Questions to Consider before Flipping
Moran, Clarice M.; Young, Carl A.
Phi Delta Kappan, v97 n2 p42-46 Oct 2015
Flipping the classroom is one of the hottest new educational ideas that promises to increase student engagement. However, recent research suggests that not all content areas are equal when it comes to flipping. English language arts and humanities-based subjects may not benefit as much as math and science classes and, in fact, decrease student engagement. The authors posit five key questions that teachers and administrators should consider before advocating a flipped classroom approach.
