  6. 6. Teaching new concepts in my traditional classroom “Lecture style” lessons to front load students with required knowledge and process. Students would then practice this in the class with what ever class time was left, with an expectation that their learning would continue at home where they would do more exercises to help reinforce the concepts.
  7. 7. Explicit teaching of new concepts I do it The teacher models the proper way to understand and perform the steps in the new concept being taught. We do it The teacher gives an example question/problem for the students to complete to demonstrate their understanding of the new concept being taught. You do it Students complete independent practice of the new concept. Scaffolded further exploration of more complex thinking around the new concept.
  8. 8. Susie needs to clean the guttering on her roof. She places her ladder 1.2m back from the edge of the guttering that is 3m above the ground. How long will Susie’s ladder need to be (correct to 2 decimal places)? Find the length of the hypotenuse. InclassAthome
  9. 9. A flipped classroom is where students do for homework what they would traditionally do in the classroom, and they do in the classroom what they would traditionally do at home.
  10. 10. Teaching new concepts in my flipped classroom Students watch pre-recorded “lecture style” for homework BEFORE the lesson. This allows students to come into class already front loaded with the required knowledge and processes. Classroom time is then used to work on the exercises that allows students to gain a deeper understanding of the new concepts.
