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. Flipping your classroom is not meant to be an end in and of itself. It is a mechanism for changing the focus of the learning in your classroom and to create deeper student understanding. The Flipped Mastery model then provides an even deeper level of learning than a simple flipped approach. This is where asynchronous learning and differentiated instruction really comes into play. As I go through my first full year of flipping, I will come back to this book repeatedly as I look to constantly improve upon the implementation in my classroom. This is a process not a goal. I cannot see how I will ever be 100% satisfied with my implementation. There will always be a way to take it further and to help my students learn even better. I am grateful to Aaron and Jon (and the entire Flipped Class community) for helping me along this journey. As a teacher of 17 years I can honestly say that this approach has completely re-energized me. I could not possibly recommend any book any more highly than I do this one!!!
Authors: Jonathan Bergmann & Adam Sams
Background Story: In 2007, two science teachers, Jonathan Bergman and Aaron Sams realized that they were spending an excessive amount of time on catching up students when they missed class. There were many reasons for students missing class, mostly athletes who struggled to keep up and be in class when they had to miss school for competitions. These teachers began creating lessons together and grew tired over the absent situations. To his pleasure, Aaron discovered he could record his lessons using technology tools. After enlightening Jonathan, the two began recording themselves to prevent having to re-teach so often to absent students. To improve learning in the classroom, they decided to flip theirs! This book describes what did and did not work within their classrooms.
This easy and quick-read definitely provided lots of helpful trial and error tips coming from two teachers' own experiences. Understanding that this is a true story and coming from teachers who truly want to share their ideas and help other teachers makes the book all the more wonderful. The audience is able to learn a lot about how to flip their own classroom.
The authors mention several stories about losing face to face interaction, increasing the interaction with their students, teaching all learners, etc. Any approach to successfully flipping a classroom was noted and further discussed. I really enjoyed that the authors spoke from experience and noted what they learned to do, as well as suggesting it to their readers. Teachers really need a variety of ideas, and they definitely touched on numerous!
In conclusion, I greatly benefited from reading this book and agreed with everything it suggested. Having knowledgeable authors write about something that is passionate to the audience makes all the difference in memorable writing. This is definitely the type of quick read I will read several times while preparing for my future classroom in just a few short years! The right reason to flip a classroom is to enhance student learning!
Here is my favorite passage/quote that really stuck with me after reading Flip Your Classroom: "The time when students really need me physically present is when they get stuck and need my individual help. They don't need me there in the room with them to yak at them and give them content; they can receive content on their own." Aaron's realization, a flipped classroom is born!
