I graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in Environmental Science. Upon graduation I worked for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as an Environmental Scientist for 8 years. When I had my first child, I resigned from the EPA in order to raise and care for my children. A few years later, I started a successful online business in the pet industry. After my move to South Carolina, I decided that I was going to pursue my passion to teach children. I sold my business and went down the path of teaching by applying to my local school district to become a substitute teacher. I began to substitute and gain teaching experience working with children in the 4-11 age range. For the past two and half years, I have worked as a Pre-K teacher at a private school. I am currently enrolled in a Master’s program for Elementary Education as I work as a JSM Primary Teacher Assistant.

This misconception probably was derived by how teachers tau...

The 5 E model is a great instructional model to use and allows the teacher many opportunities to assess the students throughout the lesson or multiple lessons. I would suggest using formative assessments during different stages of the 5 E model. As you teach and the students learn, you will be able to gather data on whether or not the lesson is providing the outcomes you anticipated. For instance...
