Flipped Learning Open Houses Thursday 10/18

On Thursday, October 18th, three contributors to Flipped-History will be hosting Flipped Learning Open Houses.  As described by the Flipped Learning Network...

 "Experienced educators in Flipped Classrooms across the globe will open their doors to allow interested educators and students to see how Flipped Learning works and what happens when learning is turned on its head. Flipped Class Open Houses are intended to shed light on this approach to learning and encourage other teachers and administrators to give Flipped Learning a try in their own schools/districts."  

Up until recently, the flipped class approach has been adopted mostly by math and science educators.  This is your chance to observe the flipped learning models implemented in social studies classrooms!  Here is some brief information regarding the three flipped-history educators opening up their classrooms on October 18th. (More information can be found on the official site.)
