Sample Lessons
At the California Science Project at Irvine, we design hands-on, inquiry-based preK through grade 12 lessons in the 5E format. In the 5E model, students are active in "e"ngaging, "e"xploring, "e"xplaining, "e"laborating, and "e"valuating science content in meaningful ways. Our lessons are designed and implemented by teachers, scientists, and linguists who work together to embed language learning strategies into rich, standards-based science lessons.

For our professional development, we work with teachers to learn the content of the lessons as well as develop the pedagogical skills needed to enact them. For a sample of our lessons, please see below.
