2:00 – 3:00 EXERCISE: Draft a Flipped Lesson Plan
Write a Flipped Lesson Plan, for just one lesson. Be sure to consider:
- How you will introduce the learning material they will consume outside of class?
- What specific content (videos, text, audio?) will students be required to consume?
- What measures will you employ to help ensure that students engage with the content?
- How you use the valuable face-to-face classroom time you have now made available in the next class session?
Collaborating to Review and Enhance Each Other’s Lesson Plans
- We will review each other’s Drafted Lesson Plans and look for opportunities to improve on them. This should provide good ground for deeper thinking and idea generation about additional flipped lesson plans you will be creating, and related considerations.
