21 Five E’s Overview ExtendEnrichment

22 Five ’s Instructional Strategy The Five E Model is one way to prioritize student involvement in their own learning (both in terms of physical activity and active construction of understandings) This model is a version of a “learning cycle” This Five E’s learning cycle suggests the design and implementation of lessons to activate prior knowledge, shape the formation of new knowledge, and provide opportunities to use the new knowledge.
