Algebra 1 Part 1
Algebra 1 Part 2
1. Overwhelmed with a crazy couple of weeks... just my thoughts.
2. A TON of thoughts about Monday's #flipclass chat. Lots of ramblings and ideas floating through my head. Post here.
Also, it was a great reminder of something... all of the questions posed in the project were ones we had discussed in small groups last week. While several students could still explain and answer them, several of them still didn't really understand and/or forgot all about our discussions, even though they were about 15 minutes of class each day in small groups. I need to find a way to hold all students in the group accountable for their understanding of the material, and not just let one or two group members dominate the conversation, or let a "oh yeah I get it now" pass for true understanding.
I presented my first webinar on Tuesday afternoon for a group of educators in Sacramento. It was pretty exciting and fun to talk about something that I have become so passionate about. The feedback was really great.
I am hosting a webinar on Wednesday, 5/9/12 at 4pm PST. Here is the link to register (Free). I will be talking about why I flipped my classroom, the benefits of flipping for teachers and students, and giving examples of what my flipped classroom looks like and how I've made it work wonders in my classroom. I hope you can make it!
If you haven't checked out my Blogroll on the right hand side of other flipping teachers, do so! It is only through sharing and community that we learn and grow! Also, be sure to use #flipclass on twitter to join in the conversation. If you are a "flipper" and a "blogger" and don't see your blog on the right, please let me know. I would love to follow you and read up on your experiences!
2. Begin coming up with activities students can do to apply their knowledge or practice their knowledge in different ways once they get the basics. Again, this is something I think may just start to happen over the summer or next year since right now it's just crazy.
