Hello! My name is Tareen and I am in the Master's Program for Elementary Education at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. This is my eleventh year coaching a swim team and I also currently work as a part time para-educator in Howard County, Maryland. I have always loved working with and teaching kids. I am super excited to be able to turn this passion into a career!

Mon, Dec 02, 2019 4:30 PM 5E for ELL
This article is unique in that it does not simply explain the 5E model, but it goes further in depth and explains how the 5E model can be differentiated for ELL students. With most other papers or articles about the 5E method, it speaks on the different phases and how to implement that into a classroom, sometimes giving specific examples within a lesson plan or unit plan. Although it is important to know how to implement the method, we also need to understand that differentiating within the phases may be necessary, especially for ELL students. This article gives insight into how teachers can differentiate and modify the phases for the variety of students they may encounter, especially ELL students.

It addresses these questions in an open-minded way, as all teachers are unique in their practices as well as the classrooms they teach in. It provides support for the answers it gives the reader with insight from other professionals in their research of the 5E model. I think this is a great article for new teachers or teachers who are new to the method as it provides insight into how to use the model most effectively.
