Flipped classroom empowers Middle School math students to learn at their own pace
Boys use instructional videos to learn at home and complete coursework during class.
Several years ago Middle School faculty Craig Chewning, Christie Wilson, and Brian Zollinhofer developed instructional videos for boys to watch for homework. This "flipped" model of learning allows boys greater independence in completing their coursework. After watching the instructional videos at home, the boys are able to use class time to complete assignments and progress in the course at their own pace. They're also able to get feedback or help from their peers. The teachers are available at the back of the classroom to answer questions as needed.
