Teaching Methods

Nice to meet you all!

Started almost 4 years ago by Alyse Riehl.

Hello, Everyone!  My name is Alyse Riehl, and I am really excited for this program.  I wish there had been a choice of "Other" for the category above, because I just wanted to say hello to my new team! 
I do have a question, though, to start off: has anyone on our team used a flipped classroom method in their classroom?

    Hi all! I am so happy to be part of the team!

    I wanted to let you know that for the last four years that I taught I used the flipped classroom method with my Honors and AP Chemistry classes. I attended a flipped learning conference hosted by Aaron Samms and Jonathon Bergman out in Colorado one summer and it gave me the confidence to give it a try. I flipped the Honors classes first - used Camtasia Studio to make my own videos. It was a lot of work, but I really think that it paid off. The students really liked it - those that went on to take AP the next year begged me to flip that class too. If you have questions, just let me know.

    I teach Honors Chemistry and AP Chemistry a large (2800) High School in western suburbs of Chicago. I just had kids take Chemistry Olympiad test last year. I left studying up to them and they liked experience. more info here: https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/education/students/highschool/olympiad.html

    HI I am glad to be included. I don't really do flipped classroom (although I did take course in it). I tend to give reading or (rarely) video to do outside of class, then use class time to discuss and work on hard AP problems. Our AP Bio teacher has recorded lectures and has kids watch over night.
