We are almost finished with a full unit of flipped learning. I am still seeing a big impact in students' engagement levels and understanding of content.
A couple things I have learned and modified since starting...
- changed the Math Circles grouping for better mix
-Google forms-I embed them and share them with students (some students were having trouble filling in the embedded form)
-"Your Choice" -students can choose what to work on during class (enrichment/challenge activities, extra practice, different learning style projects, and small group work, one-on-one with me)
-Mrs. K (similar to Writers Workshop) -students put their name on the board if they have questions or want help. They continue working until their turn.
I had to smile at a conversation I heard two students having. They were bragging about about the amount of notes they took on a video. It made my giggle and so happy because these two students weren't the most engaged before we started flipping. :)
One last thing, I gave a flipped PD presentation for my colleagues yesterday. I put it on with my husband, who is also flipping all of his upper school math classes. We structured the workshop like we do our flipped classes and teachers were able to work through videos we created at their own pace while we were available for questions. It went really well and we received great feedback to help us make some tweaks before we present for a chance to go to AASSA conference.
Mrs. K has been teaching for eight years. She has taught in three different countries and loves each one for its uniqueness.
