Taking one step at atime.• Take things slow• Have an open mind• Change as you go• Be willing to be the learner• Students will become theteacher• Know your students morethan you ever thought youcould “Everybody is a genius.

Step 3:CHOICE:a. Peer Teaching Peerb. Conference / Meet with Teacher **All students must have a conference with the teacher before the end of the day.Conference helps identify where the student is and discusses strategies. Theteacher and the student will decide together what he will be working on next.FIRST 3 DAYS:WHOLE GROUPINSTRUCTION
"Flipping the Classroom" -- refers to swapping thetraditional lecture and homework method ofteaching.• The flipped classroom allows me to work individually with each student moreeffectively than the "traditional" classroom would allow.• The students who catch on quickly are able to move more rapidly through thematerial.• The students who struggle are able to move at a slower pace and take their time.QuickTime™ and aH.264 decompressorare needed to see this picture.
"Flipping the Classroom" ToolsYou can use the following to record your lessons:1.ScreenFlow --- $992.ShowMe app3.QuickTime --- You can use this with apple computers.4.Screencast-O-Matic -- This is free or you can upgrade for $15 year.I also use PowerPoint and Google Docs to add extra notes and practice problemsthat I feel the students need to have for each unit.
"Flipping the Classroom"Student ReactionsStudent Reactions"My favorite thing about math is the online videos telling you about a new concept becauseyou can individually see the teacher work out the problems on a blank board. I also like howyou can choose what you want to do and when you want to do it. It gives youa lot of freedom.""My favorite thing about math is that you get to work atyour own pace.""My favorite thing about math is that I know what I amgoing to do every day when I walk into class."
Students decide what circuit they will do thatday.DAYS 4, 5 & 6LEARNING CIRCUITS
Program created for 6th grademath placement of studentson days 4, 5, and 6. Resultsare ranked from datacollected from an onlineassessment given in Haiku.An email is then sent to theteacher specifying the “circuit”the student should go to. Ofcourse, the teacher canoverride this placement.
Students are given opportunity to takethe mastery assessment test.The student must earn a 90 or aboveto move to the Guided Challengeportion of the Math Quest.DAY 4MASTERY ASSESSMENTORGUIDED CHALLENGE
