5E-SESE is an online professional development system that includes self-directed modules and individualized coaching designed for teachers who teach science to students with significant cognitive disabilities .

Our Team Research Plan

Welcome

Iowa, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin all participate in the 5E-SESE project.

5E-SESE develops teachers' capacity to provide effective science instruction for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities. Teachers of these students will combine features of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and inquiry-based science teaching. They will create and teach 5E learning cycle science lessons.

5E-SESE is a collaboration among four state departments of education and two universities.

5E-SESE Professional Development System

Teachers experience the same cyle of instruction as their students.The 5E-SESE system engages teachers in a series of 5E learning cycles so that they can experience the same kind of learning cycle as their students will experience during science instruction. The Fundamentals modules are completed first and applied in each of the EE modules.
