When talking with strangers about teaching, one thing I find myself saying all the time is, “Never a dull day!”
Well, nothing could be more true! As some of you know, I flipped my classes a few years back. It’s great; I love the fact that my instruction is available “on demand.” My students love it. Their parents love it. My administration loves it. So, I’m good, right?
I’m not bitter, but I just came across an article about how the best way to teach is to flip the flipped classroom. Read that last sentence again. Yes, now that I’ve flipped, studies show that I should flip it more! I’m actually laughing as I write this.
Now, to be fair, I’m actually pretty excited about this. It makes sense to me that students should engage in exploratory activities before they move into the direct instruction phase. It will certainly change my world, though!
Cheers to a new school year! What are you changing?
