Taking a risk in education is something that teachers may experience on a yearly basis. Some teachers enjoy the comfort of stationary stability. That may sound a bit redundant, but it is easy for people to teach the same material each year in the virtually the same environment. Now, there is not anything necessarily wrong this approach as long as teachers are teaching the standards and helping students reach their potential. Other teachers get a thrill out of trying something, or many things, new each year, or several times a year. These teacher embrace disappointments that they can learn from and successes they can build on.
Flipping the classroom can be a scary experience. Taking something that has always been completed in the classroom and moving it and modifying it for an outside-of-the-classroom activity is taking a risk. However, as intimidating as it may sound, flipping the classroom is doable in various settings and can be a rewarding experience that is well worth the risk.
If you are a teacher who wants to explore taking a small risk, I would like to invite you to attend the “Flipping the English Classroom” webinar on June 24th at 8:00 P.M. EDT.
In this webinar, we will explore ways for how teachers can do simple activities outside of class as a way to flip what has been traditionally kept in the classroom, we will look at how easy it can be add differentiation strategies, and we will examine ways to provide formative assessment feedback to help students reach standards.
