The Flipped Classroom in World History
Gaughan, Judy E.
History Teacher, v47 n2 p221-244 Feb 2014
The flipped Classroom is one in which lectures are presented as homework outside of class in online videos so that class time is reserved for engaging directly with the materials. This technique offers more personalized guidance and interaction with students, instead of lecturing. In this article, Judy Gaughan details her journey through choosing and implementing this method for her World History class. She begins with the first "bee in her bonnet" that introduced this idea to her at a teaching workshop, and details the technology, legal aspects, pedagogy, and content videos used. To help determine the success of the course, she created a ten-question survey for the students to complete at the end of the semester. The survey results are available in their entirety in the appendix at the end of this article. Gaugan reports that overall the class was a success. The students engaged with the primary source material more regularly than before the flipped classroom.
