A great place to start flipping your classroom!!
on 15 August 2012
As a teacher from the UK, I am continuously trying to improve my relationships with pupils to allow pupils to learn how to learn. I have recently started to look at the flipped model of learning and how this has been implemented in other teachers classrooms. This book is an EXCELLENT starting point for any teacher who is thinking about using the model.
The main part of the book that got me really thinking about how my pupils could progress using this model was the flipped mastery chapters. I had some knowledge of the 'flip' idea - yet this really opened my mind to the prospect of personalised learning and allowing all pupils to achive and succeed - at their own pace! No more moving on when half of the pupils in front of you have no idea what you have been going on about and the other half wished you had moved on weeks ago.
As a teacher in England, I have been busy preparing my videos for the new term (starting September 2012) and I have even started a blog to enable me to keep a track of how it goes. For the first time in years I am actually looking forwards to the start of a new year - OFSTED due in October, I wonder what they will say??
Thanks Jonathan and Aaron for producing a book that - I'm sure - takes a worldwide (and not just an American view) on 'What is best for the kids' - and giving me the impetus to go and do it!!
(P.S. I should really have produced a video review - I may do in the future!!)
