When I wasn't flipping:
I was spending most of class time doing direct

I was spending
many extra hours tutoring

RHS Class of 2013
So, how do I get started?
Record Your Lesson
Length: 1 to 1.5 minutes per grade level
Take notes and copy examples (I suggest providing them with a notes packet to model how they should take notes)
Pause, rewind, fast forward as needed
Model how to watch videos for education!
Be F.I.T. and Check your T.E.C.H.
How will you hold students accountable?
GOOGLE FORMS!! (WSQ)
Open summary - write 5-8+ sentences about main points of lesson
Guided summary - answer "guiding" questions in complete sentences
Take Baby Steps
Think of lessons where flipping "fits"
Survey students about access to technology
Find a collaboration teaching partner
Students need to be transitioned

working in groups
. Classrooms become laboratories or studios, and yet
content delivery is preserved.
What do students do in class now?
Time Frame for My Class (sample: 48 minute classes)
5 minutes-teacher intro, student objective
for the day
10-15 minutes-WSQ chat activity
Student work time for practice, application, make instruction video, formative assessment, etc.
Possible small group with teacher if needed.
Teacher checking in with students constantly, redirecting and focusing.
Whole-class clarifications (2-4 minutes) if needed.
3-5 minutes-teacher wrap up and next steps
Review WSQs as a whole class or in small groups using Kagan strategies
about important parts of the concept based on their summaries
each other their questions
answers to questions in small groups
answers to "secret problems"
as a group
to prove their understanding of the concept
activities or projects
related to lesson
own problems and
Ask me or their peers for help
Re-watch lesson as needed
So, what do the students say?
Final thoughts on "the flip"
It's not always the right instructional choice; it's just one tool in our "toolbox". But it can be a
Remember that the flipped classroom is about
increasing the 1:1 time
with your students.
"What's the best use of the 'face to face' time with your students?"
Students need to be
. This is a change for them and change is not always easy!
Don't look at the Flipped Classroom as a way to get more material covered. Yes, you will have more time so you could "fit" in more topics; but, it is better if you
cover topics in more depth.
"Flipping" can work in any
subject area and any grade level.
Using this method 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
There is no ONE flipped classroom. Take pieces of everything that you see and
make it work with your students in your classroom.
