A Look Inside a Flipped-Mastery Social Studies Class

One of the comments I heard from educators after presenting at least week's Flipped Learning Conference in Hartford was that they understood the concept, but could not picture how it would actually work in their classrooms.  I have had similar questions posed to me in the past via Twitter and in comments on this blog, so I decided to take some video of last Friday's world history class and put together a brief compilation.

Below is a look at a typical day in our flipped-mastery world history course.  There are three basic components of each class:
  • Warmup (warmup activity, debrief/discussion/modeling, progress monitoring, goal setting)
  • Unit Work Session (students work on mastering learning objectives)
  • Reflection (students reflect on their accomplishments for the day)

Take a look and tell me what you think!  Please post any comments or questions below, or contact me directly on Twitter  @Mr_Driscoll or thdriscoll@gmail.com.
