The Flipped Classroom at JWP
The Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton teaching staff have been researching ways to innovate instruction to better meet the needs of our students. One of those strategies identified by our staff was the "Flipped Classrom". Several of our teachers have taken on this challenge and are bringing this approach to our students.
The "Flipped Classroom" essentially inverts the classroom. Instruction takes place online away from school and homework is brought to the classroom. This instruction is typically completed via an online video. By doing so, students receive support on homework from the trained classroom teacher. The examples I provide below are all math focused. Please take some time to peruse these videos. If you are feeling really ambitious, try a few of the problems on your own.

Example 2 - Elementary 5th Grade Math - Click Here
If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to contact me directly. As a disclaimer, I couldn't post all videos of the "Flipped Classroom" work being done by our staff. Should you want to see more, please let me know.
