Back to Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day
Learn about the benefits of the flipped classroom, a powerful approach to teaching that helps “students to become learners who can learn for themselves and by themselves.” In this model of instruction, students watch recorded lectures for homework and complete their assignments, labs, and tests in class. The Flip Your Classroom
book guides you in creating a relationship-rich environment that personalizes learning, increases student-teacher interaction, and leads to greater student understanding of key concepts. Two experienced practitioners of the flipped classroom explain what a flipped classroom is, why it works, and how to flip a classroom in any subject, grades 5–12. Discover how their approach helps students who struggle to learn during class time, students who are so busy with extracurricular activities that they miss out on course content, and students who "go through the motions" of learning but never get the deeper objectives of your class. Drawing from their experiences with flipping their high school science classes, the authors introduce you to the flipped mastery model and explain the logistics of conducting a flipped classroom—from the equipment needed to create videos, to what to do during class, to how to get administrator buy in. Find out how flipping your classroom can lead to real differentiation of instruction and increased opportunities for classroom formative assessment.
