The Learning Cycle in Elementary Science — Tundra: Life in the Polar Extremes Hands-on activity is important in science. As students observe, measure, and manipulate, they are exploring content as well as the very nature of science. Yet these hands-on investigations don’t always equate with deep, meaningful, and correct understanding of scientific concepts. In many cases, students will interpret an activity in a way that strengthens misconceptions, rather than corrects them. How can teachers ensure that hands-on science leads to real learning? One effective way is through the implementation of the learning cycle. The learning cycle incorporates hands-on activity, reading science text, directed discussion, and problem solving. Exploration: Students are engaged through firsthand experiences and investigations.Concept Introduction: Students build ideas through text and guided discussions.Concept Application: Students use ideas to solve new problems. Since the learning cycle was introduced in 1967, many variations have been created.

Lesson Plan Writing Guide This guide is not meant to be the one and only way to develop a lesson plan. It is a general overview that highlights the key points of creating a lesson plan. Below is a list of the steps involved in developing a lesson plan as well as a description of what each component should be. You may also find this new Lesson Plan Template to be useful for creating your lesson plans! The first thing to consider, obviously, is what you want to teach. That’s it!

Learning Cycle tuntisuunnitelmia ja LC kompakti esittely The lesson plans on the AGPA website use the Learning Cycle as the instructional model for its lesson plans. The learning cycle rests on constructivism as its theoretical foundation. "Constructivism is a dynamic and interactive model of how humans learn" (Bybee, 1997, p. 176). A constructivist perspective assumes students must be actively involved in their learning and concepts are not transmitted from teacher to student but constructed by the student. In the early 1960's, Robert Karplus and his colleagues proposed and used an instructional model based on the work of Piaget. The learning cycle used in these lesson plans follows Bybee's (1997) five steps of Engagement, Exploration, Explanation, Elaboration, and Evaluation. A. The purpose of engagement is to: Focus students' attention on the topic. Evaluation of Engagement: Evaluation's role in engagement revolves around the pre-assessment. B. How well are the students collecting data? C. D. Index | Next: Graphic Organizers Back to Top

Objectives - Lesson Plan Objectives and Goals Definition: Objectives are the first step in writing a strong 8-step lesson plan. After the Objective, you will define the Anticipatory Set. In the Objectives section of your lesson plan, write precise and delineated goals for what you want your students to be able to accomplish after the lesson is completed. Be Specific. To define your lesson's objectives, consider the following questions: What will students accomplish during this lesson? Additionally, you will want to make sure that the lesson's objective fits in with your district and/or state educational standards for your grade level. By thinking clearly and thoroughly about the goals of your lesson, you will ensure that you are making the most of your teaching time. Also Known As: Goals Examples:

Instructional Design The learning cycle (huomaa ero 5E) The learning cycle is a model of instruction based on scientific inquiry. This model encourages students to develop their own understanding of a scientific concept, explore and deepen that understanding, and then apply the concept to new situations. Exploration In the first phase, students work on their own or in small groups to explore scientific phenomena, manipulate materials, and attempt to solve problems. Concept development In the second phase of the learning cycle, the teacher leads the students through the introduction and development of the scientific concepts central to the lesson. Concept application The teacher now poses a new problem or situation for the students to solve based on their initial exploration and on the concepts they refined in the second phase.

Lesson Planning A sure ingredient in a recipe for disaster is "winging it." As in: "I'm not sure what I'll do today, I'll just wing it." Good classroom managers plan the lesson, procure the products needed, list the procedure to follow, and prepare for potential problems and pitfalls. Proper planning leads to less stress for you and more learning for your students. Preparing a Lesson Lesson plans do not consist of statements such as: "Today we'll cover Chapter 4 in the history book." Objectives. -The student will be able to recite the letters of the alphabet. List of materials needed. As stated earlier, these are just the "basics" of a lesson plan. You students will learn more with a properly designed lesson in which you have paid careful attention to detail. Action Verbs for Learning Objectives ©2004 Education Oasis About the Author: K.J.
