"What classroom projects/assignments are you doing with #flipclass?"
Other links to check out:
- Class sizes in California are huge. I'm flipping with class sizes of 33,34,37,37,37. There is so much more I could do with my students (flipped class or not) with class sizes even an ounce smaller. I am constantly moving from group to group (gosh I'm exhausted at the end of every period!) and asking questions, but there is still that student or two who slips by and continues to get off task, even though they know they are just creating more work for themselves. When will they learn? When I was in high school, if you had a class of 32 students, it was COMPLETELY FULL and you thought it was huge. They just get bigger every year. I would LOVE to have class sizes of even just 30. 25 - amazing. 20? priceless. 15 - life changing :)
- A discussion on grades... which is more important - learning or grades? To me - the learning. To our students - most of them, grades. Transitioning them to realize it's about their learning - not about "getting the work done" or "getting an A" is a hard process but I feel like I have made progress this year in at least putting that idea in my students' heads.
- Some thoughts on #flipclass visitors and what they expect to see. I've got up to 9 more coming Thursday. Kinda stressful since I was out today and will be out tomorrow, but hopefully it will be fine. The kids are just so burnt out at this time of the year that I hope it's a good example of a flipped classroom. I want more teachers to start using this ideology as I think it is absolutely amazing!
