Outline a Flipped Lesson Plan, for just one lesson. Be sure to consider:
- What is the topic you are creating this flipped lesson for?
- How you will introduce the learning material (in class) that they will consume outside of class?
- What specific content (videos, text, audio?) will students be required to consume for this lesson?
- How will you deliver the content to the students?
- What measures will you employ to help ensure that students engage with the content?
- How will now you use the valuable face-to-face classroom time you have made available in the next class session?
Email your outline to me at email@example.com. We will review a few of them.
