Testimonials From Classroom Teachers

“I started using the 5E Lessons last year and noticed an immediate change in the level of engagement (I teach 7-9 science in a small rural Missouri school). I also saw increased understanding, retention, and assessment scores.

The feedback from students was positive–they liked that there were multiple ways of attaining new information and knowledge. My 8th graders take the standardized test (Missouri Assessment Program- MAP) in science and last year’s class had the highest level of proficient and advanced of any class I’ve administered the test to in 11 years of teaching up to that point (6% higher than the previous highest class and NO below basic)!

In addition to student improvement, using the 5E units has helped me develop a much more fluid and comprehensive curriculum and curriculum map. I have moved on to self-paced learning and the 5E units (with some modification of delivery) fits very well within that model. In terms of ease and happiness– using these units is arguably the best decision I have made.”R. McMillan

“When you’ve been in the classroom for 40 years the one thing you don’t want to do is waste valuable time reinventing the wheel. Kesler 5E lessons are designed to help any teacher save time, but the best part is they use the time tested 5E method that has been around for decades because it is successful in the classroom.

These lessons walk you through the Engage, Explore, Explain,Elaborate, and Evaluate steps of all the topics needed for middle school science taught using standards- whether state or NGSS.

These are perfect for new teachers trying to learn proper sequencing or people teaching out of their area of expertise for the first time. For the veteran teacher they are a place to start that can lead to a custom designed unit on almost any science topic.

Because you can pick and choose which sections to use or skip or add to the lessons are totally customizable. These lessons can supplement a textbook or web based program or be used in place of one.

As a National Board Certified Teacher I know a good lesson when I see it and these units are the perfect foundation for a comprehensive middle school science curriculum. ” S. Cumiskey

“Last year was my first year using the 5E lessons in 8th grade science and after years of dropping performances, my passing percentage went WAY up with a tough group!

The engage activities were spot on. I loved the video links which saved me so much time searching for appropriate and engaging content.

The students loved being able to take ownership over their learning in the station labs which also gave me quick formative assessment opportunities and opened up lots of teachable moments! The interactive notebook combined with the power point presentations allowed kids to see, hear, and write the curriculum. And the assessments were a great way to hold them accountable for learning. Having modified options was a life saver for me as well as for my special ed and 504 students!

This year I added the bell ringers. We just finished our first week of school starting with bell ringers on the very first day and I can already tell that this was a wise investment!

Engaging, educationally sound, and easy to use – I am a Kesler Science fan.”A. Reynolds

“Kesler’s 5E model has transformed my teaching entirely. My classroom has become more student-led and I have embraced the change. My students are more engaged, and I enjoy seeing their progress, creativity and curiosity in science!”C. Murphy
