It started with a simple observation: students need their teachers present to answer questions or to provide help if they get stuck on an assignment; they don't need their teachers present to listen to a lecture or review content. From there, authors Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams began the flipped classroom-students watched recorded lectures for homework and completed their assignments, labs, and tests in class with their teacher available.
What Bergmann and Sams found was that their students demonstrated a deeper understanding of the material than ever before. This is the authors story, and they're confident it can be yours too. Learn what a flipped classroom is and why it works and get the information you need to flip a classroom.
You'll also learn the flipped mastery model, where students learn at their own pace-furthering opportunities for personalized education. This simple concept is easily replicable in any classroom, doesn't cost much to implement, and helps foster self-directed learning. Once you flip, you wont want to go back!
often modify their work on the fly by asking them to complete only key problems instead of all of them. This way our students who struggle will learn the essential objectives and not get bogged down with some of the more advanced topics that may just confuse them. During my time in undergrad and graduate school, I heard about how students do not all learn the same way, or at the same pace. These classes introduced the concept of a differentiated classroom, but I never knew how I could actually
to create content to demonstrate their understanding of various topics. They can blog, create videos, create podcasts, and create many different educational products that help students build on their knowledge. We see great value in student-created content. Chapter 5 THE Flipped-Mastery Classroom Mastery learning has been around for quite some time. It was first introduced in the 1920s, but it got little attention until the 1960s, when it was popularized by Benjamin Bloom. He likened our
receiving individualized safety instructions. The Mastery Model makes teacher-led demonstrations more engaging Similar to labs, a key component in most science courses is teacher-led demonstrations. In our chemistry course we boil water by adding ice, we burn paper with steam, and we have students light us on fire. In the past, we conducted these demonstrations as part of our lecture in front of the whole class. Under the flipped model, we still did these as whole-class demonstrations. When we
objective/standards-based grading, and educational technology were all tapped to help create the flipped-mastery model of teaching. Chapter 7 How to Implement THE Flipped-Mastery Model So, now you are convinced. You want to implement some form of a flipped-mastery classroom. But you have questions and concerns. There are so many logistical details you need to work out. What about X? What about Y? What will this even look like in your circumstances? Although there are similarities among
spend a considerable amount of time at the beginning of the year training the students to view our videos effectively. We encourage them to turn off iPods, phones, and other distractions while they watch the video. We then teach them that they now have the ability to “pause” and “rewind” their teacher. We encourage them to liberally use the pause button so they can write down key points of the lesson. In addition, we instruct them in the Cornell note-taking method, in which they take notes,
