    Abstract

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate teachers' concerns in implementing the 5E Instructional Model in SriLanka. The Concerns-Based Adoption Model (CBAM) was used to identify teachers' Stages of Concern (SoC). The respondents for the survey on SoC consisted of 303 geography teachers from secondary schools in the Kalutara district. The study used a questionnaire adapted from the actual instruments of CBAM. The analysis across group of teachers, in terms of types of school and where they were located, revealed significant differences in their stages of concerns regarding the 5E instructional model - mainly in personal, management, consequence and collaboration. The results suggested that geography teachers are conscious of the 5E implementation. Alternative strategies are needed to take the teachers from the stage of personal concerns into task concerns and impact concerns, to ensure success of the curriculum reforms.
