Flipped Classroom is awesome!
Clintondale high school is a Flipped classroom
Before they were a flipped classroom. Their students were failing. They didn't care about school, homework and even their grade. According to principal Grey Green said," Every year, our failure rates have been through the roof. The students weren’t paying attention, they weren’t doing their homework, they were being disruptive, or they weren’t coming to school at all. Sadly, these issues are not that uncommon, particularly in this economic climate, where the percentage of students who fall into the poverty category is increasing by the day." It means that students didn't care about school at all. So all the staff decide that students should improve their grades. "At Clintondale High School, we have been using this education model for the past 18 months. During this time, our attendance rate has increased, our discipline rate decreased, and, most importantly, our failure rate — the number of students failing each class — has gone down significantly. When we first implemented this model in the ninth grade, our student failure rate dropped by 33% in one year."
