Inquiry and/or applies it to a real-world situation.  Thinking Skill Activities: compare, classify, apply
  9. 9. Evaluate Activity which allows  Any of the Previous the teacher to assess Activities student performance  Develop a Scoring and/or Tool or Rubric understandings of  Performance concepts, skills, Assessment processes, and applications.  Produce a Product  Journal Entry  Portfolio
  10. 10. Types of Questions Attention Focusing: Have you seen? Do you notice? Measuring & Counting: How many? How long? Comparison (for sharper observation): In how many ways are your seeds alike and how do they differ? Action: What happens if… you place your pill bug in damp sand? …you pinch the seedleaves off a young plant? Problem-posing (more sophisticated, follows exploration & understanding, not a good first question): Can you find a way to… make your plant grow sideways? Can you separate salt from water? Can you make a sinking object float?
  11. 11. Attention-focusing questions Have you seen? Do you notice? Engage Measuring & Counting and Comparison Questions How many? How long? Evaluate Explore In how many ways? 5 E’s Action & Science Lesson Problem- Solving Question s What happens if… Elaborate ExplainCan you find a way to…
