This week I am looking forward to teaching my three levels of physics classes in the flipped classroom model. For many reasons I spent our first trimester not flipping my classroom and now I am back and ready to go! I have learned so much since I last flipped my classroom that here are just a few things I have learned about flipping:
1. Modeling & practice are key! I am doing this tomorrow. The students will be modeling how I want them to flip and take notes. This will help me with students knowing what I want.
2. Encourage and encourage more and more questions. This is something I want my students to improve on.
3. I am doing a bold experiment this year where my students have to come up with something they are interested in, generate a list of questions for an "expert" in that field, and have an online conversation with an expert. I have a grand plan with this, and am looking forward to it. I will be keeping you posted on how this goes.
Well, here is my shortest blog ever. If you have any questions, thoughts, or ideas about what I am doing, please leave a message!
