dc.description.abstractThis project focused on the utilization of the 5E method on student understanding of middle school physical science. The 5E model of instruction has shown to be a valid method for students to gain understanding through an active participation in their own learning. When compared to a traditional method of learning, such as using lecture, note taking, and annotating this study showed the 5E method can yield positive results in student understanding, long-term memory, student motivation and teacher motivation. The traditional method, however, can prove to be effective in increasing student understanding and long-term memory as well.en
