What is the 5E’s Instructional Model?
The 5E’s is the template for the NKCPS Virtual
lesson planning. It is also a basis for many hyperdoc
templates. It is a constructivist model for learning
that has 5 levels described with these words:
Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate.
Students will be accessing learning through
inquiry with this model. It promotes active learning.
How does it work?
Engage: should provoke questions in the learner by engaging them with something to think about that is relevant. Explore: Students do the exploring to generate ideas from new and prior learning. Explain: Here the teacher gets to model or deliver instruction and introduce vocabulary. Elaborate: The student will use all the information from engage, explore, and explain to propose solutions, make decisions or design experiments. Evaluate: this is the assessment phase, students can reflect on the progress of their own learning, access against a rubric the teacher has provided, and give peer feedback.
What are some advantages and disadvantages of using this model?
The 5 E’s instructional model is widely cited as an
effective online learning model. To learn more explore this ISTE e-book publication
