How to Start Your Students on the Flipped Experience

So yesterday when George Coe and I were teaching how to flip, Frank Franz was sitting on the sidelines and occasionally answering questions.  One of the best questions was how do you get your students to accept the concept of flipping.  Well Frank is more than on top of this as he has a Google Sites page you will want to check out as well as a video for students to be introduced to the concept as well as parents (above).  But it is better than that as Frank is flipping his back to school night (in VA we have the parents come in and meet the teachers for 10 minutes).   So Frank (and I this year) are e-mailing our parents our flipped video and then giving them a Google form for their questions.  Then, for the 10 minutes we see them will give go over the questions and additional ones that come up so the parents can actually experience what their kids are doing in class.   Frank is also doing standards based learning this year which he also explains in the video.

I am sure that creating outstanding or at least exciting studying circumstances is crucial for a successful academic process. I have lots of curricular and extracurricular lessons and activities but it takes a lot of time to participate there. That's why I was forced to look for a reliable professional writer and found out about Essay Lab online essay writers. Now I am sure that academic process is possible in a combination with an exciting spare time and personal life. Still, I think our professors should invent something exciting too!

Nice post. It was very interesting to read. If you want to use some writing service next time, please, read some coursework writing service before. It would be helpful.
