I will be using an inquiry based learning by using the 5E’s teaching and learning model to develop my unit plan for foundation year level for science. The 5E’s teaching and learning model will support students learning and engagement in science. The Primary connections unit has five phases that are: Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate.
As explained by Noeni, each phase has a specific function. This model plays a significant role in the curriculum development process. I have also been using the 5E’s model in my other unit which is EDX2190 – Australian History and Geography: Curriculum and Pedagogy of which most of you might be doing it too. I believe that the 5E’s model engages the students in content which is significant to their learning. It also incorporates multiple learning styles and involves the students to meet their needs by interacting and developing new ideas.
Please feel free to visit the Primary connection and look at the 5E’s teaching and learning model.
