Created in the late 1980s by a team led by author Rodger Bybee, the popular BSCS 5E Instructional Model includes five phases: engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate. Bybee wrote this book to be just as well organized and practical as the model itself. Much of it is devoted to an in-depth explanation of how to put the model to work in the classroom, but the book also
• explores the historical idea of what can be considered instructional models and education research that supports such models;
• explains how to connect the model to the Next Generation Science Standards, STEM education, 21st-century skills, and implementation in your classroom; and
• weaves a narrative that encompasses education research, the psychology of learning, and the reality of classroom practice.
Firmly rooted in research but brought to life in a conversational tone, The BSCS 5E Instructional Model addresses every teacher’s concern: how to become more effective in the classroom—and enjoy more of those teachable moments.
