I have been doing a great deal of research on what it means to have a flipped classroom. These are the main concepts that I have come to understand what goes in to flipping your classroom: video recording of instruction, use class time for homework and project based instruction, and ability to set up stations more effectively. I have been processing and processing this classroom concept, and I am seriously thinking about cost and gains. Right now, I am only able to see gains. By having students listen to instruction with headphones, there are less interruptions and students are able to focus on the instruction instead of the disruptive behavior on the other side of the room. I would have a station where the students would investigate the concept that they are studying at a deeper level by having them look for information on line. I would have a station where I give additional help to students and it is at this station that they are able to ask their questions. This teaches the students to ask legitimate questions and not questions to entertain their classmates. One of the final stations that the students would go to would ask them to reflect on the concepts presented and apply them to modern times/ lives/ society. The stations could vary depending on the concepts being presented, and there could be some optional stations that allow for differentiation. There may be a station for the students to create a play and act it out. There may be a station for students to create a video journal that allows them to tell you what they know. One thing that is definitely going change in my room is the setup of the room. I will take out half to 2/3 of the desks and set up areas of the room that are more conducive to the station requirements. Please feel free to add to this article with your comments. I am not set on the idea, but I sure can see its potential. Let me know what you think.
