Part 2: Written explanation

Within these sequential lesson plans, I believe that I have adequately addressed multiple elements of the
Quality Teaching Model, and hence provided differentiation in learning for multiple student learning
groups. These elements were achieved through the construction of activities based upon learnings of
differing pedagogical theories. These lessons involve utilization of inquiry based learning tasks, as well as
emphasis of the 5 E instructional model. Such pedagogical theories allow myself as a teacher to assist
student learning and to provide a stronger foundation of learning than simply following textbook learning
strategies such as worksheets (Leat & Higgins, 2010).

Differentiation in diverse learning needs is crucial in allowing for academic success of all student learning
abilities (Tomlinson, 2014). To address such needs, particularly through engagement of different
collaborative tasks and activities, is shown to positively influence academic outcomes of students (Cabrera,
Nora, Crissman & Terenzini, 2002; Ullman, 2015). Furthering literature has found that student engagement
within a classroom environment is greater when collaborative, team-based tasks are introduced (Ramsden,
2003). With this in mind, it was essential for myself as a future teacher to embrace pedagogical theories
and to design my lessons in a manner that addresses such engagement.

Inquiry based learning models play an essential role in enhancing student success and ability (Wang, Lin,
Spalding, Klecka, & Odell, 2011). Opposed to standardized methods of teaching such as copying notes from
a whiteboard, inquiry based learning acts to create active learning involvement within a classroom
(Blessinger & Carfora, 2014). Providing this framework as a teacher will allow my students to make
observations, analyze findings, and draw conclusions across multiple fields of content, offering the
development of creativity in thinking (Blessinger & Carfora, 2014). It is essential that I focus my approach
to lesson planning in a manner that

Utilization of the 5 E’s approach will allow me to identify levels of student understanding, identify any
misconceptions, but most importantly allow me to build experiences to assess their knowledge of a
concept. Using this approach, I can allow my students to define, organize, elaborate, and reflect upon their
learnings through interaction with their peers and environment (Bybee, 1997). With specific reference to
science, students can connect with classroom content through practical activity, allowing for enhanced
inquiry-based learning. Within these specific lesson plans, I believe that students meet all goals of the 5 E
instructional model. Students

Highlight WHAT and WHY I’ve included things in my lesson, e.g examples of 5 E’s, engage students with tech – diverse
learning needs, assist students with visual impairments. Scaffolding through lessons – lesser help available to students in
second and third lessons. Learning tools – think pair share with students in lesson 2 & 3 allows students to develop ideas
amongst eachother, enhanced collaborative learning, positive framework.

In the reflection unit planning choices, resources and differentiation approaches are critically supported by the
literature and theories from the teaching area.
