I know I’m a day late in posting my linky, but yesterday I got this spankin’ new blog design installed. Don’t you just love it?! I do!
Tuesdays In The Text is a weekly linky party where you post about a professional-development type text you are reading to inform and inspire other teachers. There are four areas of the linky, each with its own clip art: Title, Author and Chapter; Summary; Reflective Questions and In My Classroom.
After you publish your post, come back and link your post at the bottom of this post using the linky tool. Grab the button above and the ones below and link back to this post on your blog.
Keeping up with my Tuesdays In The Text post from Flip Your Classroom, we’ll check out
Chapter 3: Why You Should Flip Your Classroom from
Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams.
In this chapter, the authors provide compelling reasons and evidence for seriously considering flipping your classroom. The ideas are targeted toward student performance and improving academic growth.
Lots of questions popped up in reading this chapter:
1. How do you see your role as teacher changing if you decide to flip your classroom?
2. How do you see your instruction and instructional delivery changing if you decide to flip your classroom?
3. How do you think students will react to the idea of flipping?
4. Which students might resist flipping? For what reasons?
5. Which students would embrace flipping?
6. Do you already use (even in a limited capacity) digital devices in your classroom? In what ways?
7. What are your main personal and/or professional reasons for wanting to flip your classroom?
In My Classroom spotlights how the chapter you just read applies to or impacts your classroom practice right now.
When I think about all the bolded reasons in the chapter for flipping a classroom, I really want to spend some time internalizing the different ways flipping will help my students achieve more. Not all of these apply to all students, but I want to really understand how flipping will change my students before I go on further.
If I have this correct, the linky will work, you’ll be able to tell me about all the terrific professional development books you’re reading, and I’ll have more books in my TBR pile! Please be a book buddy and check out one or two links before yours.
Until next Tuesday…happy reading!
