Abstract

Studies focusing on pre-service teachers have shown that the inclusion of the learning cycle model in a methods course result in improvement in understanding of and attitude toward the learning cycle model of inquiry. However, preservice teachers’ understanding and beliefs about the learning cycle model may remain varied and inaccurate and their implementation may be inhibited due to their beliefs about teaching and learning and roles as teachers. In this article, we will discuss our extended 5E learning cycle model introduction approach consisting of active engagement and immersion of preservice teacher in the process of learning about the 5E model.
