Welcome!!! Open House 2013 Chemistry Mrs. Harlan
What is a flipped class? • Lectures are done outside of class (YouTube) • Traditional homework is done mostly in class • Clintondale HS in Detroit http://flippedhighschool.com/
Why a flipped class? • Student controls pace of lecture • Students do practice in the presence of their teacher • Absent students don’t miss out on lecture • Enables us to do more labs • Prepares students for college
How does it work? • Students watch lecture video and take notes, pausing video when needed • While watching video, students jot down questions to ask in class next day • First thing next class day, students take a quick video quiz that is NOT comprehension based • After quiz, students ask questions, teacher clarifies • After clarification, students work on practice questions or do a lab
Your Turn • Ask whatever questions you have.
