Flipped Classroom Reflection
When I first heard that I was required to make a flipped classroom, I did not really know what that term meant. I have used flipped classrooms as a student in others classes but I didnʼt know thatʼs what they were called. I think that they are very useful and necessary in some cases to proceed with the lessons in the classroom.
I made a unit on ceramic slab building and for one of the lessons I created my first flipped classroom. The guidelines were to make it 2-4 minutes but as I was planning it out but, I needed more time. Putting in the extra time creating the flipped classroom now will save a lot of time in the clay studio classroom with my students.
To start this lesson, students will watch a flipped classroom video the night before so that they have some of the steps in their heads. The instruction for this lesson is much longer than normal so the flipped classroom is essential in allowing students to spend as much time working on clay in the class. Also, in the flipped classroom, students will hear Lingít words and phrases. This integration of the Lingít language and ceramics is more holistic.
I will make many more flipped classrooms in the future for all of my classes. Thank you, Dr. Jason Ohler!
