Flipping my classroom
- I have "flipped my classroom" this past term.
I teach my college students every Tuesday and Thursday. On Thursday I give
them an assignment which is not homework to review a lesson but it is the
actual lesson. The students teach themselves this lesson. Then the next week
the first thing we do in our Tuesday class is to do a quick paper quiz with
just nine questions. Students who score 90-100% on this quiz will "test out"
of the Thursday class. They don't need to come to the Thursday class.
Instead I send them to another room where they will spend the class time
watching an English movie.
The students who do not test out will come to the regular class and I will
go over the material that they didn't do or get well enough. There is a high
motivation to "test out" of class.
