INSTRUMENT FOR LESSON PLANNING
SCOPE AND FORMAT
The instrument provided is based on the principles of the 5E Instructional Model that is expected to be used to facilitate a learner centred approach to teaching and learning. Emphasis is placed on problem solving which requires the student to make use of prior competencies to think critically, reflectively and creatively as individuals and as members of a collaborative learning group to arrive at a solution. The model is also to be used in a manner that allows for the key elements of the NSC Teaching Guides to be considered. While on the surface the model appears to be linear, the dynamic nature of the problem solving process requires a non-linear approach.
It is important to note that the 5E model is applicable across grade levels and subject areas. Additional information regarding the application of the model in a manner that is relevant to the intended context, may be obtained from the NSC Teaching Guides (2018).
