Flip Your Classroom is a strong pick for those looking for ways for technology to revolutionize the classroom and enable students to succeed at higher levels. --James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief of The Midwest Book Review, Oregon, Wisc.

Throughout, [Bergmann and Sams] maintain their passion about serving students, of putting kids at the front of every decision and ensuring the technology choices follow the learning goals. They are open-minded, experimental, and truly innovative in all the right ways. They take care to offer clarity of direction, to be nuanced and open-minded, allowing for nuance and for variety. --Jonathan Martin, education writer and consultant, Tucson, Ariz. (This review appeared in the 21k12 blog.)

Customer Reviews

The book was interesting and easy to read.
While this book made it sound like the flipped mastery model was the best way to go, it made me feel a little uneasy about a few things.
Taryn Crouch
In this book Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams describe how and why they went about flipping their classroom.

The other reviewers have already done a spectacular job discussing the gist of the flipped model that Jon and Aaron have laid out in the book so I won't re-hash all of that. I would rather talk about the usefulness of the book to any classroom teacher thinking about trying this model.

I began flipping my Math Analysis (Pre-Calculus) classes second semester last year after reading only a few articles about it. I had already been recording my lectures and posting them online for absent students for a year or so, so the technology was already in place for me. While I experienced tremendous success with it (even at the basic level that I implemented), I can only wish that I had this book in my hands before I started. I had to figure out what to do and, more importantly, what not to do on the fly on a daily basis. How do you deal with technology issues? What about students who don't watch the videos? How do you check to see who is actually watching and who isn't? etc. This book would have saved me countless sleepless hours and additional gray hairs. Jon and Aaron have written a book that lays out the basic tenets of the model in an easily understandable and usable way. This book is short and to the point. They left all of the fluff out and got right down to the backbone issues that need to be addressed for a successful flipped classroom. They have also thrown in real world examples from other teachers which is always highly useful.

In addition to laying out the details of the model, they then move on to talk about the Flipped Mastery model. Being that I already have the video technology in place and am already going to be flipping all of my classes this year, this was really the most informative part of the book for me.

I am a high school math teacher and am looking forward to teaching my second semester of classes using the flipped model. I found this book to be an interesting read, if for no other reason than to hear about the experiences of the two pioneers. Just reading about the authors' experiences, and about the experiences of other teachers who have flipped their classrooms, was very valuable. They do a good job explaining the why behind flipped learning, and are also very clear that it does not magically eliminate all of the challenges associated with teaching.

I also felt, however, that the book made flipping seem unnecessarily complicated and intimidating. The authors devote 3 of the 9 chapters to the "Flipped-Mastery" model, a specific implementation of the flipped learning model which they use in their classrooms. While it was interesting to read about this model and their experience with it, it felt much too advanced for me to consider; having just flipped my classroom, I'm still getting used to the "ordinary" flipped classroom model. In particular, when I flipped my classes, I discovered almost immediately that my students were working in small groups much more than they did previously, and figuring out the best way to facilitate the small groups during class time has been a challenge. I would have liked to have read more about the author's experiences with small groups in their classes, as well as specific methods they use with students working in groups.

Also, the videos which the authors use in their classes are screencasts created using a software app called Camtasia, and they go into some detail on their process of planning and creating these screencasts.

Every teacher says it to him/herself at some point: if only we could get to x, y, or z activity after the direct instruction. As a former high school teacher (and current college instructor), I recall the feeling that my classes never had enough time to work on problems, discuss the material, or do an activity after my direct instruction was delivered. the flipped classroom, as detailed in this book, is a great way to make sure class time IS devoted to such activities.

If you are reading this review, you are probably - at least vaguely - familiar with the flipped classroom model. Essentially, it 'flips' how we use class and homework time. It used to be that you gave direct instruction in class and left students with expansion-activities (homework) to do at home. Well, in this day and age, it is quite easy to 'deliver' direct instruction at home (podcasts, videos, reading) leaving class time free to do the expansion stuff that may require student/teacher and student/student interaction. This book is written by the two high school science teachers some say are the 'originators' of the flipped classroom model (though they will likely admit that they were really the popularizers and tweakers of it).

The book is broken up essentially into two halves - the first exploring the basic 'flipped classroom' model, and the next, the 'flipped mastery' model - the flipped model where students now work at their own pace. Each half consists of a chapter trying to sell us on the 'whys' of the flipped classroom (increases student engagement, makes class time more fun than a string of lecture performances, etc) and a chapter detailing how one might flip a classroom (start with learning objectives, record videos/audio of lessons, etc).
