Designing STEM Learning Using the BSCS 5E Instructional Model
Although many educators are interested in implementing STEM, they often are unsure how to get started. This paper will share how a middle school teacher and a university professor collaborated to use the BSCS 5E Instructional Model to develop and teach a design unit to 8th-grade students. This paper suggests that using the 5E Instructional Model is an effective strategy to design, adjust, and personalize STEM curriculum.
