Engaging Parents in Flipped Model• Engagement with child to watch videotogether• Higher level, academic conversations withtheir child based on the flipped lesson• Like CCSS ELA shift in questioning fromtext, parents can question from video• Meaningful and purposeful academicdiscussions
Administration Concerns• Flipping is not abdication of teaching• Students who do not have access at home• Ensuring that students do the flippedhomework
