4E x 2 Instructional Model

The 4E x 2 Instructional Model was designed to unite three major learning constructs (inquiry instruction, formative assessment, and reflective practice) that have all been shown to improve learning. When well integrated, these learning constructs help facilitate deeper teaching and more powerful learning experiences. All the lessons, designed and available under Lesson Plans, use the 4E x 2 Model.
