Transcript of CCHS Flipped Classroom Project

Purpose: To learn what a flipped classroom is and is NOT, to learn why it works and to get the information and training you need to flip your classroom. You will also learn the mastery model, where students learn at their own pace.

We all spend inordinate amounts of time reteaching lessons to students who miss class. Recorded lectures can become your first line of defense. They also become invaluable tools for students who are studying for exams to review concepts.

The Need for Something New
Students working at different paces

: Slow, normal, accelerated. Unable to reach all levels of students.
Present in class but
not an active participant
Absent students
due to illness, UIL events, choir, band, athletics etc. and missing critical lessons
Not completing homework
because they could not apply what they learned in class to their assignments at home
Class time spent in lecture
and no time for practice
Low level Bloom's:
Outside of class
(via video,
podcast, article, website, etc)
High level Bloom's:
During class time with teacher support and peer discussion
Class Time is spent "up front"
No practice time with support
Teacher demonstrating all of the TWIRLS - not the students
Large classes-Limited class time
Minimum differentiated instruction
My Vision
are responsible for their learning
Face to face
time in class
Focus of class
time on higher order thinking
What is the flipped classroom?
Students receive content and direct instruction outside of class via a video tutorial created by me
Concept engagement takes place in the classroom with the help of the instructor
Students are in charge of
they receive content
Students learn how to
Student is the
and drives the learning
A classroom where the teacher is not the "
of information", but the "
on the journey"
A place where all students can get a
A class where all students are
in their learning.
Responsibility for learning
flipped from teacher's hands to students' hands
Face to face time
flipped from teacher-focused to student-focused
Focus of class time
flipped from lower-order to higher-order thinking
What is different?
Students now receive direct instruction via video tutorials created by me.
They watch these videos at home using Cornell Notes as a guided outline
The videos are about 10 minutes
Student Support
You know exactly what you child is learning.
You can learn or relearn Physics with your student
Review and Remediation
Revisit concepts student don't understand in a more differentiated environment
Students can
and rewatch as needed
Class Environment
Create a dynamic, engaging, and interactive classroom focused on student-to-student interactions
But the flipped classroom is really about what it enables students to do...
Students can pause, rewind and re-watch lessons, truly
learning at their own pace
Students can access the content for their class
anytime, anywhere on any device!
"I remember when I used to do homework at home and I was stuck on a problem, I had nobody to help me, but now
my teacher is here when I need her
Student Benefits and Goals
Don't have to worry about...
Being absent (sick, extra-curriculars) and missing content - can be accessed anywhere, anytime
Lesson being taught too fast to comprehend
Getting stuck on homework problems with no support
Being bored because content is too easy
Forgetting older material and having no way to access it in preparation for tests, exams etc.
Can Focus on:
Being an active and responsible learner
Working and collaborating with classmates to deepen understanding
Being in charge of their learning and success in the class
Working with concepts they need more support in understanding
Managing their time to meet given learning objectives
What do students now do at home?
5 - 15 minutes long
Take notes and copy examples
Pause, rewind, fast forward as needed

Summarize Lesson
Open summary - write 5 - 8 sentences about main points of the lesson
Guided summary - answer guiding questions in complete sentences
Practice - complete practice problems
ask a Question
one they DON'T KNOW and need help answering
one they DO KNOW and can challenge their classmates with the next day
Students are challenged to ask "HOT" questions and are given question starters

Flip your instruction so that students
watch and listen to your lectures.
...for homework, and then use your
precious class-time
for what previously, often was done in homework:
tackling difficult problems,

working in groups

crafting and creating
. Classrooms become laboratories or studios, and yet
content delivery is preserved.
What do students now do in class?
Review lesson as a whole class or in a small group
about important parts of the concept based on their summaries
each other their questions
answers to questions in small groups
Work on
practice problems
as a group
concept quizzes
to prove their understanding of the concept
Create their own problems
and record solutions on video
Work on

Final thoughts on "the flip"
Bottom line:
It's not always the right instructional choice, it's only one tool in our "toolbox". But it can be a
What is the best use of your face to face time?
Flipping can work in any subject area and at any grade level. The question to ask is what do you want your students to be able to do
of in class?
Using this ideology has the ultimate goal of increasing student understanding and ownership of the content
You do not have to fully flip your classroom to receive the benefits of "time-shift" instruction. Think about what lower-level thinking activities can be moved outside of class.
There is no ONE flipped classroom. Take pieces of everything you see and make it work with your students in your classroom.
You can be a good teacher and never use technology, and technology won't turn a bad teacher into a good one. However, a good teacher who uses technology well can make great things happen.
