Flipped English: Way Beyond the Video

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With six combined years of flipped English experience spanning 6th-12th grade, we will share the pedagogy, strategies and activities that work in creating a project-based, inquiry-driven classroom. We will talk about video and its role in our classrooms, but what's more important is what's left after instruction is pushed to video. Using our face-to-face time with students in the best possible way has been our obsession, and we invite you to learn from our failures, missteps and successes. From new takes on Socratic Seminar, to ways to integrate grammar that aren't drill-n-kill, to rethinking how literature is taught, to making time for in-depth writing workshops with every student, we will take our classrooms apart and share the structures and assignments that have helped us be more effective teachers than we were before the flip.
