My teaching model has been adapted from the Harkness method. While it is ever evolving based on student input and classroom culture, below is a description of the foundation.
My students need a framework that organizes what's expected and codifies how they should learn in a discussion based environment. Our Biology teacher stresses the 5E method, but that didn't seem to adapt to our classroom learning environment (which is a shame because it would have been nice to align methods across disciplines). After a little research, I decided that the Study Cycle was a really good fit-with some modifications.
