Using the 5E Model to Implement the Next Generation Science Standards

by: Rodger W. Bybee

This chapter provides recommendations for translating standards into instructional materials that are usable for those with the real task of teaching. The discussion provides an affirmative answer to the question: How can the BSCS 5E Instructional Model be used to implement the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)? The chapter draws on insights the author gained during his work on both the National Science Education Standards (NRC 1996) and the NGSS (NGSS Lead States 2013).

Based on lessons the author learned in translating NGSS to classroom instruction, this chapter provides helpful insights for those who have the task of applying the BSCS 5E Instructional Model. Additionally, the chapter modeled the 5E instructional sequence for addressing a performance expectation.

This free sample chapter also includes the Table of Contents, Preface, and Index.
