•The flipped classroom inverts traditional teachingmethods, delivering instruction outside of the classroomand moving “homework” into the classroom. • Responsibility for learning flipped from the teacher’s hands to the student’s hands (A college readiness skill) • Face to face time flipped from teacher focused to student focused. • Focus of class time flipped from lower order thinking to higher order thinking.
o To make the best use of our class timeo To challenge ourselves in new wayso To prepare students to be 21st century learners for 21st century college and careerso The ultimate goal is to help you learn!
Watch Summarize Question (WSQ)1. Watch a video at home (or read the text) and take guided notes.2. Complete the Guided Notes and Summary Questions (Answer 2 – 5 questions).3. Ask a “HOT” question. (Higher order thinking questions – cannot be yes or no!) • A specific question about an example that was worked out and where you got stuck or confused • A general question about the concept and something that was said or explained • A question that could be asked and expected to be answered after watching the video. This may be a question you think your classmates might have, or just a good question you think I (the teacher) would ask and expect you to know.4. Process the lesson – let the information settle inNote: some nights you will have “traditional homework” for examplethe night before a test.
1. Brief overview (2 minutes max)of video highlights (whole class). Teacher may also give you some goals/tasks to accomplish during your WSQ chat.2.

Practice and Activities• Work on the assigned practice problems and/or activities.• Teacher check off WSQ completion• Elements of a “Complete WSQ” include • Guided Notes • HOT Question • Answer to HOT Question4. Small group (or whole class)re-teaching as needed
• Students are expected to come to class prepared with background knowledge of the concepts, ready to learn more about it and gain a deeper understanding. • Students are NOT expected to have full mastery of the content• Students must take responsibility for their learning in several ways • They must plan time to watch the videos • They should take the initiative to re-watch videos as needed • If they are absent they should still watch the required videos and come to class prepared • Communicate with me if there are issues.
