Transcript of Flip Class + High School Math = Student Engagement

Flip Class
+ High School Math
Student Engagement

What is the best use of the
face to face time teachers
have with their students?
What is Flipped Learning?
"Flipped Learning occurs when direct instruction is moved from the group teaching space to the individual learning environment."

Carla Dalton
Math Interventionist
Watauga Middle School

My Story
It all began
three years
There has to be something better...
Something more
What does this mean?
Get the teacher out of the front of the classroom
Students taking control and responsibility for their learning
How is it done?
Remove instruction from group learning spaces by utilizing technology such as videos, websites, and other resources to help students learn.
Give students choice in how and where they learn.
Passive Learners

Active Learners
What does this mean?
Students actively engaged in their learning for the entire class period.
Students collaborating with their peers and receiving individual or small group help from the teacher as needed.
How is it done?
Develop engaging in class learning activities, collaborative assignments, and practice problems.
Lower-Order Thinking

Higher-Order Thinking
What does this mean?
Class time is focused on applying, analyzing, evaluating and creating.
Any knowledge or information dissemination is completed out of the group learning space.
How is it done?
Continue to develop and revamp in class activities to challenge student thinking and learning at deeper levels.
Promote inquiry and discovery, as well as project-based learning, as you see fit in your content area.
{From FlippedLearning.org}
"Class time is then used for active problem solving by students and one-to-one or small group interactions with the teacher. Students can watch the short lessons as many times as they wish to grasp the content and come to class ready to jump into the lesson, answer questions, work on collaborative projects, and explore the content further."
Whenever possible, find a way to have students do some sort of exploratory activity before receiving the instruction from the teacher.
See Ramsey Musallam's "Explore-Flip-Apply"
Examples (high school math):
Factoring by grouping using discovery
Properties of logs-exploratory activity
Conic Sections-applets to explore shapes and shifts
Exploring Function Shifts-using www.desmos.com
Rate of Change as it applies to slope
Instruction can be delivered via:
teacher-created video
resources online (videos, websites, applets, etc.)
structured exploratory activities
*Remember the purpose:
to free up class time from lower order, teacher-centered activities and focus on student-centered, active and higher-order learning activities.
Video Tips:
Length: 1-1.5 minutes per grade level
Teach and model for students how to learn from a video (Be F.I.T. and check your T.E.C.H.)
Best teacher-created: PIP option to have teacher's face
Use editing features, callouts, etc. to draw attention to students (Camtasia is great!)
Include multimedia (images, external videos) to engage students (use Sophia.org to organize tutorials with multiple forms of media in one lesson)
Prompt students to pause at key points
"Secret Questions" throughout video for students to stay engaged
Watch Summarize Question
this is a Google form that students fill out
after watching the video to assess learning
Hey Students,
go home and watch
this video!
When you're watching, I want
you to take notes. At the end
of the video, you are going to
think about what you learned, answer a few questions, and write a summary. Then, you will write down any questions you still have and bring them to class.
=Supporting Students+Fewer Excuses
Content Organization
Parental Support
Introduction video to flipped model for instruction
Online Parent Survey
Whether it be...
online or written
How do you know that students actually watched the video? And learned the concepts?
Make Google Forms work for you...
Check out:
VLookup (can keep record of who did/didn't submit the WSQ)
Flubaroo (can grade it for you)
ImportRange (combine several spreadsheets into one)
Use Forms for differentiation
The WSQ is an EXCELLENT entry point to
effective, engaging, enjoyable class time!
"WSQ Chat"
Peer Instruction
Hands-on Activity (card sort, etc)
Challenge Problems
"Big Questions" -must have proof of their discussion through notes/visual/etc., teacher comes around and discuss with each group for a few minutes
Going Deeper/Discovery activity (if the video just introduced basics)
(first 5-10 minutes of class)
Small Group with teacher
Quiz Corrections
Class Discussion
Practice Problems
Further explanation about lesson video
Flexible Peer Groups
Practice Problems
Continued Discussion
Student created work/peer evaluation
Student problems/videos
Big Questions
Real World Applications
Concept quizzes taken when students are ready for them (with deadlines, of course)
Exams (all students take at same time)
where are students going from here?
how is what they are learning connected to what is coming next?
what can they expect to see tonight?
Time Frame for My Class (sample: 48 minute classes)
5 minutes-teacher intro, plan for the day
10-15 minutes-WSQ chat activity
20-25 minutes-
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
Resources to learn more:
Flipped Learning Network -
access press, blogs, webinars, and more!
Flipped Learning Network Ning -
connect with other Flipped Learning Educators, join content area groups, etc!
Twitter -
#flipclass chat on Mondays 7pm CST
Crystal Kirch -
a TON of resources and tips (some were put into this prezi)
The key elements of the flipped classroom are succintly described as collaboration, inquiry, and interactivity. The students have opportunities to become active learners and they are supported to focus on their specific learning needs.
