In this investigation the 5E learning cycle was used to see if student learning, motivation, and teacher attitude were improved in high school biology. A restructured curriculum was implemented to emphasize the 5E learning cycle model. Student assessments, surveys, and interviews were analyzed to see the change in student learning and motivation. Teacher journals, observation, and surveys were analyzed to see the change in teacher attitude. Results did not reveal an overall change in student learning, however student perception of their learning and motivation did improve. Teacher motivation and attitude improved but at the expense of time.
