FLIPPING YOUR CLASSROOM

The 6-Step Guide

Flipping the Classroom is one of the fastest growing trends in education.

Here are some simple steps you can take to start the big flip!

Step 1

Plan

Figure out which lesson in particular you want to flip. Outline the key learning outcomes and a lesson plan.

Step 2

Record

Instead of teaching this in-person, make a video. A screencast works. Make sure it contains all the key elements you would mention in the classroom.

Step 3

Share

Send that video to your students. Make it engaging and clear. Explain that the video's content will be fully discussed in class.

Step 4

Change

Now that your students have viewed your lesson, they're prepared to actually go more in-depth than ever before.

Step 5

Group

An effective way to discuss the topic is to separate into groups where students are given a task to perform. Write a poem, a play, make a video, etc.

Step 6

Regroup

Get the class back together to share the individual group's work with everyone. Ask questions, dive deeper than ever before.

Now

Review

Go over what worked with the flipped lesson

Revise

Change what didn't work so well.

Repeat

Do it again! The more refining and revising, the better!
