What is your advice about? Flipped learning
1: Try it; it can be scary because it involves relinquishing control of the learning and putting responsibility with the students.
2: Plan for the students that don’t do the work at home. Even in my best classes I never get 100% homework completion; assume some students won’t have prepared for the lesson.
3: Be really clear in what you expect the students to do to prepare for the lesson. Direct them to videos and/or text book pages.
4: This is the perfect opportunity for differentiation. Don’t expect everyone to be at the same level when they come back into the classroom.
5: Expect some reluctance from students when you introduce the idea, they don’t like new things, they like being spoon-fed. The idea of them teaching themselves will scare them.
